Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to invite Hank Aaron, Paul Molitor and Harmon Killebrew to a party at your house? The stars came..and they were duly impressed with one fan’s phenomenal private collection of baseball memorabilia.
Wine lovers in Naples, Florida use their annual Winter Festival to raise tons of money for children’s charities. There are fancy parties, auctions of expensive bottles and plenty of limosines.
This year, though, one party was held at the home of a big-time sports memorabilia collector and it’s baseball theme was a more down-to-earth big hit. Don Gunther got to show his collection off to the likes of Hank Aaron, Harmon Killebrew, Paul Molitor, Tony Oliva and Roy Smalley (hmm..we sense a Twins connection?).
All came to sign a few autographs and help raise money for the kids in south Florida. Story complete with video and photos.
