In this episode, Horacio invites Mike Keys, COO at SCP Auctions – one of the country’s leading sports memorabilia auction houses. Mike has seen firsthand the rise in sports memorabilia and the rise of new asset classes like Type 1 Photographs and Ticket Stubs. He talks about meeting shifting demands, provenance and authenticating items, his journey to becoming a COO, and Memorabilia with the potential to see the same gains as sports cards.

Sports Memorabilia in 2022

You may remember the sports memorabilia index drifting upwards several weeks back. This turned out to be a temporary blip and after the head fake upwards, the index reversed its course and has now dropped 4% over the last four weeks.

The index remains down 4% YTD, but still above the lows it reached last summer.

Last Week

Fractional Secondary Markets

All sports memorabilia assets were up slightly more than a half percent for the week. The two titans of the index moved in opposite directions, as basketball was up 1.4% for the week while baseball was slightly in the red with a .5% loss.

A pair of Collectable offerings highlighting Kobe Bryant led the advancers as his final season sneakers gained 20% and a pair of game-worn and signed sneakers from 2002 surged 26%.

The Rally Dr. J game-worn jersey fell 66% and Muhammed Ali inscribed gloves, new to daily trading, plunged 42%.

All stats come from assets trading on the secondary markets at Otis, Collectable, and Rally

Buyouts

The Collectable Oscar Robertson 60-62 Rookie Cincinnati Royals Jersey accepted a buyout offer of $320,000 ($5.57 net per share) which was an 11.4% return over the IPO price. Our inferred value for this piece was $306,000, with an active buy recommendation.

Auctions

The Heritage Winter Platinum Sports Auction concluded over the February 26 weekend with a few items of fractional impact.
