Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 31, 2015
Historic memorabilia hobbyist Jeff Prager’s comprehensive New York Giants collection is the envy of any Giants enthusiast. With a collection of over 7000 items, the consensus is that if there was a Giants emblem on it, Jeff had at least one. Before Prager’s untimely death at 49 years old it was his dream to have this collection become a commemorative museum for the New York Giants. The collection was previously featured in a virtual online museum where fans could experience Giants history item by item. This exclusive opportunity to bid on the many artifacts of Giants history at http://www.SigAuctions.com will expire on August 5th.
Prager was a collector of the highest order, truly dedicating his life to all things New York Giants. Growing up in New Jersey, other kids were collecting Giants memorabilia like Prager, but he quickly elevated his hobby to historic levels. In no time Prager had amassed quite possibly the largest collection of Giants memorabilia. Having no kids, the New York Giants were Prager’s family. Prager’s brother sums up his brother’s love for the team: “He became friends with many Giants players. I don’t think he ever missed a game. That was his thing – he would fly to the games and got to know the players and collected N.Y. Giants stuff. That was his life.”
The collection was previously not for sale on a piece-by-piece basis and was instead only to be sold as a comprehensive lot. This caveat has changed and SigAuctions.com is honored to have the chance to give buyers the chance to collect a piece of Giants history, one item at a time.
Current Auctions are:
- Giants Stadium sideline markers
- Ceramic figurines from the 1960’s
- Programs and ticket stubs from the 40’s and 50’s
- Historic Giant game film
- Various Autographed memorabilia
- Game used helmet and pants
- Many more to be found on sigauctions.com/catalog.aspx
All auctions will remain open until August 5th, 2015, meaning the window to own your own piece of New York Giants history is closing fast. Collections this vast and unique don’t come around often and many of these piece will not be for sale anywhere else in the foreseeable future.

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, SigAuctions.com "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.
