Sharks Collector’s Amazing Collection Gets Special Visitor By Rich Mueller

It only took one game for Steve Cropper to get hooked on hockey.  That first trip to watch the San Jose Sharks launched one of the best team-oriented NHL autograph and memorabilia collections you’ll see.
Cropper lives in the Sacramento area, not exactly across the street from the Sharks’ home ice, but he’s a regular at the games.
His collection includes a signed puck from all but four players who have seen action for the franchise since the first season in 1991-92.
Monday was a special one for Cropper, who has been dealing with a benign brain tumor.  KXTV was there to show off the collection in one newscast—and the visit from Cropper’s favorite player in another.
