SD Historical Society Gets Big Baseball Donation

March 28, 2014, 7:52 AM


A South Dakota native has donated his extensive collection of Northern League baseball memorabilia to the State Historical Society.

Paul Gertsen was raised in Aberdeen and graduated from high school in Huron. He has worked for both the St. Paul Saints and the Minnesota Moose, and currently works for the city of St. Paul, Minn.

Gertsen says he started collecting baseball cards in 1971, the year he saw his first Aberdeen Pheasants game. He's been collecting Northern League memorabilia for three decades.

Gertsen says he wanted to donate his collection to an institution that would keep it intact and make it available for display and research.

Items from the collection will be featured prominently in an exhibit opening Oct. 24 tentatively called "Play Ball! The National Pastime in South Dakota."
