This gentleman just died, leaving no immediate family and an apparently fabulous collection of Brooklyn Dodger memorabilia. Apparently, he knew more about the Brooklyn Dodgers than anybody. I never heard of him. Has anybody? Did he post on this forum? Attached is his obit.

Sadly, I've never heard of him. Maybe Connye knew of him. If he posted here, I never knew ..................

Now the next question is how can we find out what will be happening to Mr. Knight's Brooklyn Dodger memorabilia? Pete, do you have room for any more? Shouldn't these artifacts be adopted by some of the members of this forum? My books have barely left me enough room to get into and out of my house, so I am out.

I would MAKE room for some of his stuff! I'm not at all certain if his memorabilia will be made available for individual collectors. Usually something this vast is donated to a museum or to a school. Could the Dodgers be interested? My books, model trains, and baseball artifacts now fill my home like the TV show "Hoarders."
