Hunt Auctions is a family established firm with over 30 years of experience specifically within the sports memorabilia industry. We have a broad based knowledge and understanding of the sports memorabilia market in numerous categories inclusive of autographed materials, advertising items, game used items, equipment, sports cards, pennants, display pieces, and photography. The importance of this varied knowledge cannot be overstated as the key to realizing strong auction prices begins with a complete understanding of the item itself and the market in which to sell that item. Hunt Auctions takes great pride in our unparrelelled internal knowledge base within our staff as developed over the many years of experience within the sports industry.
Our client list is among the most substantive in the industry methodically curated over our 30 year history consisting of dealers and collectors at the highest level in the United States and abroad. We have carefully built our customer base to ensure that your merchandise is being sold to reliable clients who will bid aggressively and secure prompt payment. In addition to our established clientele we are constantly working to add to that list through important show venues, unique auction exhibitions, and our exclusive professional sports partnerships. Such exclusive in person venues and virtual partnerships have been in place ranging from 10-20 years, respectively, to include the Major League Baseball All-Star Fan Fest, several Major League Baseball stadium venues, Louisville Slugger Factory & Museum, and the NFL Experience at the Super Bowl. These highly regarded relationships are exclusive to Hunt Auctions and enable us to reach hundreds of thousands of upper income level customers who are the principal driving force behind the sports memorabilia market. The additional related expense and effort we incur as a company by participating within these exclusive venues are time proven and fully insure that your items will receive maximum exposure to which our competitors are not able to match.

The attribute for which Hunt Auctions is best known is its reputation for honesty and integrity. Our commitment to same is unwavering and unmatched by any of our competition. Unfortunately, in today's marketplace the old auction adage of "Buyer Beware" has never been more appropriate with the number of unscrupulous individuals and even auction firms firmly rooted within the industry. We exercise uniquely concerted efforts to secure pieces from reputable sources including former athletes, league entities, estates and private collections. In addition to the quality of our merchandise we guarantee all our auction items as described in the catalogue unlike most companies who place the burden on the buyer. These points are of extreme importance for several reasons: a) Customers purchasing high level items want to trust the auction house without question or doubt. b) Customers will bid with confidence on items that are not only represented correctly but guaranteed as such. c) Most importantly the reputation that we have earned will translate into concrete sales results or buyer confidence for our consignors and buyers, respectively.
