Sports Memorabilia Australia has been retailing, auctioning and valuing sporting antiques since 1993. I am the official valuer for the National Sports Museum, Bradman Foundation, Australian Rugby Archives and SCG Museum. We provide valuations to insurance companies and the general public. I am an accredited valuer for the Commonwealth Government’s Cultural Gifts Programme. I co – wrote a History of the Australian cricket cap – The Baggy Green in 2009 – this has won several accolades. I now also provide an acquisition service to Museums securing items of sporting memorabilia from athletes, whom the Museum is wishing to promote and honour as a part of their local sports-people Hall of Fame.

Museums & Galleries of NSW helps small-medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres create exciting experiences for visitors and, through this, thriving local NSW communities. We don't run museums, galleries and cultural centres but we care about those who do. We develop their skills, connect them with others in the industry, provide funding, point visitors their way, and give them access to ground-breaking exhibitions.

Museums & Galleries of NSW is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.

Museums & Galleries of NSW
(M&G NSW) provides programs and services improving the visitor experience in small to medium museums, galleries and Aboriginal cultural centres across NSW.
