It runs in the family.
Andrea Evans-Young, the sister of Lelands Founder and Chairman Josh Evans, has launched a business offering online sports and pop culture memorabilia auctions via eBay. “Evans Archive” will hold weekly events with a variety of vintage sports cards and memorabilia.
Like her brother, Andrea Evans-Young is a long-time fixture in the collectibles arena. Both grew up in the business with their parents, antique dealers Stuart and Maxine Evans.
Among the items in the current auction is several pieces of original cartoon artwork from the archives of The Sporting News, along with numerous T205 tobacco cards,and vintage team sets and lots.
Among the higher end highlights is an ongoing auction of original issues of The Sporting Life that were once part of the Baseball Hall of Fame archive. A 1901 issue featuring Christy Mathewson in his rookie season carries an opening bid of just under $1,000 while another picturing Cy Young opens at just under $300.
