A Solid Reputation

For over 30 plus years, 500,000++ autographs have been signed in our presence by 100’s of celebrities and athletes autographs that have been officially witnessed and sold by our company. CEI Sports is the only company that took the initiative to create and produce the Official 20 year Reunion of the 1976 Cincinnati Reds in November of 1996 at the Cincinnati Convention Center to celebrate and honor that GREAT TEAM. This valiant effort by CEI Sports, was during a time when the importance of the Reds team history had little to no meaning to the Reds marketing and Front office. Over 10,000 loyal fans supported this milestone event. Some Reds employees have said that this strong showing of fan support for this CEI Sports driven event, was the tipping point that sparked the Cincinnati Reds Ballclub to organize and launch the first REDSFEST in 1997! Our reputation in the industry for over 25 plus years has been second to none. We provide quality products, timely service and that extra mile to make it a special experience when dealing with our company. We continue to search the sports photography market for new images and currently own over 50,000 negatives of baseball, football, hockey, golf, wildlife and americana.


We guarantee all our products to be 100% authentic.

Our personal guarantee of quality is your ultimate collecting pleasure!
