Hunt Auctions has reached a partnership agreement with the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association. The company will serve as the Official Auction Company for the MLBPAA with the purpose to facilitate various consignments, retail projects, and appearance opportunities for its player membership.
“We are very excited to embark upon this newly formed relationship as it fits perfectly with our twenty year history of working with countless Major League Baseball players and their families in the representation of their collections,” said David Hunt, President, Hunt Auctions. “We feel our unique blend of expertise in the field coupled with our unwavering commitment to professional integrity will equate to an outstanding relationship with the MLBPAA. The MLBPAA has a great history of working with its player membership and we look forward to assisting that same purpose in any way possible.”
