As a high school senior, Richard Kunst chose to write to then-Pres.
Today, Kunst is a pastor at St. John's the Evangelist in Duluth. He's also in possession of a one-of-a-kind collection of religious artifacts. Kunst is presenting some of the items from his collection at 5:30 p.m. today at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. "Autographs of saints are more rare," said Kunst. "Popes are more likely to sign many documents and letters." The items Kunst is bringing account for less than 10 percent of his entire collection, which has only been exhibited once (in 2004) and has grown since then. Kunst has presented small parts of his collection twice before. This will be the third time part of the collection will be made available to the public. "The complete exhibit took eight to nine months and 150 people to organize," Kunst said. "I don't foresee another large showing in the near future." Someday, Kunst said he would like to create a permanent display for his collection. "It is all for the sake of education," he said. By 1995, Kunst had thousands of autographs. He had begun receiving catalogs of autographs for auction. Looking through them, the well-versed collector saw something new - autographs from popes. "I wasn't a priest then, but I was still very interested in those autographs," he said. "Of course, the Internet made (collecting) much easier," Kunst said. "I began searching for any items that were uniquely connected to popes, and many of my connections are in Europe." He continues to search the Internet daily for new and unusual items. He estimates that 70 percent of his income is spent on artifacts. Kunst has also acquired many articles of clothing. "Even if you're not Catholic, the collection is still interesting," said Kunst.

Father Richard Kunst
Father Richard Kunst Father Richard Kunst is pastor of St. Johnthe Evangelist in Duluth and St. Joseph in Gnesen. Reach him at rbkunst@q.com. Father Richard Kunst, pastor of St. John the Evangelist in Duluth and St. Joseph in Gnesen, has made an international name for himself as a collector of papal memorabilia and as the host of the EWTN show "The Papacy: A Living History," which is based on his collection. The most recent addition - from the popular Pope Francis - drew a flurry of media attention in May from coast to coast and even to Sports Illustrated: a signed baseball.

(Photo courtesy of Father Richard Kunst) "This was my fourth attempt to get to meet him," Father Kunst said. He finally was one of about 50 for the event who got a prized ticket allowing him a brief moment to greet the pope. He handed the pope a copy of the DVD of his EWTN show, and he said the pope took it and thanked him. Then came the other part. "I had the baseball in my other hand, and quickly I handed it to him," Father Kunst said. The pope seemed happy to sign it, Father Kunst said. "I was super pumped about it," he said. "I actually had the idea for quite a long time." He said the idea of asking him to sign a baseball wasn't related to any particular interest by the pope in the game - he's a well-known soccer fan - but rather the uniqueness of it as a piece of papal memorabilia. Signed baseballs are a unique niche. He said he knows of maybe four or five other baseballs signed by popes in the past 50 years or so. The story was picked up by Duluth's ABC affiliate WDIO and then quickly spread through an Associated Press story and some coverage by other Minnesota media outlets. That has meant a lot of comments in day-to-day life. "A lot of people want to see it," Father Kunst said. "I jokingly tell people, 'No, I'm still sleeping with it,'" he added. He has shown it to a relatively small group of people, including weekly Mass-goers at St. John's. He said the baseball will be part of his famous collection.
