Father’s Day weekend is always good for a few ‘feel good’ stories about fathers, baseball cards and autographs.
We’ve found more than a couple of good ones.
There’s nothing better than finding a big box of old baseball cards at a flea market–especially when you’ve just priced modern cards at the store.
Even if the box isn’t full of Mickey Mantle rookies, it’s a great way to rekindle some great memories from your days as a young collector with a quarter and a taste for bubble gum. Kansas City area columnist Gene Morris was fired up when he recently found such a box.
Meanwhile, Adam Buckley Cohen of the New York Times offered readers a powerful piece as he connects with his two sports-loving young sons through his old card collection, hoping to soften the blow of a painful divorce.
