Today I'd like to turn the spotlight on fellow SportsCardForum Hockey Moderator Richard and his Josh Gorges Super Collection. He is a collector that puts a lot of pride into his collection and the hobby at large and I'm glad to have the opportunity to showcase his collection with you all today! No matter their player's impact on the game, dedicated player collectors are a different breed of collectors that I really appreciate.... and totally understand.
After connecting with Andrew on the Blowout Cards forums, I just knew he'd be a great feature here on the blog. Andrew has been player collecting for many years and definitely has the 'resume' to prove it with many player collections currently on the go across all the major sports. Today, we're got a show fit for a king. Well, one King that is: Anze Kopitar
Andrew's collection of LA Kings Captain Anze Kopitar is stunning is every way possible. His collection of high-end Kopitar pieces will knock your socks off. I'll let Andrew speak for himself on this one:
I've always liked hearing about why collectors collect who they do. I find it interesting how the spark for a certain player or team can develop from many different places. In Jon's case, as he will explain below, a once in a lifetime encounter with Justin Faulk sparked a card collection that he still continues to this day.
I hope you all enjoy Collectors Corner #14:
