Sports Memorabilia performance in 2022

The Sports Memorabilia index seems to have found a floor.

It has remained down 14% for five out of the last seven weeks.

Last week in Sports Memorabilia

Fractional secondary markets

With the index relatively flat, the two major components were also flat as basketball and baseball memorabilia saw little price action on the week.

Last Week in Sports Memorabilia
All stats come from assets trading on the secondary markets of Otis, Rally, and Collectable

Sports photographs were the lone bright spot, helped by a 19% gain on the Collectable Type III Lou Gehrig photo.

Single-handedly keeping Sports Memorabilia afloat.

Buyout offer

The Collectable 1996 Kobe Bryant Rookie Game Worn and Signed Sneakers received a buyout offer for $152,500 ($11.55/share); it last traded at $8.00; inferred value was $36,000 prior to the buyout offer.

The offer would represent a 44% premium over the last traded price


The Goldin Jackie Robinson 75th anniversary auction closed on May 2. While the headline Jackie Robinson game-used Dodgers jersey didn’t meet its reserve price, other memorabilia pieces did change hands.

This was from Curry’s second season with the Warriors.
This jersey has been photo matched to the Nov. 9, Nov. 16, and Nov. 23 games.
While wearing this offered Mavericks Statement Edition jersey against the Los Angeles Lakers on Nov. 1, 2019, Doncic had a team-high 31 points in Dallas’ 119-110 loss at American Airlines Center.

‘06-’07 Alexander Ovechkin Game-Worn Capitals Jersey – Photomatched 6 games

Is the Screaming Eagle a “screaming buy”?


The Heritage May 12-14 sports catalog auction concludes this week. Some items of note are:

  • Tom Brady 624th Career Touchdown Pass Football – currently at $14,400. This isn’t Brady’s infamous “final” touchdown pass football that dominated the headlines for several weeks due to the unfortunate timing of Brady’s un-retirement announcement. This football was from the previous game and is Brady’s “last” regular-season TD pass, at least for the next several months (or if Tommy Boy changes his mind once again).
Guess who’s back … back again?
The stub exhibits creasing and toning consistent with its technical grade, but the historic significance is not undone.
The first “yellow variation” full ticket Heritage Auctions has ever handled from the 1992 Nissan Open
This large paper stub was present to witness the dawning of a new era in international soccer.
  • 1988/89 Partick Roy and 1991/2000 Jaromir Jagr Game Worn Jerseys – currently at $8,400 and $5,520, respectively; a relatively low-cost option to get game-worn exposure to two of hockey’s all-time greats.
This Roy jersey was originally on display at the Canadiens Museum and still has a tag from when it was inventoried.
