USA Today cover story looks at loss of a collector


By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

Today’s issue of USA Today features a cover story that’s got quite a large collecting tie — the death of a man who was at home when a plane crashed two years ago, killing him and the 49 people on board.

As it turns out, he was a serious collector and all that’s largely left of the memories are bits and pieces of items in baggies — as they were once collected as debris and potential evidence in the accident’s investigation.

The story was posted Thursday night and you can read it here.

It’s worth a look.
