Bobby Poll - Owner With more than 20 years in the hobby, Bobby Poll is a name to know when it comes to buying or selling sports memorabilia, autographs, and trading cards.

It all started innocently enough with a few packs of cards. Poll was selling his duplicates at local swap meets at the age of 11 and moved on to mall card shows by age 14. With the emergence of eBay, Poll shifted his operation to cyberspace, becoming an eBay member in 1998. Since then, he has listed more than 1,000,000 items and amassed an eBay feedback total surpassing 49,000!

In 2001, Poll, who holds a degree in finance from Northern Arizona University, began shifting his focus from modern sports cards to the world of autograph collecting and founded the Phoenix-based business Autograph Reference. As an authorized James Spence Authentication (JSA) dealer, Autograph Reference provides an array of collectibles and authentically signed material. Poll operates Autograph Reference with the goals of being respectful to the hobby while offering quality items that will add value to a customer’s collection.

Bobby isn’t in the hobby just for financial gain. He has also made it his goal to educate novice (and veteran) collectors via three books, including 2010’s "Signature Study of Baseball Hall of Famers," a 600-page tome considered by many to be the most comprehensive signature guide; and 2012’s "50 Most Forged Sports Autographs," a 344-page guide aimed at assisting collectors from being duped.

July of 2015 will mark a new chapter in Poll’s career with the launch of his latest venture, Signature Auctions. "I've been an active buyer and seller with many auction houses across the country, so I know both sides of the business," Poll added. It’s those many years of interacting with auction houses that has driven him to create an auction house that is both bidder friendly and allows consignors to achieve maximum sales results. He hopes you will all join him on this exciting new venture and looks forward to serving the collecting community.
