The Lakers Shrine

George Mikan's glasses. Elgin Baylor's game-worn uniform. Jerry West's game-worn shoes. Wilt Chamberlain's passport. Kareem Abdul Jabbar's goggles. Magic Johnson's game-worn Dream Team jersey. Shaquille O'Neal's shoes. All of it autographed.

That's just a tiny introductory sampling of the massive main course we found just under 50 miles south of the Lakers practice facility at David Kohler's Lakers Shrine in Orange County.

Kohler, the president of SCP Auctions ("Important Sports Memorabilia & Cards") and a huge Lakers fan, has spent years putting together what's literally the largest collection of Lakers memorabilia in the world. Last week, Kohler gave us a tour of his Shrine and sat down to describe it and explain how he put it together.
