Mastro Auctions: Looking for Former Employees
 
Greetings. I'm a vintage card collector (30+ years) working on a nonfiction book detailing what occurred at Mastro Auctions. Am trying to get background information on what it was like to work at the AH during its heyday (1996-2008). If you would be willing to speak to me on the record OR on background only, please provide me with contact info and I'll follow up.
Or, does anyone know how to reach any of these people?
My objective is to document a full and accurate story. Thanks for any help you would be willing to provide. I'm Chicago-based.

Mark Theotakis, a convicted Mastro felon, now works at Heritage.

As for victims of these crooks, this site is full of them, myself included.

Mr. Allen is in Pekin, IL, or was at last report.

There are plenty of rocks one might look under for some of the former staff.

From what I understand, because Doug claimed to the court he was not only a crook but also a drunk, he is eligible for the Residential Drug Abuse Program which could have him out of jail at the end of this year. Which means you should all keep your hands on your wallets when that occurs.

I guess a job at Heritage awaits him as well!

I can't believe Heritage would hire somebody like that from Mastro's. Don't they think there's no one else qualified out there without someone with a criminal record. You go to jail come out and there's a job waiting for you in the same field that you got busted for. Amazing.

I will put in a good word for Theo. Personally I think he is the epitome of good people can make bad mistakes. I have made bad ones before too and am thankful for a second chance.

Simplest terms, he know the people with the good buyers and material are and Heritage thinks he can help them get those consignments/buyers to do more business with Heritage. Business decision, pure and simple
