A midwesterner by birth, Tim now serves as REA's West Coast Consignment Director based in Southern California. As a collector of sports autographs for over fifty years, Tim brings with him a passion and knowledge that cannot be taught. At one time, Tim possessed in excess of 25,000 signatures, many of which were chased down in person. Tim's goal is to help collectors like himself bring their collections to auction with the presentation and expertise they deserve. Tim works with consignors from all around the world and represents REA at a number of trade shows around the country.
