Teenage Baseball Memorabilia Collector Loves It

Justin Topa of Hillcrest, New York owns 6,000 autographs and 100,000 baseball cards. Now he’s getting to meet one of the more famous players in his collection.

Most kids spent Wednesday in school. Justin Topa was on an airplane, heading for Florida to meet New York Yankees’ shortstop Derek Jeter.

The 15 year-old baseball fanatic was the grand prize winner in Upper Deck’s recent essay contest.

He’s no casual fan either. He and his Dad have a big-time collection of cards and memorabilia.
