A few years ago when I regularly contributed to Sports Collectors Daily, I interviewed Ryan Anderson of Crown Sports Auctions for an article I was writing about his auction house. Ryan was great to work with and expressed an interest in helping bat collectors fill holes in their collections. Well, Ryan lived up to his words. A few weeks after I started this blog, I received a phone call from Ryan. He had seen 83 Bats and asked if I had a Diaz bat yet because he had one to give me. Thank you Ryan, the Bo Diaz bat reduced my want list by one, but more importantly it is a reminder that friendships are the most important part of this hobby.
12 bats down 71 to go.
