SCP Auctions, one of the nation’s largest auctioneers and private sellers of important sports memorabilia and cards, is a leader in the industry. Founded in 1979 by David Kohler, SCP Auctions’ record speaks for itself, as the company has realized record auction and private sale prices for the T-206 Honus Wagner card ($2.8 million), the bat Babe Ruth used to hit the first home run in old Yankee Stadium ($1.265 million), the contract that sent Babe Ruth to the Yankees from the Red Sox ($996,000) and Barry Bonds’ record-breaking No. 756 home run ball ($752,467). The company’s consistency and knowledge have helped maintain SCP Auctions’ stellar reputation as a dominant figure in the sports memorabilia world, and it is highly visible throughout the industry due to its presence at major collectibles shows across the country and in all the major trade publications. We are currently accepting consignments for our next auction.
SCP Auctions, the only sports memorabilia company to have partnered with storied auction house Sotheby’s, is constantly striving to uncover incredible collections and offer the most interesting, valuable and unique collectibles possible. The private collections of Honus Wagner, Casey Stengel, Pee Wee Reese, Wilt Chamberlain, Bob Cousy and George Mikan are just a few of the one-of-a kind offerings that the company has presented collectors.
SCP Auctions has aided collectors in their own collection sales, including the historic Bill Nowlin bat collection, featuring game-used bats from Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams and Lou Gehrig; the Mitsuhiko Fujita collection spanning the 1928, ’31, and ’34 major league all-star tours to Japan; the Kirk Harris T206 tobacco card collection; and the esteemed collection of Dr. Douglas Triplett’s “regionals” and test-issue single cards. We know we wouldn’t be able to succeed without your active participation, and we value our relationships with collectors and consignors alike.
