He Collects Barry Bonds (Really)

If you’ve been to a big card show and seen a guy looking for anything and everything Barry Bonds, this might be him. And no, he doesn’t live in San Francisco.

Kevin Fern owns a boatload of Bonds cards, autographs and other memorabilia. It’s a passion that began 14 years ago, long before the steroid talk got serious. He’s spent well into five figures to bolster his collection, which continues to grow.

He’s one guy who thinks the negativity toward the potential new home run king is being overdone, especially after a chat with the aging slugger.
