National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

Today, my wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Richard Root and his wife (see his posting below).

They often vacation in Texas and, by way of selling some of his NG inventory, came to pass through the Houston area where we live.

I have met in person others on this forum, like Tom Wilson, and it has always been a pleasure.

How often do we get to engage others in our passion face to face?

I hope to meet others, especially those with whom I communicate often: Phil, Scott, Mike and Dale this includes you guys.

Thanks to the National Geographic Society for providing this forum and especially Cathy Hunter for her oversight.
