Classic Auctions Winter 2018 Auction Results

Classic Auctions Winter Auction 2018 Closes in 2 Weeks – Ends February 27, 2018Classic Auctions Winter 2018 Auction offered stellar results, with numerous items closing much higher than anticipated. This was, without a doubt, the best auction Classic Auctions has had in the past eight years! Our market is very strong for quality right now, much better than years past. This month-long auction received thousands of bids on the 900+ items that were available for auction.

Items from the Paul Coffey Collection were of great interest, as were the Ed Belfour and Eric Lindros Collections and the 2005-06 Upper Deck ”The Cup” Hockey Card Sidney Crosby Autographed Rookie Patch. Traditionally hot items, including vintage hockey cards and game-used equipment, were in high demand, as were big ticket pieces such as championship rings and trophies.
