Huggins and Scott Auctions is a constantly growing company. Since our last auction (October 2007), where we grossed nearly $2.5 Million, we have more staff as well as field representatives in three additional states. Should you have an interest in joining our staff, we are always looking for part-time field representatives in new areas. Call our main office toll free 1-866-462-2273 and ask for Bill Huggins; it's a no lose situation for you, as well as a chance to make some serious money. Now, here are your Teammates:
Bill Huggins: The President of the company and a major figure at the last 25 Nationals as well as most major trade shows in the country for the past 20+ years, Bill has seen and played an up-front part in taking this hobby from a collecting fad to a multimillion dollar industry. From spectacular finds (the first T206 Doyle variation ever sold) to widely accepted revolutionary auction techniques (the 30 minute rule) Bill is always looking for ways to better the business that has been his life. While his schedule is extremely demanding, his insistence that customer satisfaction comes first is always the utmost of his priorities. You will often find when calling our main office that he will answer the phone himself. Bill’s interests include collecting fine wines (a passion he acquired from his mentor Uncle Dick), game-used bats and the endless pursuit of the ultimate Hogan’s Heroes set.
John Scott Sr: From his early days as the auctioneer at the legendary Willow Grove shows to his amazing 2nd place finish at one of the earliest recorded card flipping contests ever held at a sports card show (You Go Danny!), John has played a immeasurable part in the growth of this hobby. His vast knowledge of vintage sports and especially non-sports cards and memorabilia are an invaluable resource to our company. His passion is original card artwork and his collection of such items is unapproachable.
Josh Wulkan: It’s tough to describe all of Josh’s duties at Huggins and Scott. He really has a hand in every aspect of the business, and these catalogs and our internet site would not be anywhere close to what they are without him. He is our west coast consignments and acquisitions representative as well as our advertising manager and Vice President of Auction Operations. Josh entered the hobby at the ripe old age of 13, and now some 20+ years later he brings a work ethic and attention for details that are second to none. While his youthful appearance may deceive you at first, he has game that will impress you. His collecting interests range from Ferris Fain “the ultimate semi-star” to game-used bats of budding stars like Kevin Seitzer and Lloyd McClendon.
John Scott Jr: I’m sure one of John’s earliest memories has got to be a baseball card show. John has grown up with this hobby in his blood. Now the head of our legal team here, John is constantly involved in the operations of this company on a mostly behind-the-scenes basis. We are always thrilled when he takes a break from the courtroom, dons his H & S shirt and joins at the National. John’s collecting interests are also heavily weighted toward the non-sport section of our hobby although on a more recent basis. I think John even surprises himself sometimes as to how much he knows about the industry. Apple not fall from tree!
Steve Dickler: Our leader every auction in consignments, Steve is constantly traveling the Philly and South New Jersey area to secure many major collections for our auctions. A tireless professional, Steve brings an unequaled knowledge of the right way to do business and the ability to handle and adapt to vastly different collections he sees on a daily basis. We are truly honored to have him representing our company. Steve’s hobby interests focus mainly on older and tough to find unopened boxes. If you are ever looking for a tough - or just popular at the time - case, box or pack, a call to Steve might just surprise you.
Kevin Heffner: With the title of head writer Kevin has an immense task for each auction and handles the job with the utmost of professionalism. Many of you who have consigned items to us have probably had the pleasure of dealing with Kevin in his endless quest for the perfect write-up. He often emails and converses with our consignors to extract all possible information about the items he and his staff are writing about. Kevin hails from the “cheesesteak” capital of the world and his main collecting interests are “xx” rated as in Jimmie.
Stefan Wisinski: After joining our staff roughly 3 years ago, Stefan has established himself as our “Jack of all Trades”. While still a babe in calendar years, Stefan's “spongelike” approach to his day-to-day duties is impressive. There is no task he is afraid to take on. Stefan comes from the “Steel City” and is the two-time defending champion in our in-house fantasy football league.
Matt Flores: Matt joined our writing team full time in May, and while some people have speed and others accuracy, when you find the two combined you get a true winner. That's Matt. From his writing and research duties to helping out with photographs and an occasional show appearance, Matt never stops. Matt’s collecting interests focus on players from all sports who attended his alma mater, the University of Maryland.
William Bryan: For several years now William has been the backbone of one of the most thankless areas of our company, the shipping department. With trying to get everyone’s order packaged carefully and shipped in a timely manner, he only gets feedback when something goes wrong. With over 1500 items to ship in about 2-3 weeks he is constantly covered in Styrofoam and bubble wrap. William’s collecting interests are the New York Football Giants.
James Feagin: James came to us from the 9-5 daily grind work force with a desire to pursue his true calling in life of writing and researching vintage cards and memorabilia. “Where have you been James” is all I can say. His write-ups clearly reflect the passion he possesses for this hobby and his knowledge of the game is astonishing. A true asset to our team. James’ collecting interests are in the old, odd and unusual.
