The Ronald Hoskins Archive
Known in the collecting world as the “Assassinologist,” Father Ronald Hoskins devoted most of his personal life toward collecting and archiving anything and all relating to John F. Kennedy, the Kennedy Family and the JFK Assassination. We were honored to be chosen by the heirs to his estate to represent thousands of items sold at auction.
"We are so pleased so many people enjoy, discover, watch, learn and bid on the treasures you thoroughly research, timelessly study, thoughtfully display and respectfully curate! We are so happy to be partnering with you to present our Uncle's lifetime passions to the world! We are always watching the auctions each and every week and the closing moments are very exciting!"
The Michael Melet Archive
A life long collector we were honored to represent hundreds of items at auction for the Melet family. Michael began his collection during the formative years of the autograph collecting hobby turning into a full blown industry sourcing the vast majority of his collection from pioneer autograph dealer Charles Hamilton.
“We worked with Jared on a fairly large consignment and he exceeded every expectation. It was recently time to liquidate my aging parents’ large autograph collection and we explored many options. Ultimately we picked Jared and are glad we did. He got top dollar and his customer service was A+. He earned our trust and we’d work with him again in a snap!”

“I have worked on some very large scale autograph archive acquisitions over the years with Jared and the team at JG. I have sourced numerous archives, containing ten’s of thousands of autographs which JG has been the final destination for. JG is one of my top 'go to' sources when I am looking to sell archives of significant scope and size.”
“We have partnered with JG on numerous projects for over a decade. When it comes to large groups Jared leads the industry with the ability to combine speed and accuracy. He has a wide scope of expertise and has always been super conscious of authenticity. But mostly he is honest and loyal!"
“As a long-time representative for dozens of professional athletes including legendary UCLA coach John Wooden and NBA Hall of Famer Bill Sharman, my personal archive of autographed items numbered well over 20,000 individual pieces. Nearly every item was signed during private and public signings spanning several decades. When it came time to transition the archive over to a new owner I chose to work with JG Autographs who painstakingly evaluated the collection in full and made a fair and respectable offer for a singular purchase. The process was smooth and seamless and I certainly would recommend JG if you are looking to sell a collection or archive of significant scope or size.”
