Brendan came to SCP Auctions in July 2013 after working for Upper Deck just a short drive down the I-5. He was an avid card collector in his youth until playing sports took over. While he may be more proud of his team sports adolescent glory days in soccer, basketball and baseball, it was middle-distance running that gave him the opportunity to compete on the cross-country and track teams at Duke University (and, admittedly, to get into the school). He dabbled in the financial services industry before earning an MBA in Sports Business and turning his attention back to sports marketing and memorabilia.
Having grown up in the Bay Area, Brendan remains a loyal Giants, 49ers and Warriors fan, and is proud of his NorCal roots in spite of how soft SoCal has made him. He is most passionate about baseball having heard countless stories from his father, who pitched for the Dodgers organization in the 50’s and 60’s. A numbers guy and people person, Brendan feels lucky to be able to go to work each day living and breathing sports.
