In previous blogs, I have written about a local sports collector named Greg Henderson. On my ebay store, I have helped Greg sell some of his collection of sports memorabilia from legends such as Muhammad Ali and Arnold Palmer. In the past few days, Greg has dropped off a number of sports collectibles related to local Rhode Island boxing legend, Vinnie “The Paz” Pazienza. Pazienza is the subject of a national film release called “Bleed For This” which comes out in movies theaters this week. From the massive press coverage locally and on national TV shows, this film looks to shine a bright light on the incredible career and heart of one of Rhode Island’s most famous athletes. Best wishes to the Rhode Island production company staff and anyone involved in this film.
This collection is just a small sample of Greg’s entire Vinnie Pazienza collection, which includes some personalized autographs. The collection includes magazines, Providence Journal newspapers from the 1992 and 1993 years covering the fights of Vinnie Paz, and a collectible T-Shirt. The items are on auction on my ebay store, The NK Marketing Store. Here is a breakdown of the items we have available for sale through ebay:

The RIBBE is The Rhode Island Baseball Experience. It is promoting the game of baseball here in the great state of Rhode Island for the entire baseball world to see. The RIBBE is positive stories, photos, videos, and responsible social media posts. The RIBBE is an information resource for families looking for an AAU team or a summer camp or a great place to buy a first baseman’s mitt. The RIBBE is a network of coaches, tournament directors, parents, leagues, and baseball junkies whose passion of the game of baseball is unquestioned. I believe that providing expert analysis, information and directions to ballfields, and coaching advice from some of the top RI baseball minds will help promote the game of baseball here in RI to a whole new level.
