Readers Write: A creative and thoughtful collector
By Chris Olds | Beckett Basketball Editor
We get a lot of emails with ideas, questions and comments about the hobby, but the above video letter from basketball collector Folkert Leffring, who is from the Netherlands but living in Spain, was one of the more memorable and thoughtful ones we have received recently.
The challenges of collecting American cards overseas is one thing to consider. The challenges of collecting NBA autographs is even bigger.
Despite this, he crafts his own cards to send off to players for signing — and he had an idea about a potential charity auction that he wanted to share. We want to know what you guys think.
You can watch a second video he made showing off some of his other card creations he has made and had signed after the jump.
Let us know what you think in the comments below.
