Launching their third online sports and memorabilia auction, is pleased to feature one of the world’s largest hockey memorabilia collections in existence—the prized Dan Fox Collection of over 60,000 autographed player trading cards. Those who collect signed sets in any sport are encouraged to preview this exclusive opportunity which closes September 16th, 2015.

This collection is unique in a few ways. Nearly every card in the collection bears a period signature of the player, including the Wayne Gretzky O-Pee-Chee RC! These period signatures dating from a player’s career are far more valuable than the modern versions players sign at shows today. Because of this, there are signatures from several players who only had a cup of coffee with an NHL club and finding a signed card of these players, especially the now deceased players is a practical impossibility.

There are also many oddball cards featured in this and future auctions which as any card collector can attest are some of the hardest to find, especially signed. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for hockey collectors as the next time a collection this complete will be offered to the public is anyone’s guess.

Consigners and buyers alike will appreciate Sig Auctions’ customer-friendly approach and full service offerings which include a full menu of appraisal and insurance services at low to no cost paired with the lowest consignment fees in the business.

In addition to the Dan Fox Collection, the latest auction includes:

  •     NBA 50 Greatest Players Signature Display - features a signature from each player named to the NBA's 50 Greatest Players list
  •     One of the Finest Ty Cobb Single Signed Baseballs to be offered at auction. Personalized "To Mike", must have for any collector named Mike. Autograph is graded Near Mint to Mint 8 by Beckett Grading Services
  •     Several Neil Armstrong Signed Items Including a rare uninscribed NASA photograph.

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, "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.
