The days and weeks surrounding Christmas and the New Year’s Eve have given us a lot of precious moments over the last 100 years.

Here’s a quick look at a few magic sports moments that filled the Holiday Seasons and made history.

Detroit is Hockeytown.  True or false?

Well it’s hard to tell the 700,000+ people living in the 18th most populous city in the United States that they are wrong when you look at the stats and history of their team…

Do you want to ship your items for consignment but you are scared that they will be broken, stolen or even worst...that you will be charged with custom duties and fees? Well you are not alone.  Getting your items to an auction house (or to your clients if you are a seller yourself) is a major part of the game and can be an important part of the process or the decision to send them or not.

Well like many of you already know,  we were in Toronto last week for the Toronto International Sports Show.  This edition of the show was really exciting for us and many of you were able to past by just to say hi or to consign items for our following Winter 2012 Auction.  Marc and I were really pleased with all the amazing items that were consigned to us over the week-end.  The Toronto region continues...
