Another heartwarming story about an old man who collects Matchbooks
Bob Pitcher is a 80 years old man, and he collects Matchbooks for a half century...
A nice story from the Tampa Bay Times: Bob Pitcher - Matchbooks collector
His living room shelves sagged from the weight of the albums of the matchbooks — 100 albums or so, each containing about 600 matchbooks. Sixty thousand matchbooks out of the past.
I liked his words at the end of the article: "We collect for a lot of reasons. Perhaps collecting is a way to stay in touch with our youth. But maybe it's something more. A collection is proof that we were here."
