Leadership Team

Jared and Camilla Kavlie
Jared and Camilla Kavlie Founders and Owners

Jared and Camilla started Pristine Auction in 2010 after becoming frustrated with the state of online sports auctions. Jared had been chasing autographs as a hobby and collecting for as long as he can remember, and sought a better way to buy and sell memorabilia. Operating out of their family home, the Kavlie’s did it all in the beginning: taking photos, creating auctions and shipping the items to the winning bidders. Jared draws from his education at Arizona Christian University where he graduated with honors with a Bachelors in Business Administration. Jared over sees the day-to-day operations of Pristine Auction, while Camilla manages the financial health of the company. Both continue to be directly involved with key decisions and strategies. They live in Phoenix with their three sons, Bentley, Hudson and Cooper.

Featured Collections

Ken Stabler Collection
Ken Stabler Collection

In 2016, we were honored to be chosen to auction the personal collection of NFL legend Ken Stabler. We were fortunate enough to be involved in the process from start to finish, meeting with the legend himself and the Stabler family and helping to organize the collection. Hearing Stabler's first-hand accounts of moments in NFL history made the process a unique and unforgettable one. The collection included many premium items including multiple MVP trophies, a game-worn rookie season Raiders helmet, multiple one-of-a-kind presentation footballs, Alabama varsity letter, and many more historic items from Mr. Stabler's career.
