Nick Vitucci's basement museum (nostalgia/memorabilia galore!)

This video was posted in a thread in the main board, but I think it really belongs here.

It's a little on the long side, so you might skip to around 5:00 to skip the extensive puck collection and get right to the most nostalgic displays.

I think it's fair to say the old-timers on the forum will find a few memories stirred up by this one He calls it a "man cave", but it's more like a museum and tribute to hockey at all levels over the past 50 or 60 years.

Also, in case the name doesn't ring a bell -- Nick Vitucci is an historically significant minor-leaguer in his own right. He is the ECHL's career goaltending leader in GP and wins, and won 4 championships in that league. Until tonight, he was the only goaltender in history to be credited with a goal on a guarded net (and I might be the only person to have witnessed both such goals in person ). It would seem that he spent a good deal of his career collecting memorabilia from all across the minor-league circuit.

Clearly a guy who loves and appreciates the history and life of the game.
