"Besides being an artist, I also collect stamps, coins, anything related to the Boy Scouts (patches, etc.), books, and sports memorabilia. I was at an auction in Brinkley, Arkansas, once and bought some baseballs to go with my baseball pictures. When I got them home and was looking at them, I saw Hank Aaron's signature on one. I did a little research and found out that it was one of the 200 balls Hank Aaron signed as a promotional when he hit his 715th home run. I just happened to get one of them."
