KENNEBUNK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The Mainer who has been to every Super Bowl is lending some of his memorabilia to the Brick Store Museum in Kennebunk.

Museum curator Cynthia Walker says she got the idea for the exhibit during last year's Super Bowl. She was wishing there were a local connection that would make sense for this local history museum.

Then she remembered that Don Crisman, one of just three members of the Never Miss A Super Bowl Club, lives right in town.

Crisman said, "I thought to acquire museum status, you had to be below ground. So this is unexpected." But he was more than happy lend some of his things.

Items at the museum include a number of signed balls, pennants, pictures and buttons. Walker says her favorite piece is the hat that Crisman bought at the first Super Bowl. It sits next to a picture of him wearing it at the game.

Crisman's favorite thing is his ticket collection. Tickets from the three Patriots wins are displayed at the museum, along with a replica of his ticket to Super Bowl I. He would have given the actual ticket, but he had already agreed to show it off at an event in New Orleans this week.

The Brick Store Museum is located at 117 Main Street in Kennebunk. Hours are Tuesday-Friday 10-4:30 and Saturday 10-1. Admission is a suggested donation of $5. The exhibit will be there until March 30.
