Fight over autographed baseballs leaves Pogofsky family battered

This story from the Chicago Tribune illustrates what can happen when an estate contains an unusual, valuable item such as a collection of autographed baseballs. In this case, the autographs were collected over 30 years and included those of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. The owner of the collection passed away, and now his children are fighting - in court - over who should get the baseballs. My heart goes out to this family, who will likely never really recover from this fight. If only the father had given clear instructions in his will for his collection. Perhaps, like millions of other parents, he felt that the kids would "work it out" without a problem. Click here to read this story.
