Past Events

CEI sports continuously participates in many exciting events, and we consult and personally arrange and execute many of the local events held at:

Sports depot, Collectors Den, national shows such as Tri Star,  Finest Collectibles, Fanattics, Mead Chasky Sports, Sports Gallery, The Cincinnati Reds, the Reds Hall of Fame, the Florence Freedom, and Cincy Card shows. There are many high schools that were also involved with our services as well, for their sports night “Special guests”.

We continue to offer this level of client representation and service, to all of those entities going forward.

We always welcome new opportunities to offer these consultative services to other potential new clients.

Our involvement is usually not overtly seen by the public, but most of the veteran collectors and participants in these events, know of our “Behind the scenes” efforts that we continously perpetuate in the local and regional markets.

Our involvement in these efforts takes great amounts of time and energy. And we pride ourselves in maintaining our relationships with the players-celebrities that we have known for many years.

We are grateful for each and everyone of our opportunities to create the “One on one” experiences, that most sports and entertainment collectors seek.


This was a great set of years for interesting projects !
First off,  our client and friend Pete Rose, had the fastest growing in popularity commercial for Skechers USA. What a great opportunity to work with such a class act as the team at Skechers.
We have continued on the strong path of growth in our charitable auction consignments business, as well as our graphics and large scale printing business.
We added new equipment that continues to keep us at the “state of the art” level of technology and quality. Some of things we accomplished earlier this year are :


Reds Hall of Fame 3rd Floor Entrance Graphics first quarter 2014

Reds Clubhouse 2014 Hall of Fame 3rd Floor Graphics 2014
Holy Grail outfield wall acquisition from GABP and interior updates during 2014 and many more commercial and retail places like Longnecks Bars in Northern Kentucky and a roll out of mascot prints in the Northern Kentucky Skyline Chili restaurants.


2013 was amazing year for us as we created and participated in many signings and live events for many companies in Cincinnati, Moeller-Montgomery, Sports Depot in Newport KY, the guys in West Chester OH as well as Chicago, Cooperstown, Wabash, Toledo, Indianapolis and Baltimore-Richmond.

We represent many key players and create many opportunities and ideas that sometimes just don’t speak enough about everything that we do to make these “events” happen.

The “Nasty Boys” project finally came to maturity this year. We put them ALL together for the very first time and gave it a go with the Sports Gallery gang.This was a 23 old idea that finally made it to the collector, so as to finish off those 1990 items missing key signatures from their items. It was such a success that, we are going to do it again soon….

We are going to do some more exciting things again this year, and hope that you all get a chance to participate! There will be another Nasty Boys signing and it will be during 2014 in Cincinnati-details to follow soon.

There will be more 1990 baseball veterans as well as some Big Red Machine Era veterans that will be quietly mixed in as well…. All in all we did over 35 signings in 2013 with Rose, Bench, Perez, Morgan, Griffey, Foster, Concepcion, Geronimo,Chapman, Bruce, Votto, Braggs, Davis, Jackson, Duncan, Sabo, and a few more.We hope to see you all in 2014 at any of our direct or indirect events.
Since 1982, we have been the best at what we do, guaranteed!!
