This amazing collection of 30,000 autographs was obtained in person by one of the pioneering autograph hounds, Steve Kostrubanic. This Cleveland-area native wandered outside the theaters and sports venues of Cleveland searching for celebrities from the late 1940s right up to the early 2000s. He was fluent in all areas of popular culture including baseball, football, boxing, sports, rock ‘n’ roll, music, cinema, theater, television and more. His later job as Senator Jacob Javitz’s personal driver gave him even greater access to the rich and famous. A Golden Gloves Boxing Champion, he is a member of the Ohio State Boxing Hall of Fame.
