Default Geddy Lee's Collection Room -- w/ pictures & video

I'm a big fan of the band Rush, and was recently checking out their
new documentary "Beyond the Lighted Stage". On the extra features
disc, they made a short video focusing on the band's hobbies. Geddy
Lee, the singer, bassist, & keyboardist for the band, has been a fan of
baseball for some time, and has amassed a very nice collection.

Here are a few larger snapshots from the piece, and at the bottom of
this post you'll find a link to the YouTube video. We should all have
collection rooms like this!

Here's a shot of some of Geddy's Yankees memorabilia, including single-
signed balls of Gehrig and Ruth, and what looks to be a game used cap,
perhaps Gehrig or Ruth as well.




Next up is Geddy holding a Joe Jackson bat. In the video, Geddy claims
that this is 1 of 2 known bats believed to have belonged to Shoeless Joe.

I'm not sure about the validity of that claim -- do any Shoeless Joe
collectors know if this is indeed true?




A quick shot of Geddy in front of his signed baseball display case...



And an interior closeup view, including his Mathewson signed ball....



And, finally, here's the YouTube vid...

(Scroll forward to 2:50 for the baseball part)

If that Matty ball is real that's one heck of a signature!

I never knew that Geddy was such a collector. I'll be seeing them next Sunday here in St. Louis. Looking forward to it of course.
