🏈 Madden NFL 25 cover: cllct’s picks

🗞️ Cutting up historical relics opens up 'whole new category of collecting'

John Reznikoff has sold everything from a swatch of the curtain from Ford’s theatre the night of President Lincoln’s assassination to a stained and torn polo shirt that once belonged to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Each piece comes encapsulated in a slab the size of a matchbook and offers collectors a chance to own history at a fraction of the price.

While University Archives deals in all matter of historical items, Reznikoff’s unique approach to relics has completely altered the way collectors view the industry.

Reznikoff’s relics, a collection of items consigned through his auction house and acquired over the years by the man himself, are as comprehensive of an overview of history as one could possibly imagine to find in one collection.
