Nestled in what use to be a bank in Collingwood, New Jersey, sports fans can find a family sports collection valued at $30 million. The treasure trove at DePace Museum will finally, officially open to the public at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 12.
To help cut the ribbon during the grand opening ceremony, several former Flyers players are expected to be on hand, including Hockey Hall of Famer Bernie Parent, Bob Kelly, Brian Propp and Dave Schultz.
After the ribbon cutting, guests will be able to visit the museum on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from noon to 5 p.m. and on Thursdays through Saturdays from noon to 9 p.m.
The collection that awaits visitors is full of rare and one-of-a-kind items from baseball, football, basketball, hockey, boxing and track & field.
