They’re no stranger to other collecting fields and have handled plenty of sports memorabilia in the past but Morphy Auctions now has its own sports division, with twice-a-year auctions in the works.
The Pennsylvania-based company is one of the largest auctioneers in the country, growing from two to over 65 employees since launching in 2004. In all, hold three dozen auctions each year in everything from firearms to fine art.
Their first sports sale is scheduled to begin in late October.
Hobby veteran Kevin Bronson has been brought aboard as a consultant to help get the first auction underway.
Morphy will attend major sports memorabilia shows during the year to acquire material and accept consignments.
We chatted with Bronson on the NSCC floor about the venture.
