Alan Rosen was in suburban Detroit July 14, on a buying trip in association with the show in Gibraltar, but things didn’t start too well. Rosen first was offered a set of signed Perez-Steele Hall of Fame plaques; no deal was made. The second item offered also turned into a no-sale when the collector rejected Rosen’s offer. Finally, Rosen was presented a complete set of 1964 Topps giant cards in “fabulous condition,” Rosen noted. He offered $3,750 and the seller agreed. Then came the gold-mine of baseball memorabilia. The collector told Rosen to follow him into the basement, and what Rosen saw literally left him speechless. “It was some of the coolest stuff I’ve ever seen,” Rosen said.

sportscollectorsdigest.com
I really have to guard against sounding like an old fogey when I write about the hobby in general and the game of baseball in particular, which, when you think about it, is probably a pretty tough assignment for a guy working in the nostalgia field. What got me to thinking about this stuff was the broadcast of the HBO film “Mantle,” which is being aired this summer as part of the observance of the 10th anniversary of Mickey Mantle’s death on Aug. 13, 1995. The hobby has changed a whole bunch since that day, but Mantle’s lofty perch as perhaps the most beloved sports figure of postwar America hasn’t budged a bit.
