Love of the Game Auctions, an internet-based sports auction house catering to the passionate collector of cards and memorabilia, has named hobby veteran Jeff Prizner as Consignment Director. The announcement was made by Al Crisafulli, founder of Love of the Game.
Prizner, a University of Texas graduate residing in Seattle, is a longtime collector who has held various buying and planning roles with a number of major retailers during his career. During his career, he has taken an active role in the hobby, researching and authoring several articles in hobby publications, and extensively networking with collectors of prewar baseball material.
“Jeff is a long-time associate who has been supportive of our mission since Day One,” said Crisafulli. “His extensive hobby knowledge and his wealth of business experience make him a great addition to our small, but growing team. We know Jeff will be a tremendous asset to Love of the Game as we position the company for growth in the years to come.”
“I wanted to work with Al at Love of the Game not only because of his integrity, which is really second to none, but because of his genuine appreciation and passion for the material as well,” Prizner added. “Love of the Game will continue to grow into something really special, a customer-centric and well-curated auction house with the most interesting and coolest items. I’m excited to be a part of it.”
Prizner’s responsibilities will include the acquisition of quality consignments, as well as helping build customer relationships. To compliment Love of the Game’s East Coast presence, Prizner will continue working from his Seattle location.
