People On The Move: Julie Baron

Julie Baron - Collecting Dreams

Julie Baron has built a business that enriches peoples’ hearts and spirits. She is an expert in the field of collectibles and the owner of Fameabilia in Red Bank. A knowledgeable source on the subject of collecting, Julie is happy to share information with enthusiasts. Her opinions are sought out by sports fans and experts alike. Recently, she was interviewed on 1010 WINS radio regarding the Barry Bonds baseball that sold for $752,467. In her opinion it was a risky investment, as his legacy is tainted.*

Julie is quick to say that collecting can be for investment or for fun. There are many areas that pique people’s interest; however, the most important thing, which she stresses over and over again, is that people should buy only from reputable dealers and agents. You need to know that what you are buying is real!

In her store she is able to delight patrons by allowing them to touch their dreams, which might include acquiring a memento from a sports great or an entertainment icon. Patrons can get a close-up view of history – documents that have shaped our world and government. In fact, she recently sold a “force” copy of the Declaration of Independence; Julie shared that only 200 copies are known to have ever existed and this particular one was in wonderful condition.

Julie caters to the dreams of her customers, both young and old, who are transported by her memorabilia. Boys are enthralled by spending time with souvenirs of their favorite sports heroes. Some of her senior customers remember the “olden days,” revisiting their youth as they look through items from eras gone by. The client base is not limited to men; Julie says women have a penchant for collecting items as well. They are also interested in sports memorabilia, as well as historical and entertainment items.

Included in the inventory of collectibles are photos of sports icons and signed jerseys and balls. Some of the historical items include signed checks and presidential pardons, and the entertainment collectibles available include gold records and autographs from the stars. Fameabilia also hosts signings, where people can meet some of these celebrities.

Julie stresses that all her items are authentic, but strongly advises collectors to do their homework before making a purchase. Like any other acquisition, she warns that if it seems too good to be true it probably is: “Buyer beware!” She warns people about purchases on eBay; she has seen items listed that are not authenticated or are selling at prices too low to be legitimate. She says that people walk into her store all day trying to sell items, but she only deals with those vendors who assure authenticity, or directly with the athletes themselves or their agents and dealers. All her items are certified and have lifetime guarantees. Historical items are acquired from several different reputable sources and she stresses again that she only deals with top authenticators, through different historical societies and dealers. Many of the items available can also be thought of as an investment as well as part of a collection. Depending on the rarity or the popularity of the signer, these items may be in great demand, and the purchaser needs to be confident that their acquisition is certified.

Julie is originally from Brooklyn, New York. She was initially drawn to Colts Neck because of its quiet, tranquil feeling. She thought the land was beautiful and loved the bucolic setting. Julie and her husband Bruce first thought they would use their home in Colts Neck as a second home. They were looking for a retreat from the city and thought about buying a farm. Then they unexpectedly came across some new construction, fell in love with the house and property, and bought that instead. At the time they were also building a home in Brooklyn, but while they waited for that to be completed, the family – Julie, Bruce, and their children, Amanda and Michael – moved into the house in Colts Neck.

Julie stated that because she was always so involved with her business she was unable to participate directly in many community activities. However, her son Michael had been on the Colts Neck Township teams for soccer, baseball, and basketball through the years, and so, through his involvement in sports, she has felt a tie to this town. —by Tobi Tesoriero

*[Editor’s Note: The purchaser has since decided to have the ball branded (because of the controversy) and is donating it to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.]
