Sports Collecting a Passion for Gophers Announcer

Dick Joncowski just wrapped up another season as the familiar public address announcer at Williams Arena.  Now, he can spend every night working on his collection.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers’ basketball voice is also well known in sports collecting circles as the guy who buys it all.

Basketball, baseball and football…you’ll find all of it in the basement of his home in the Twin Cities’ suburb of Shakopee.

There are the kitschy bobble heads and figurines, but also some nice autographs and game-used stuff too.
