About Us


RMY Auctions is an online/catalog auction site owned and operated by Rhys M. Yeakley. Rhys grew up in an Antique Collectors Home, started collecting Baseball Cards like most kids of the 1980's and turned it into a part time business throughout his childhood. He took some time off for undergraduate school at Utah State University where he played both Baseball and Hockey, and then refocused on the hobby while in Law School at Valparaiso University.

Sports Memorabilia has not only been his full-time profession since 2005, but his lifelong passion. He progressed from Baseball Cards to autographs and memorabilia as the Card industry became unexciting with the emphasis on high grades and limited numbers of sets. He discovered a love for antique photography (both Sports and Non-Sports) and has never looked back. Through the years he has developed the most comprehensive knowledge of vintage Sports Photography fueled by his passion for the hobby and his handling of over ONE MILLION photos.

The goal at RMY Auctions is to provide a venue for collectors of Antique Photography to buy items with the peace of mind that the leading expert in the Country has personally examined the items for sale, and stands behind each and every item with a LIFETIME GUARANTEE of Authenticity! We are the first Auction House in the Country to personally Guarantee the Authenticity of our items and the consignments we sell. We are also the first company to GRADE and EVALUATE the images we sell for convenience and peace of mind in purchasing via an internet based venue.
