Welcome to Love of the Game Auctions - a place we hope you'll come to know as a quality source for sportscard and memorabilia auctions.
Our Fall, 2014 Premier Auction was a great success. It was a bittersweet time for us, though - while we were preparing to launch the auction, we learned of the passing of our friend and fellow collector Jim Blumenthal.
Jim was as nice a guy as I've ever met in the hobby; a great, gentle bear of a guy with a beaming smile and a warm handshake. He was the kind of guy who could make you smile just by looking at you; sitting in the hotel bar with him at the National was always a highlight. He was a great collector and a better man, a peaceful and intelligent guy who brightened everyone's day whenever he walked into it. I've never met anyone so interested in what YOU had in your collection - genuine interest. He wanted to know what you liked, and he wanted to hear you share your passion for it. We should all have been lucky enough to have a conversation with Jim Blumenthal.
We already miss him, and wish peace and strength to his family.
-Al Crisafulli, LOTG
