However, I have found that if you can diversify your collection with some unique or rare items, not only does that add value to your collection, it will usually generate a conversation with the athlete/celebrity and you will have a more memorable interaction with that person.
Some simple, but sometimes expensive ideas are game used items such as bases, stadium seats, and stadium seat backs. There just aren't many of these around and these items have just become accessible to the regular fan, such as me.
