Farewell to Roger Gross (1938-2013)
We received the sad news that our dear friend and colleague Roger Gross passed away. Roger died peacefully at his home last Friday, January 4th, 2013. He was not only a truly wonderful person but someone world-wide admired for his deep knowledge of opera and classical music and the business of music memorabilia.
We met him many times at the Metropolitan Opera, and to do business. It was always a pleasure to do so. He was not only one of the biggest experts in music autographs in the world but a huge fan of singing and singers. A collector himself, he had one of the largest inventories of autographs in the world, and was a true inspiration for many of us in the business.
He will certainly be missed. Read his NY Times obituary here
