Memorabilia Evaluation and Research Services (MEARS) was founded in order to assist collectors in making informed purchase decisions. In doing so, we instituted many policies, techniques, and procedures that have become industry standards; although seldom replicated to our exacting standards. As MEARS built collections and collector confidence, we also built relationships at both the individual and institutional level. The natural extension of this unrivaled competency, customer service, and expertise was to help these same individuals and institutions grow and manage their collections. Whether buying or selling, the MEARS cliental have and continue to look to the organization as the single entity that can address all of their needs. Whether it is in helping celebrities or families to liquidate life long collections or enabling lifelong collectors to find and acquire that “last one special artifact” or item to complete a set, people around the world have to come to know they need look no further than MEARS.
