Scott Finch’s home may be nearly 120 miles from Busch Stadium in St. Louis, but the minute you step foot in his basement, you feel the same excitement as you would if you were sitting right being home plate. That is because Finch has spent the last two decades collecting all things St. Louis Cardinals.
“I search, EBay is my favorite friend.” jokes Finch
This third generation Cardinals fan collects everything, from bobbleheads to game used jerseys. In addition, he also collects local sports memorabilia including the former Decatur Commodores team. The only thing you won’t find in his collection is anything from Chicago’s north-siders.
“I was never drawn to the evil blue team, that was a forbidden team. We couldn’t speak of the Cubs in my house.” says Finch
While his collection is not open to the public, Scott enjoys getting to show it off to friends and family.
