Selling The Merch Collector’s Corner
This feature will now have a piece called Collector’s Corner, in which I shine a spotlight on someone who collects Pro Wrestling items. I thought the first Collector’s Corner should feature the founder of Fightful.com, Jimmy Van. In 2019, Sean Ross Sapp took a stroll through Jimmy Van's LJN collection, likely the most complete in the world. Jimmy has since added an INFAMOUS Elizabeth figure.
