The Malvern, Pennsylvania, resident started the hobby when he was younger and, over 35 years, has accumulated thousands of signatures, many from Hall of Fame athletes. Camp added to his impressive collection Saturday at the 42nd National Sports Collectors Convention at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
