What would eventually become Nate D. Sanders Auctions was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1986 as "Nate's Autographs." For the most part, the company’s initial focus was on inexpensive Hollywood signed photographs and other memorabilia. Nate D. Sanders included these goods in a color catalog that was mailed to a relatively few exclusive local clients. That modest beginning didn't last long, however, and over the intervening years, Nate moved the company to Los Angeles, California and it has since done millions of dollars in business, which means a pretty impressive expansion these days.
Nate D. Sanders Auctions currently has a reputation as an industry leader when it comes to rare documents, autographs and other memorabilia and collectibles. He has been conducting auctions in Los Angeles since 1990, which means he’s been working at ground zero for movie memorabilia for more than a quarter-century. He now holds major auctions on a monthly basis and Nate D. Sanders himself now has a strong reputation as an expert with regard to sports, historical and Hollywood memorabilia.
