Sports collector shut out in lawsuit against police - St. Catharines Standard, Niagara Region, Sun Media - Ontario, CA:

"An avid collector of sports memorabilia who claimed police stole more than $680,000 in rare hockey cards during a raid at his St. Catharines home didn't score any points in civil court."

Among the cards Glode alleged missing in a lawsuit were six Wayne Gretzky rookie cards, four Mario Lemieux rookie cards and eight Patrick Roy rookie cards, two of which were signed.
"His theory that the items not returned to him somehow ended up in the hands of the defendants has no evidence to support it and is not credible," Maddalena wrote in a decision this week.

Glode sought $808,000 for the cards and other items he claimed were seized and not returned, such as signed hockey jerseys, masks and pucks. He also asked for $1 million in damages for malicious prosecution, negligence, trespass and conversion of property, and $1 million in punitive damages.
He launched a lawsuit in April 2005. The trial was held over seven days in December 2010 in Welland. The case dates back to October 2003, when Glode was arrested in Pennsylvania and charged with possessing 26.6 pounds of marijuana in the two spare tires of his rented SUV.

Alameda Sun - Revolutions per Minute: 45 Record Cover Collection:
"Duane Tom began collecting 45-rpm records in the 1970s. In those pre-MTV days, the record sleeve was often the first time you got to see what the artist looked like! This is an exhibition of record covers with the bands and musical personalities from the late '50s to the 1990s."

"Now it was possible to see and purchase sleeves you had only heard about, or saw listed in a record price guide. With that, my collection took off and has been a source of countless hours of enjoyment," Tom said. Come enjoy Tom's collection at the Pacific Pinball Museum, 1510 Webster St. from June 10 to July 5. An opening reception will be held Friday, June 10, from 6 p.m. to midnight with a no-host bar and free flipper finger food. $10 will allow you to play pinball all night.

Tipped-in photo book collection: Books as art in the Oley Valley |

Margaret Armstrong, a popular and collectible designer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, designed the publisher's binding (cover) of this book titled "The Old Gentleman of the Black Stock" by Thomas Nelson Page, published in 1900. The book bears Armstrong's initials, M.A., on the bottom of the design.

"The photo-illustrated books in which she deals include original photographs that have been attached to the surface of the page, referred to as tipped in as opposed to being printed on the page. Pendleton said while images from photographs were mechanically reproduced in the 19th century and into modern times by publishers to save money and accommodate larger print runs, private press or small publishers continued to issue books with original photos. However, these books are scarce due to small print runs."
Other subject areas in her inventory include books relating to the cultural aspects of early Pennsylvania history, local German imprints and literary first editions.

"My medical collection is pretty awesome at the moment," she said, referring to a collection of books dating to the 16th century that had come to her from two avid collectors. "They came to me from a husband who collected medical books and his wife who collected Victorian women's literature."
