Jeff Kunerth loves the thrill of the hunt. He has rummaged through antique shops model railroad stores miniature shops and ebay to find many of the items in his News collection. He compared finding a new item to the feeling a 49er might have felt when he discovers a rare golden nugget.
The collection used to reside throughout the house but when his sons moved away to college his wife insisted that he consolidate the collection so he moved everything into his sons room. Every square inch of every shelf and wall is covered with newspaper memorabilia.
In the sketch you can see some of his news paperboy figures. He even has a GI Joe war corespondent complete with a typewriter. Some of his hand crafted newsstands can also be seen. There is the "Seuss News" with the Cat in the Hat selling papers, Goofy is selling papers in the "Toon News". In the "Bear Country News" newsstand a bear sell honey along with the news. Each stand has an amazing level of detail that can only be appreciated when you hold the box and truly peer inside. He has a magnifying glass on the shelf with the newsstands in case you want to read all the headlines. And trust me all the headlines tie in to the given newsstand theme.
