Giant Collector: Museum Digs Baseball Memorabilia

A former Giant was on hand as a Northern California museum opened an exhibit of team history–populated by items on loan from a big time collector.

What fun is a collection of game used memorabilia, old programs, baseball cards and other cool stuff if you’re the only one who sees it?

Richard Macaluso, a resident of El Dorado Hills, not far from Sacramento, is a Giants fan with a huge stock of things he’s collected over the years. The Folsom Telegraph reports that a nearby museum took advantage of the offer Macaluso made to let it become the focal point of a new exhibit.

On hand for the launch–autograph pen in hand–was a former Giants’ pitcher.
