JAPANESE FILM CREW TAPES THE COLLECTION
McFarlane Collection Part of Special Japanese TV Show
December 29, 2000
Recently, a crew from Japan's NHK TV completed a series of visits with the McFarlane Collection for a show called The Greatest Auctions and the Treasures of the World.
After a couple logistical difficulties were ironed out, the crew met up with the Collection during a tour stop in Austin, Texas. They filmed the exhibit itself, several of the balls individually (particularly McGwire's No. 70 ball, as you might well imagine) and also fans viewing the exhibit.
The crew hooked up with Todd himself in Los Angeles and got an interview to go along with all the baseball footage.
The program is a special two-hour series finale set to air in a "high vision" format to Japanese satellite customers in February.
