Randy Kaplan, whose hobby is collecting baseballs signed by world leaders, scored a biggie a couple of months ago.  After years of trying, he landed a signed ball from the pope.

Kaplan is relentless in his quest to get some of the world’s most famous (and not so famous) heads of state.  He has some fun tales to tell about his efforts and his interactions.

His unusual collection caught the attention of NPR.  You can read (and listen to) their interview with him here.
