Danny Black, Baltimore Sports Collectables (@sportsbalt)
Born in Baltimore, Maryland I have been a local sports fan from birth. I have always loved sports and sports collecting, and started my first card business in the early 1990's. I worked local card shows for years and enjoyed building my collection and collaborating with other people who loved the hobby. After a major theft left me without most of my collection and inventory, I stopped work as a dealer, and moved on to a role in the business side of professional sports.
In the late 90’s I worked for The Atlanta Braves, and got to experience some history first hand, when Turner Field had its inaugural Opening Day. A few years later, after a move back home to Baltimore, I went to work for the Orioles. I was lucky enough to manage the World's Largest Sports Art Gallery which gave me the chance to work with some fantastic athletes, artists, and collectors.
Moving on professionally led me out of the sports world and on to years of building a reputation and a family. During this time I enjoyed several pet projects of personal collecting in The Hobby and started sharing it with my kids. The more I got back into it, the more opportunities arose, as old connections reached out, and new referrals requested advice. I realized I had missed the work of The Hobby, and once I started, couldn't resist returning to it professionally.
A new venture was launched, Baltimore Sports Collectibles LLC., which is the culmination of a lifetime of learning and a deep love of sports. After over 30 years collecting, researching, and studying the world of cards and collectibles, it is a pleasure to share my knowledge with others. Below is a selection of some of the games and events that I have attended or worked.
