The fine folks at “The Only Colors” have invited me to write a Spartan Sports Memorabilia column. Why me? I don’t claim to have the largest collection outside of the MSU Archives. I don’t claim to be the most knowledgeable on the history of Spartan athletics. I am, however, an old-school, life-long, native son of East Lansing, who was raised on Michigan State Spartans sports and became a pack rat of a collector along the way.
I love Coach Mark Dantonio and I hate neon jerseys. I have passion, perspective, and appreciation of the great history of Michigan State University.
