Barron's/Penta panel on collecting including me...

Richard Morais from Barron's magazine invited me to participate in a panel on collecting which was held at Bonham's auction house last Wednesday, January 29th. Richard's journalistic professionalism and thoroughness was a treat (and a rarity these days). It was a pleasure to be a part of the process as well as the final event. A link to his blog about the event is here and includes a short video of each of us on the panel talking about a detail of collecting. Its an especially germane topic with PGH Photo 3 just around the corner! Pittsburgh collectors, please take a look.....
