Hobby veteran Chris Porter, the President of Superior Sports Auctions, has announced that he's resigned his position and that a new company, "Chris Porter Sports Auctions," will commence operations on June 1st, 2004. Based in beautiful Traverse City, Michigan, the new company will concentrate on all sports collectibles with a specific expertise in cards made in the years 1880 - 1980.

Porter stated that "I had an extremely enjoyable time as the President of Superior Sports Auctions but feel that it's time for me to set out on my own. I want to thank everyone at Superior, Collectors Universe and Spectrum Numismatics and wish them all the very best in the future."

"C.P.S.A." will be both a retail business and auction company. Three catalog auctions will be held annually with regular direct and eBay sales as well. The company's first auction will be held in early October, with a consignment deadline of July 30th, 2004.
