All in the family

For many attendees, a Roadshow visit provides an opportunity to piece together fragments of family history or to create a narrative to pass on to their kids and grandchildren. Judd Groza traveled from Columbus, Ohio, with a collection of his father's football memorabilia. His dad, Lou "the Toe" Groza, was a left tackle and field-goal kicker for the Cleveland Browns and was instrumental in the Browns' 1950 National Football Championship win over the Los Angeles Rams. Groza brought his late father's championship ring, jacket and other items to be appraised for insurance purposes. He was selected as one of about 50 participants to be filmed for the TV show. Groza's collection, which he loaned to the Browns' stadium for a display honoring his dad, was valued at about $60,000.
