Being a collector of sports memorabilia and comic books, I was constantly searching for new stores that carried these items. Along with Robin Tempas, we decided to do a monthly magazine that would inform other collectors about what was going on in the Colorado area. Hence, “I Collect” was born. At first we charged for the magazine, but after just three issues we were able to provide the information for free.

Doing a monthly magazine meant we needed to attend all the comic and card shows. Go to sporting events and games so we would have first hand information. Robin’s expertise in desk top publishing, made this project possible. It was great fun meeting everyone in the sports business and the magazine opened up a lot of doors.
