Minor League GM is Major League SI Collector

Signed Sports Illustrated covers keep one Gary, IN collector busy.

Like most who work in pro sports, Roger Wexelberg appreciates the history of the games.

He’s the General Manager of the Gary (IN) Railcats, an independent minor league team. He’s also a serious collector of Sports Illustrated magazines and has made it a quest to have the cover subjects autograph them whenever he can.

"I’m not an autograph hound," said Wexelberg, who has worked in minor league baseball since 1984. "It isn’t so much I get my jollies out of the autographs. It’s more the challenge of getting it and collecting something that no one else has or that’s unique."
