Dennis Schrader got his first autographed ball from Mickey Mantle at age 9. Now, the Florida man has over 1800 of them…and quite a story to tell. We’ve got it–and a video tour of his collection.
He retired a wealthy man thanks to years building and selling mobile homes. He’s foiled an attempted robbery at his home and lives to collect sports memorabilia–especially autographed baseballs.
Dennis Schrader has over 1800 of them–up a a few hundred from the last time we checked in in September. He showed off his collection–inside a vault–to WFLA-TV in Tampa-St. Pete.
But are they all authentic? Watch the video and tell us what you think.
The security in Schrader’s home is understandable once you know who he is –and what he went through before moving to his current home.
