These collectors have spent more than $250,000,000 on fine collectibles.
- Enhanced Online Presentation – Rockhurst Auctions presents your fine memorabilia in our state-of-the-art online auction environment with added content like video and audio elements to further entice bidders and create the bidding momentum that drives prices to meet your expectations.
Rockhurst events provide consignors the perfect opportunity to offer their fine Sports Memorabilia and Americana to a unique group of tens of thousands of serious collectors. From research and authentication to customer service, presentation, and fulfillment, each step of the process is infused with a singularity of purpose: our consignor’s success is our success. We are only satisfied with this partnership when our consignor’s expectations are met—when the value of their material is maximized.
Our experts bring their considerable experience to bear on ensuring the proper presentation of your fine collectibles, whether we are offering Sports Memorabilia, Rock and Roll artifacts, Hollywood & TV Memorabilia, Historical Documents, Autographs, Vintage Toys, Original Photographs or almost anything anyone collects at the highest levels.
We will scour through your vintage sports card and non-sports sets and groups and let you know what needs to be graded, what needs to be broken out and sold separately, and what doesn’t. By developing a comprehensive and appropriate grading strategy for your cards, Rockhurst Auctions maximizes the value of your card collection.
It’s been our experience over the past 20-plus years in the auction business that authentication is the cornerstone of every significant offering. Too often material is presented with background information that is severely lacking. It’s an unfortunate condition in our industry. And while some material arrives well connected to its source with perfect provenance, the vast majority of the items come down through history with much finer bonds—bonds that require strengthening by dogged pursuit of the details. That’s how Rockhurst Auctions distinguishes itself.
Bidders trust in our unceasing efforts towards the authentication and provenance of the collectibles we offer. We invest countless resources and dollars to ensure the the material we offer is authentic, working with several third party firms to provide Letters of Authenticity and proper documentation. This deep sense of trust and credibility produces the kind of vigorous bidding momentum that defines a Rockhurst Auctions event.
Consigning is simple.
Standard Consignment Agreement
Once we have spoken to your about your material and discussed the values and consignment terms, you will receive our standard consignment agreement. The paperwork can be printed, signed and shipped with your material, or signed digitally through our secure online DocuSign account. With DocuSign, we both receive the executed agreement via email, with no need to print.

We will travel to you to review your significant collection. Our Consignment Director has visited collectors all over the country to secure fine collectibles for our auctions.
