About Us

We are a professional sports memorabilia consignment company dedicated to helping raise funds for charity.  Established in 2011, we have helped raise over $6.5 million for various charities throughout the United States.  We offer top quality, fully authenticated, autographed sports memorabilia on a 100% consignment basis for fundraising events.  Not only do we provide the memorabilia, we will host your auction for FREE!  Our services cover Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas and surrounding areas.

We offer a NO RISK, NO COST, PROFESSIONAL service that is second to none! 

We work with hundreds of charities each year.  Here are just some of the organizations that we have had the pleasure to work with.
  • Fairways for Warriors
  • Texas Children's Hospital 
  • Fellowship of Christian Athletes
  • American Heart Association
  • United Way
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters Houston
  • American Cancer Society
  • National Kidney Foundation
  • Boys And Girls Club of America
  • Toys of Tots
  • Birdies for The Brave
  • Wounded Warriors
  • The Jimmy Fund
  • ALS Foundation
  • Susan G. Komen
  • Boys & Girls Country
  • Provide 25-50 (based on attendance) of quality, fully authenticated, autographed sports memorabilia on a 100% consignment basis.  This means there is No Cost to you.
  • We will Donate up to Two Items to your event and all of the proceeds for those items go directly to the Charity/Organization.
  • We provide an employee to bring the items out, set up, supply bid sheets, and work with your event to generate interest in all of the auction items, including any items you may already have.  Again, at No Cost to you.
  • Prior to the event, you are sent a list of items with our cost and the opening bid (20-25% above cost).  ALL proceeds above and beyond our cost goes directly to the Charity/Organization.
    ◦Ex.  If an item has a cost of $200 with a minimum bid of $250, and that item receives the minimum bid, the charity/organization receives $50.  If that same item receives a bid of $700, then the charity/organization receives $500!!
    ◦Typically, our opening bids are half of the retail value, so there is plenty of room for bidding to raise more funds for your charity!
  • At the end of the event, we round up all of the bid sheets, determine the winners, take payment and distribute all of the auction items to the winners.  Once we have collected all of the payments, we will assess the total amount that goes to the charity/organization.  Within one week, you will receive a check from Diamonds in the Rough for the total amount raised for your event!
