The Steelerchief, near Mt. Ranier, Washington!


The Steelerchief


       Student Days
My graduation picture, 1979

My family spans five generations in Pittsburgh, and most of my relatives still live there. I was born in McKees Rocks, PA, in 1961, and I have been a Black & Gold fan all my life. To see photos of Pittsburgh, click here!

I have served for more than 26 years, and I'm currently stationed in Portsmouth, Virginia.

I started this hobby for a couple of reasons. First, I received more than 80 autographs of players, generally from the late 1940ís and early 1950ís. (Please visit my Old Timers page!). 
Second, I realized I had a ton of old Steeler, Pirate, and Penguin sports cards and I needed to do something with them. I got started with the Maulers & Condors later. So, I decided to start sending off my cards to see if players would sign them. I did not realize what a popular hobby this was.  It is now a thrill to be able to look in the mailbox in hope of finding something other than bills! My family supports me in this hobby and I really have a great time sending out cards. It is relatively inexpensive as well.
