Hartland of Ohio has launched Hartland Auctions, a new division of the long standing company. Hartland will coordinate numerous auctions throughout the year focusing on original sports figures, western pieces, hang tags and classic Hartland memorabilia. Hartland will launch the first auction later this year.
VP of Sales & Operations, Hank J. Reed, will coordinate the auctions and is currently accepting quality Hartland consignments.
Hartland began in Wisconsin back in the late 1950’s, creating a series of baseball, football and western figures. The plastic statues were created with an eye on making them as realistic as possible.
After producing its last statues in the 1960’s, the brand was dormant for many years before being resurrected. Hartland of Ohio is currently producing a line of Negro Leaguers and other statues.
“We have a team that is very knowledgeable about the history of the Hartland brand,” said Hartland President Faye Halliwell, “Our new auction service will provide another valuable resource for our loyal collectors when deciding whether to sell or keep their Hartland collection. We will take great care of each consignment and maximize the auction proceeds of each lot while also offering a unique buying experience.”
Hartland of Ohio, LLC has relocated operations to Queen City Sports Cards & Memorabilia in Fairfield, OH. Queen City Sports Cards & Memorabilia is an authorized distributor of Hartland sports figures and will also be home to the “Hartland Museum.” The new location features a state of the art modern facility and rare Hartland pieces on display. The facility will be open later this month.
