Conrad Brunner, who spent decades covering Indiana sports for the Indianapolis Star and hosted a radio sports talk show in the city, has a new job.
He’s the owner of a new vintage-oriented sports card and memorabilia shop in suburban Noblesville.
A long-time collector, Brunner had been setting up at shows in the area but has now expanded into a brick-and-mortar business called Bruno’s Shoebox.
Not ready to retire despite his long career in journalism, Brunner says he was also inspired by the life of Brody Stephens, an Indiana boy who died of cancer last spring at age 8. Brody was a huge sports fan whose battle drew the attention of numerous teams and athletes including Steph Curry.
