He had one of the best collections of Cleveland Browns memorabilia around, but it was time for one of the team’s biggest fans to say goodbye to his stuff.
It took about 40 years for Dominic Ruggiero to amass hundreds of Cleveland Browns memories and a couple of hours for them to be sold.
The Ohio man lost his job and went through a divorce and the resulting bills got to be a bit much. His house even went in an auction coducted Saturday. It’s a scenario other collectors have experienced, but it’s not easy.
Before the sale, he took time to visit with WKYC-TV and show off the furnishings of his "Browns room".
