Catalogue Archive

Sparks Auctions has been holding public auctions since 2007. Perhaps most noteworthy was our sale of a beautiful mint Twelve Penny Black, one of the classic rarities of Canada, for C$327,570 in September 2017, a record price for this stamp in a Canadian auction. We are also proud to have offered other prestige collections in the name sales you will find throughout our archive.

With full-colour illustrations, the catalogues archived below were created with collectors in mind. We have included all Sparks sales, assembled together with a list of any corrections discovered prior to the auction date (ie., announced on the auction floor), and a complete set of Prices Realized included at the end. You can also download just the Prices Realized for the sale. Right-click on any cover to download the PDF so it can be read on your computer, tablet, eReader, or other electronic device. File sizes are shown beneath.
