Welcome to Dugout Treasures

Welcome to the virtual home of a collection that is now 30+ years in the making. The contents of this collection include equipment, memorabilia, and ephemera that span over 100 years of baseball history and include relics from the National Pastime’s infancy in the 19 th Century thru its Golden Era of the 1950s.

Aside from my collecting interests, I am passionate about researching and sharing information about the game's rich and complex history. As a member of SABR's 19th Century Research Committee, I am constantly exploring aspects of the game’s early years, and as a docent with the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center, am interested in the Pastime’s evolution into the mid-20 th Century.

I hope you find your visit to the various pages of the 'Dugout' enjoyable and informative. As a collector and researcher there is nothing more rewarding that having a fellow enthusiast reach out to converse about a piece of memorabilia or a historical factoid. Should something during your visit here raise a question, comment, memory, or suggestion, please use the contact link to get in touch.
