Scott Hamilton is a four-time world champion figure skater, best known for winning the 1984 Olympic gold medal during the Winter Games in Sarajevo. He’s also a world-class memorabilia collector.

But while he does keep a few items from his notable figure skating career, including the costume he wore in the 1984 Olympics, his collection isn’t dominated by items from his career.

Instead, Scott primarily collects vintage pinball machines and guitars autographed by rock and roll’s most famous personalities, including the Eagles and Bruce Springsteen. Most of these items were purchased to benefit a variety of charities, including his own Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation.

Scott is joined by his wife, Tracie, who shares his dedication to charitable organizations and love for music. And Lisa has brought back certified appraiser Judy Martin, who has something quite unique from the music world to offer as a trade item. Take a leap into Scott’s collection.

Inspiration of the Month

Donna Good (Marsden) Campbell

A born athlete from Burnaby, CB, Canada’s Donna Good-Campbell is still a force in the field of figure skating today, as a coach and competitor at the age of 78.  Donna has been part of the Ice Capades West Company in 1957 and 1958, and has spent her life coaching, both at home in Canada as well as in Argentina.

What has become your passion?  Recently the group of skaters I met up with, some still working, and some of us retired, we decided to compete in some adult competitions.  I decided to go for it and entered the Adult Bronze Interpretive Group V.  This group was aged 56-80 yr. age group.  I was the oldest competitor in the Skate Canada Super Series Final at age 77, also after having a total hip replacement.  I was just recovering from the hip at the last reunion, but I did to the Street Dance?

A 2018 Update:

At the Super Series Skate Canada, I won a Bronze Medal, as well as a silver.  I was competing against skaters 18 years younger than my 78 years at that time.

Donna’s 2020 Update – She’s still skating

Click here to view Donna’s latest program

I recently competed in the World Winter Masters Games 2020 in Innsbruck Austria.  The youngest competitor in some of the sports, skiing, for example age limit is 28 and I think for us it was 30 yrs. of age, the youngest allowed.  I skate with a group of adult ladies who call ourselves Team Okanagan.  There are 10 of us all competing at different levels separated into age groups.  I, of course, am in the most elderly group. It was quite a challenge to do this, but all the younger ones are so gung ho, and I can still skate a bit, so off I went.  I’m not too big on jumping due to the two hips being replaced, and being 80 yrs. of age. 

The team came home with 13 medals!!

I didn’t medal because of not being able to do a qualifying jump, however, I did skate my best.  I trained 3 times/week, and worked very hard to get the program together.  I’m taking a bit of a rest right now, the competition ended on January 19th.  It was quite an undertaking, and I actually met a girl (lady) from New Westminster who at one time trained with my old coach.  So we had a few trips down memory lane.  I’ll enclose my skating video, and maybe send some more photos a bit later.  We skated at the Olympic Arena the WWMGames are like a mini Olympics with all the sports.  This is the first year that Figure Skating has been included. So there were big opening ceremonies, etc. and they are held every 4 years.

Congratulations to Donna and the team.  You inspire us!

JoJo Starbuck takes a seat at the judges’ table at Seacoast Skating with the Stars

PORTSMOUTH — JoJo Starbuck, two-time member of the United State Figure Skating Team for the Winter Olympics, will help judge Seacoast Skating with the Stars at 2 p.m. Saturday at Labrie Family Skate at Puddle Dock Pond.

She will be joined by U.S. Figure Skating Pairs Champion Sheryl Frank, and last year’s Seacoast Skating with the Stars champion, Sean McGrimley, a physical education teacher at Little Harbor School in Portsmouth.

The show, following the format of television’s “Dancing with the Stars,” pairs six local volunteers with professional skaters to perform a brief routine for the panel of judges.

As in previous years, the show also features performances by Ice Dance International professional skaters, including Ian Lorello, Klabera Komini, Rohene Ward, Neill Shelton, Lara Shelton, Kseniya Ponomaryova, Alissa Czisny and Collin Brubaker.

Starbuck, with her childhood skating partner, Ken Shelley, made skating history in 1968 when the two became the youngest pairs team America had sent to the Olympic Games. That was followed by victories in the U.S. Pairs Championships in 1970, 1971 and 1972. They won the bronze medal at the World Championships in 1971 and 1972. In 1994, they were inducted into the United States Figure Skating Hall of Fame. Starbuck and Shelley turned professional in 1972, headlining “Ice Capades” for four years. In addition to designing choreography for World and Olympic skaters, Starbuck conducts skating workshops around the world, has performed in two feature films, and published her autobiography, “JoJo Starbuck.”

Franks, competing with Michael Botticelli, earned the bronze medal at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships four consecutive times, won the Eastern U.S. Pairs Championship and finished seventh at the 1980 Winter Olympic Games.

Spectators will can weigh in on this year’s winning pair. Tickets for rink-side viewing include public skating after the show. For details, go to strawberybanke.org.
