his inaugural post of #SportsHistoryBlog is an exciting new project for me personally, I’ve never taken an Editorial approach but I love to talk about this stuff with like-minded people. I want to share what I love about Sports and what certain things mean from my personal perspective.
My father and I were concerned about our vast collection of Sports Programs, Media Guides, Pennants, Magazines, Tickets, jerseys etc. stashed away in our garages and attics. “What if either of us were to pass away and our significant others tossed it all in a recycling bin? ” We’d talked for years about selling these treasures and ensuring every item found a good home.
In 2017, we created SportsHistoryCollectibles.com. It has been quite an undertaking, more a labor of love as I’ve enjoyed re-living all of our sports memories. We have Baseball and Football items going back 70-80 years. Early NBA Programs, lots of Hockey items too. Our Soccer inventory is arguably the best of it’s kind, there isn’t anything like it out there.
We library these items and strive to be a resource for North American media coverage of leagues and eras you can’t find anywhere else. Browse the articles—even if you aren’t looking to buy. Long after it is sold fans and historians can reference our documented history. You’ll notice how we photograph each item—way more than just an eBay cover shot—you can actually read the stories and re-live the events.
I look forward to sharing with fans and historians and getting your feedback. Please be sure to Subscribe and share these posts with like-minded sportsaholics.

|My father (David Mitchell) and I shown here on a Tijuana Xolos road trip to Guadalajara. The Xolos beat Chivas 2-0 that day and these 2 Gringos were on MedioTiempo.com’s Home Page.
Dad and I at a Timbers USL Game in 2009. It left a big impression on us. The USL Timbers and the Timbers Army supporters were more interesting than anything we’d ever seen before. Of course, the Timbers are in MLS now and they are definitely my favorite MLS team.
