Scott Lovejoy Chief Pathfinding Officer

C. Scott Lovejoy

“Head Honcho” – Owner and Chief Pathfinder
With organizational skills far beyond those of mortal men, Scott makes sure clients get the best bang for the buck and customers always get the best collectible finds. He enjoys Hitchcock, anything single-malt, Hammer Horror and Savoy Brown. He is inspired by his talented wife Megan, his furry kids Ripley and Maisie, and he has faith, though it’s dwindling, that Star Citizen is going to be awesome. @b2pcollect

Pete Johnson Senior Evaluator Looking at a collection of GI Joes

Pete Johnson

“The Family Man” – Production Manager, Evaluator, Research
Pete is a Collectibles evaluation specialist with over 30 years of expertise in the pop culture collectibles industry. Pete has an array of knowledge in many different pop culture disciplines including vintage toys, comic books, historical and entertainment related memorabilia, and much more. He is also one of the few people who gets to say things like “James Bond 007 Scuba Flippers” as part of his day job. Pete enjoys watching his two kids grow up (too fast) and loves the Flash, Green Lantern, and the 1966 Adam West Batman.

Denny McDermott

“Mister Mint” – Photography, Shipping, Comic Relief
The shop just wouldn’t be the same without the presence of one Mr. Mint. Nobody really knows what he does, but he’s always entertaining while he does it. Denny is either a precautionary tale or a man who’s discovered the true secret to life, and we aren’t sure which it is.

Chris Walker

“Aubergine Power Ranger” – Customer Service, Lead Blogger

Chris is the lead blogger and research assistant with a sometimes-frightening encyclopedic knowledge of collecting and pop culture. He is an avid fan of the Justice Society, Prince and the Revolution, and the films of David Cronenberg. Check out Chris’ most recent blogs here.

Greg Turner

Greg Turner

“King of the Fanzines” – Auctioneer, Archivist, Music and Comic Art Historian

Greg writes the columns “Fabulous Finds” and “Retro Reviews” for the Back to the Past website! You’ll spot him at nearly every live auction, and in his off time he’ll be spinning classic garage rock on vinyl, wherever he can find a turntable.  Greg’s Posts

Megan Lovejoy

“The Floor Artist” – Wall Art, Whiteboard Art, Art Art, Heart and Soul

From the 50-foot Joker on the store’s rooftop to the 30-foot Smaug banner hanging in our warehouse, it’s clear that Megan’s motto is “Go big or…well, just go big.” She is an ever-present fount of bubbly support for everything we do at Back to the Past and we love to be wowed by whatever she’s got planned next.

Andy Cirinesi

 “The Don” – Founder, Now Retired
Andy has been in the collectibles business since 1981. His many years in the field have given him a comical jaded weariness of life that people seem to love. His interests include King Kong, the Creature from the Black Lagoon and the shooter on the grassy knoll. His penchant for accumulating things usually outstrips his interest in selling them. Last seen wandering off into the western sunset, mumbling “I gotta get out…I gotta get out…”

Back to the Past Collectibles is the premier auction house for vintage collectibles and memorabilia of all kinds!

We offer treasures from both our own warehouse and other consignors from across the country.

Main event auctions are held in our physical showroom (COVID-safety permitting) and are broadcast online via, so you can attend whether or not you’re from our local neighborhood. Most auction events have a 1-hour inspection and registration window, so you can take your time looking over the lots.

The buzz you’ve heard is real. It’s a lot of fun to attend our onsite live events, so we invite you to come and check it out!

If you’re unable to join us in person on auction day, we highly recommend using Proxibid to place absentee bids and attend online.
