It is the ideal setting to attract new bidders and scout future consignments that will benefit both our customer base and the hobby as a whole.”

The event organizers are similarly enthusiastic about Legendary Auctions’ participation. “Part of what makes the Sports Legends Challenge a once-in-a-lifetime experience is the quality group of corporate partners involved in the event,” said Sports Legends Challenge Founder and CEO, Bruce Bibbero. “To that point, we are pleased to have Legendary Auctions on board as the official auction source and look forward to the excitement their expertise and professionalism will add to the overall event.”
