Is your sports collection public or private? Barry Halper

Some people are introverts, while others are extroverts.  Introverts keep to themselves and the extroverts are the opposite.  Have you ever been to a magic show in Las Vegas and been asked for an audience volunteer?  The person who jumps on stage to help out the magician perform his illusion is the extrovert.  The same can be said for sports memorabilia collectors. 

The introverts unassumingly can amass a large collection without anybody knowing.  This person’s spouse is always aware to the collection, but never really knows the amount of money spent on the collection.  If the spouse knew how much money was spent on the collection, he/she would probably ask for a divorce.  The majority of the Sports Memorabilia collection is housed in safety deposit boxes across numerous banks.  This is where the best and most vaulable baseball cards, bats, & autographs are stored.  Nobody ever gets to see the collection, except for the owner when he stops by the safety deposit box twice a year.  Many people can not understand why such a fantastic collection would be kept in private.  It usually has nothing to do with security, it usually has everything to do with the owner being a private person without an ego.

The extroverts are somewhat different than the introverts.  These owners’ “show-off” the collection, and throw dinner parties quite often for everybody to see the newest piece in the collection.  This sports collection might have more pieces than the introverts, and it is probably worth alot less than the introverts.  Everybody in town knows about the collection.  Mr. Owner gets asked all the time about it while taking the dog for a walk, or coaching little league baseball.  Nothing is held in safety deposit boxes.  The collection is equally spread across most of the rooms in the house, which makes for a great tour.  

Besides the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, Barry Halper’s Yankee and Sports Memorabilia Collection is one of the most famous public collections.  Not that many people saw his collection before his untimely death in 2005. Barry was a partner in the New York Yankees which gave him with unparalleled access to celebrities and athletes on a daily basis.  Mr. Halper’s collection would have been a dream to see.  Email me if  you were one of the few to see Mr. Halper’s collection.  I would love to talk about it.
