It's hard to believe that there wasn't a store like this already in historic Cooperstown, NY. To say it is necessary is an understatement. Finally, Main Street in Cooperstown will get its very own trading card store. It will be called "Topps by Dave & Adams".
My love of sports came from my dad. He was an avid baseball fan who spent much of his childhood at the Polo Grounds rooting for his beloved New York Giants, before they moved to San Francisco in 1957. In 1962, I wasn’t even born yet as the last of 6 kids, the Mets moved to town and the members of my household from that moment on rooted for the Amazin’s.
It is a long time coming for Yankee fans. Finally "The Captain" Derek Jeter will be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown today. For me, Derek Jeter will always be the best Yankee that ever played the game. I was fortunate six years ago to meet Derek Jeter and ask him a couple of questions. I even made "The Captain" laugh.
The moment New York Yankees fans have been waiting for might take a little longer. Yankee Captain Derek Jeter's Baseball Hall of Fame induction is currently scheduled for this summer but the prevailing wisdom is Jeter and his fans will have to wait until 2021.
