Joseph was a vintage collector back in the 1970s, when as an adolescent he began collecting older cards after completing his ‘current sets’ in 1975 and 1976. With his father, Joseph made his first visit to a baseball card store on October 2, 1978, the same day Bucky Dent hit his dramatic home run against the Boston Red Sox. Joseph became a full-time sports card dealer in the mid-1990s and has been devoted to the industry for over 25 years. He was hired by Mastro Auctions in 2001, working with many of the most knowledgeable hobby experts, specializing in evaluating, processing, and describing vintage trading cards. Well regarded within the industry, Joseph was hired by Lelands Auction house, when they needed a vintage card expert. Joseph coordinated their Vintage Card Division. JOe was recruited by RR Auctions to start their sports division and ironically once again teamed up with Louis Bollman to help put them on the map for sports collectibles.

Working at RR Auctions, I built a prosperous sports auction business from scratch, obtaining, organizing and auctioning several large private collections. After a second successful auction, I decided to form my own company to do the same – selling collections of cards and memorabilia, and helping their clients realize more money than they would by directly selling their collections. With being a former full-time dealer, I will work for the consignor, using their talents to help improve the value of their client’s collections. Having contacts within the industry, and using third-party grading services to enhance values, the highest prices will be realized. Not every item is necessarily best served in an auction environment, and my experience can determine whether a direct sale of any item might be best for the client. While other auction houses claim to have tens of thousands of bidders, TSAC has a vast mailing list of “ACTIVE” bidders, including high-end collectors and full-time dealers. Having hundreds of full-time dealers actively bidding on their client’s items realizes much more in terms of dollars than if their clients sold their collections directly to these dealers. Let my experience help you sell your lifetime collection.
