The Sports Artifacts Web Site Tutorial
For me the aesthetic appeal of vintage sports memorabilia can be as pleasing as a piece of fine art. For me it is also social anthropology, history and a common bond between people with often different backgrounds.
I enjoy searching the country for fine examples of vintage sports artifacts and memorabilia. Personally I believe these pieces are ideally suited for display, whether at home, the office, a sports themed restaurant or a museum.
I am a sports historian by hobby so it's enjoyable for me to know the history of what is offered. It is also important to me to carefully represent the condition and character of each piece. Thousands of detailed photos are available throughout the site.
