In 1959 I started saving newspapers that had Yankees on the covers, and in 1969 I started a quest to get every major athletes autograph. I started with the NY Jets getting Joe Namath and branched out to getting my idol Mickey Mantle in the Yankee locker room, and trading pictures with his agent Roy True, to Muhammad Ali, who I became friends with and did a TNT SPECIAL with.
