A Personal Statement of Wishes & Requests


What will happen to your treasured collection of sports memorabilia? An assembly of irreplaceable mementoes and unique collectables you have assembled with love? Will your heirs know how to maximize its value or will they squander thousands of dollars? Historically, the surviving chosen family and friends do not have the same attachment as you have as a passionate hobbyist, nor do they possess the abundance of knowledge or trusted friends you have made. Will these memoirs serve as antiques on a shelf somewhere, or receive their appropriate merit and value?

Should your loved ones retain the entire collection? Leak out portions gradually? Donate for tax purposes? Will they abandon it altogether not realizing its historical connotation and/or its monetary value? People often attempt to clean a prized possession and in doing so, permanently damage as well as devalue the item. With this in mind, it is time to take the proper precautionary measures. Contact Grey Flannel Auctions.
