Default 07' National Story Posted on SportsAntiques.com

Posted By: CarltonHendricks

http://www.sportsantiques.com/2007NATIONAL/07natstory1.htm
Dear friends,
Please know, along with my previously posted 9 pages of photos, I have now posted my 4 page written account of the 28th annual 2007 National Sports Collectors Convention on my website SportsAntiques.com. Please click the link above to go to it.

My 07’ National story features details of my pre-convention trip to Philadelphia and Adamstown PA. along with many photos of the sights I saw.

There are six sub photo pages linked from page one. Of these six pages, five are of Philadelphia and one is of Adamstown. Included are:

1. Boathouse Row
2. Kelly Drive
3. Frederic Remington “Cowboy“ statue
4. the Washington Monument
5. Constitution Square
6. Adamstown

There are also six more sub photo pages of dealers booths throughout the story, making a total of 12 sub photo pages.

What took so long you ask? It’s enormous work, and there’s no monetary incentive. I probably need to pursue sponsorship for future National stories so I would be accountable to a deadline, though probably too late for 08‘. I believe my National stories timeless, as my page views prove. This is my fifth National coverage, and at this point I feel a stewardship to maintaining a record of them for everyone. Thanks to the internet, my coverage is available perpetually 24/7 anywhere in the world.

I have added a special bonus to this years story, I visited John Gennantonio in Cincinnati after the National and took photos of his collection. I’ve posted them on their own separate page which is located at the end.

Enjoy the show!
-Carlton

Thanks so much for posting, Carlton! I wasn't able to be at the National last year, so the writeup and photos were invaluable. Thanks for the very thorough recap!

I almost wish you did not post pictures of John's collection, though... felt kinda sick to my stomach afterwards. I don't think I have ever been as envious in my life. Boy, he has some amazing stuff... a lot of that turn of the century equipment looks to be unused. Must be one-of-a-kind, in that fine condition. Thanks again!

I feel your pain Mark. Some truly amazing stuff. Trophy balls, lemon peel balls, ring bats, workman gloves, even a fingerless glove! The 19th C. belts really did it for me though. As did the pristine catchers equipment. I have to stop.

Exactly... a mind-blowing collection! Even if you have unlimited money, how do you even locate all of this (much less in pristine unused condition??)

John must have some unbelievable contacts, and lots of friends in very high places!

Hey thanks everyone, I'm glad you're enjoying it, that's why I put it up. Yes John is a veteran in the collecting war, he doesn't waste a lot of bullets. I think he's very selective and waits for the right stuff to surface. Enjoy the story -Carlton

Thanks for the great writeup. I have never been to a National, and it was really great to see the kind of top notch stuff that shows up there. I will definitely have to make it to one someday. You can tell how much effort you put into your writeup, and it was a great read, Thanks

Great article Carlton! Thanks for taking the time to post it. While I've been pretty quiet doing the sports memorabilia stuff lately, it was refreshing to see such a nice piece of work. It makes you feel like you're there. Adamstown is a great place, isn't it? While I think I've found 1 item there in thirty years specific for my couple of hobbies, it's always great to see such a nice array of different stuff there.

Greg
