Robert Edward Auctions’ dispute with Peter Nash is back in court with the REA now attempting to send the former Third Bass artist and his wife to jail on contempt of court charges.
Attorneys for the auction house have been seeking to collect the remainder of a large loan REA supplied to Nash. A court issued a $760,000 judgment against Nash in 2008.

The family of Clyde McCullough is hoping the collecting community will keep an eye open for his missing 1969 Mets World Series ring. The ring, they say, was taken from the old Lake Wright Hotel in the late 1970s. Family members have been searching for it every since.
McCullough’s name is engraved inside.
McCullough worked as a manager and instructor in the Mets’ farm system in the mid- to late-1960s when the club developed a string of future greats including Nolan Ryan, Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman and Tug McGraw.
He died while serving as the San Diego Padres’ pitching coach in 1982.
Contact us if you might have a lead on where his 1969 World Series ring may be and we’ll be glad to pass the information along.
A new sports card shop has opened in Rochester, N.Y. after it outgrew Brendan McKenzie’s basement and his wife strongly suggested something be done (sound familiar?).
McKenzie and store manager Ted Harkness carry new and old cards, autographs and a variety of other items and say they hope to encourage a new generation of collectors. Kudos to the local paper for giving them a little attention here.
