Live Game Collectibles Auction

Portland Retro Gaming Expo Auction
Auctioneers at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo auction in 2017.

Since 2010, the PRGE collectibles auction has been one of our most popular events.

The 2023’s live auction will occur on the evening of Saturday, October 14 on the Main Stage in Hall C (same spot where the Blockbuster World Video Game Championship happens during the day)!

Auction items can be seen at the Auction Stage starting around 6:30 PM.

This year we have a special treat! Ryan Niemiller - AGT's "Cripple Threat" - does a live comedy show on stage, starting around 7:00 PM!

We heard your feedback on last year's auction - so this year we will be back to the classic "LIVE in the room" format, with items being auctioned off in front of the audience.
