Lawsuit filed over missed payment on sports photo collection

Posted By on Mon, Jul 21, 2014 at 6:55 AM

Arkansas Business reports on a lawsuit filed against John Rogers of North Little Rock, who's won fame as a collector and reseller of photos and other memorabilia of famous athletes.

The lawsuit said John Rogers and his Sports Card Plus Inc. had missed an $85,000 payment on a $1.35 million acquisition of baseball images in 2012, with about $765,000 still owed. Some of the collection has been resold and records indicate some potential problems related to copyrights on the images. Rogers didn't respond to requests for comments.
