Collectors Holdings, a group co-owned by New York Mets owner Steve Cohen, has acquired Goldin Auctions — an auction house for trading cards and other sports collectibles.
Topps expects 2021 sales to range between $740 million and $760 million.
The sports memorabilia industry is worth an estimated $15 billion year — Goldin is one of the space’s leaders.
- Goldin raised $40 million in a February round led by The Chernin Group that included Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade, Mark Cuban, and Bill Simmons.
- Goldin broke its annual sales record only three months into 2021, reaching $100 million by March.
Collectors Holdings was founded with the initial purpose of purchasing Collectors Universe, owner of trading card grader PSA.
Earlier this year, Cohen, along with hedge-fund billionaire Dan Sundheim and sports card collector Nat Turner, took Collectors Universe private at an $853 million valuation.
