Rob Lifson Retiring from REA

Longtime hobby participant and head of Robert Edward Auctions, Rob Lifson has stated he plans to retire in 2016.

Rob Lifson, in a blog post on his Robert Edward Auctions website, wrote he is retiring in 2016 from the business after more than 40 years in the hobby.

"The time has FINALLY come for me to make plans for retirement from the baseball card and memorabilia auction business," Lifson wrote. "The reason? Simple: I’m realizing that I am getting a little older. I’m 55 years old now (I know…many of you who have never met me probably thought I was even older just because I’ve been around so long), and I want to do some other things before it is too late."

REA's Consignment Director Brian Dwyer will take over the business.
