#Bone Collector - Bonners Ferry Indiana #Collecting

The Bone Collector - Bonners Ferry Herald : Local:

"When most 10-year-olds were collecting baseball cards, toy trucks and action figures, Nate Hart, 35, collected bones.

“The more I spend time doing this, the more I learn,” said Hart. “Bones are my love that I pursue on my own.”

With hundreds of skulls and numerous skeletons in his arsenal, Hart had to narrow down what he brought to the Kootenai Wildlife Refuge education barn when he presented a program for the Friends of the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge last week."

Collecting "Stranger’s Guides" >> Book Collectors News & comic book murder

AE Monthly - the Magazine for Book Collectors & Booksellers
Ten years ago, David Gerstel of Montreal, Canada, a long time collector of travels and voyages, searching for a less costly collecting opportunity began to collect AmericanStranger’s Guides, books published mainly in the 19th century to help itinerants understand cities they would visit. These are intensely local directories, often with maps, always with advertisements, listing essential details for the newly arrived.

A dozen years later David is moving on, ... [s]elling what he has collected now becomes the challenge.

To do this he has enlisted the help of Bernie [Bernhard] Lauser of Voyager Press Rare Books & Manuscripts in Vancouver. Bernie is an interesting choice as he is one of the few dealers who represent sellers wanting to sell thematic collections as well as archives.

Collecting Phish #Posters >> New York show gets a deluge - Need We Say More? > Features > Pollock and The Poster People: From The _Coventry Courier_:

"While special 'event posters' are nothing new to the Phish scene, the skyrocketing hype surrounding themboth at the show and in the later re-sale marketis a post-hiatus phenomenon. The situation has caused many tense scenes at the point of sale of posters before shows, and created a new fetish item among fans with a long history of obsessively cataloging the Phish experience. Accordingly, a whole new community has sprung up among the 'poster people', to stand as yet another subgenre within the world of Phish fans."

MLB #Baseball card #Collector: Don Mattingly + Roberto Clemente card & MORE 1984 Topps cards

MLB collector: Roberto Clemente card tops my baseball card collection - MLB - Yahoo! Sports:

"Don Mattingly is and will always be my favorite player of all time. I didn't start collecting cards until around 1988, so this card came out before then, but once I was old enough, one of the first cards I bought on its own was Mattingly's 1984 Topps rookie card. It is stored in a Snap-Tite case, and is valued at just over $10."
