The sports collectible industry will feature a new event in January as The MINT Collective bring together collectors, industry professionals and investors from around the world for a three-day event at the UFC APEX and MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
The event will also feature a unique auction for some of the most coveted sports cards and collectibles in the hobby. The MINT25 Auction is a collaborative event between Collectable, the industry’s leading fractional investment platform, and Lelands Auctions, the hobby’s oldest sports card and memorabilia auction house.
The MINT25 will run online from January 10 through January, with extended bidding taking place over the phone and in person at The MINT Collective presented by eBay in Las Vegas January 28-30. The auction will be limited to just 25 lots with a minimum expected appraised value of $250,000 per lot.
The auction is expected to contain marquee items from the world of sports collectibles, unique live sports experiences and more. All items included in The MINT25 will be on display during The MINT Collective, giving attendees a chance to appreciate the items in person. To submit an item for auction consideration, email info@TheMintCollective.com or visit www.TheMintCollective.com/Mint25. Assets will be jointly curated by the Lelands and Collectable consignment teams.
“We are thrilled to announce a partnership with Lelands, a much respected and trusted brand in the industry, for The Mint25,” Collectable CEO Ezra Levine said. “The auction will feature a highly curated selection of lots to showcase some of the best this industry has to offer. We anticipate the auction bringing some added excitement to The Mint Collective, a must-attend for collectors and investors alike.”
“This is an exciting time in the sport collectibles business and this event takes it to another level,” Lelands President Mike Heffner. “I am more excited about this auction than any I have been a part of over the past 35 years. The magnitude of the event, coupled with the historical importance of the items in the auction, will certainly produce record results. Bidders in the auction will also be exposed to hobby collectibles that may only be available once in a lifetime, giving them a chance to own items that could be showcased in any Hall of Fame.“
A joint endeavor between IMG and Collectable, The MINT Collective will be held at UFC APEX, the state-of-the-art arena and production facility and home to dozens of UFC events since 2020, and MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.