Collin Corbin: A new member to our team, Collin has quickly established himself as our photographing and scanning guru. All those crystal clear photos in the catalog and on our website can be attributed to Collin’s attention to detail and eye for perfection.
Chris Burns: A new member to our team, Chris has fit in quite well with our writing staff. A local guy who used to be a regular shopper at the House of Cards, Chris' specialties are vintage baseball cards & memorabilia and collecting has been in his family for several generations. He is an avid cricket player and his current collecting interests lie in Indian cricket memorabilia and literature. In his spare time, Chris also hunts down rare 12" disco records and DJs his finds at nightclubs throughout the D.C. area and East Coast.
Chuck Bortnick: What can we say but “He’s Back”. After a 7 year stint in his brother’s car business, Chuck has rejoined our staff as our local area rep and is also running the day-to-day operations of House of Cards. His true love has always been this hobby, ever since he was Bill’s original partner back in 1980. Chuck is our road warrior for retrieving collections within a 500-or-so mile radius of our home office. If you have a sizable collection that needs to be picked up, you may just see Chuck’s smiling face at your door one day.
Dick DeCourcy: What can we say about “Uncle Dick, The Legend” While building Georgia Music and Sports from a basement business to one of the largest mass distributors this industry has ever seen, Dick has seen and done it all. Now that he is semi-retired, we are honored to have him on our staff as our North Carolina/Georgia/South Carolina representative. Should you be in that area and wish to discuss your consignments, give him a call. You will NEVER meet a finer gentleman, who respects this hobby and exudes class from dawn till wine time!
Richard Wiercinski: A savvy show veteran dealer for many years, Richard’s passion is vintage cards. He joined our staff in 2005 and has provided many quality items in this catalog. Richard represents the NJ/NY area for us and is highly qualified to handle any collection. If you're in the North Jersey area, and would like to discuss sale or consignment of your collection, call Richard; you'll love working with him.
Ron Vitro: From Aaron autographs to Zelmo Beatty's jersey, Ron has seen and handled it all. If you are in the New York area and have vintage sports cards or memorabilia to sell or consign, Ron is the man to call. A true professional in every sense of the word, we are honored to have him working with us.
Ricky Huggins: Ricky has literally grown up in a ‘House of Cards’. With his father owning the same named business for his entire life he has heard terms like wax box, factory set and mint corners since he could remember. Now a first year student at Slippery Rock College in western Pennsylvania, Ricky is well qualified to handle your sale or consignment needs between classes.
Jonathan Abraham: What can I say about Jonathan except “he's done it all.” From storeowner to regional distributor to National table holder, Jonathan is a tested hobby veteran. If you're in the Florida area and are looking to sell or consign any vintage collectibles, call Jonathan. He will thoroughly impress you with his knowledge and helpfulness in turning your collection into the most money possible. Call him.
Kevin Endo: Originally from the Washington, DC area, Kevin is now retired from the Navy and covers the Ohio, Kentucky and Erie, PA area. A real go-getter, Kevin will amaze you with his knowledge and enthusiasm about many aspects of this hobby. His honesty and integrity go along way toward securing many valuable collections for our auction. If you are in his area and have consignments to discuss, call Kevin 24/7. He never sleeps!
Ed Como: One of our recent acquisitions, Ed handles the Western Massachusetts/Connecticut area for consignments. Knowledgeable about virtually everything from antiques (thanks to his father-in-law) to cards, Ed is excited about securing large collections from one of the true “vintage” areas of our country.
Steve Slockett: A veteran of the hobby, Steve brings us valuable experience in the consignments and acquisitions department. He travels to most of the major east coast shows and covers the West Virginia and Southern Pennsylvania areas for us.
Steve Phillips: Air traffic controller by day and consignments and acquisitions director in Arlington, Texas by night. Steve has already turned over several terrific consignments in the Lone Star State and is always looking for more. Contact him with what you have - he's great to work with.
Roger Stone: A vintage card aficionado, Roger anchors our Champaign, Illinois and surrounding areas. His passion is vintage cards from the 1940s-1970s, but he is more than willing to help with any collection that you want to turn into cash.
J.D. Heckathorn: We are extremely thrilled to have added this well-respected hobby veteran to our staff. J.D. hails from the great state of Indiana and brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise on vintage cards and memorabilia. Don’t let his “boyish” looks fool you, J.D. can handle everything from 1880-2007 with the class and style that will impress you. He is still active on the major Midwest show circuit; should you be in that area and have items to discuss for either sale or consignment, give J.D. a call.
Jay Strecker: With our local area business growing daily, we were in need of a Baltimore area representative. Enter Jay Strecker.
