Although my brother kept up our tradition, as time went on, I left collecting behind. As we grew older, from time to time, he would invite me to a show. I don’t know how many times I turned him down, but eventually I gave in and attended a sports collectibles show in Miami.
My Brother Charles and I collected baseball cards as kids. Being from New York, the Yankees were de rigueur, of course. After moving to Miami in 1957, our grandfather continued the tradition by sending us wax boxes.
Just like that, I was transported back to our childhood and all the joyful hours we spent collecting cards. I was back, and it was good! My childhood passion fueled an adulthood quest to be the best, have preeminent baseball card collections, and share them with everyone.
It did not take long before I realized that people were overwhelmed for a connection with something greater than themselves.
They wanted to feel connected to the past, to the greats in sports and entertainment history.
I knew that people loved the products, and I was still blown away when Harrods contacted me to carry the Millionaire Gallery line in-store.
Others soon followed Harrods’ example, such as Harvey Nichols Department Stores in Dubai. What interested them as much as the product was my passion, a passion that continues to drive me to research, acquire, and authenticate some of the most rare and unique memorabilia treasures in the world. Millionaire Gallery is now global, represented in Miami, Key West, London, Switzerland, Dubai, Hong Kong, South Korea and Prague.
We are excited to have recently launched our “Rock Lives On” line of authenticated music art displays.
Everyone can draw inspiration from music and can connect with a song or tune. Music provides the soundtrack for our experiences, and this collectible art is some of the most inspiring and emotional for people. Music connects us to our past, be it romances, or memories of childhood hopes and dreams. Music energizes people, inspires them to dance, and makes their hearts sing. It brings back memories of what they were doing the first time they heard an artist, or a particular song. It transports them back to their first dance and passions that have endured the test of time.
