The Labelman is Dwayne Rogers, who as a former agriculture inspector, began collecting produce crate labels in the late 1970s. He discovered that there were others out there, mostly in the agriculture business, who likewise had an interest in these colorful relics of the not-too-distant-past. At that time, it wasn't too difficult to find unused labels in agriculture warehouses, farms, and even print shops. Dwayne began collecting, trading, and began selling his labels at flea markets, street fairs, and eventually, eBay. I've bought some of my own labels from him.
