Dawson Reale – The Ultimate Collector

First year SPAD student Dawson Reale is the owner of The Ultimate Collector here in Sudbury. From a young age, Dawson has had a passion for both business and sports. The Sudbury native has been selling sports memorabilia online since 2008. What started as a hobby, has quickly grown into something much bigger. In 2011, he expanded his business into a physical storefront out of his father’s sports shop, Pro-Am Sports Excellence on Barry Downe Road in Sudbury. Authentic, Original and Affordable is his slogan and that is just what The Ultimate Collector offers.

Dawson attended Lockerby Composite School before coming to Laurentian University to study in the Sports Administration Program. SPAD encompasses everything that Dawson is passionate about; sports and business. In high school, he decided to step away from the sidelines, and pursue the business side of the industry.

It’s clear his family has had a huge influence on him. Dawson’s father Dominic Reale is also an avid sports fan, and he is very thankful as he has been instrumental in getting Dawson’s business to where it is today. Both businesses compliment each-other very well; Customers come into Pro-Am Sports Excellence looking for jerseys or other sport related items, and often end up leaving with unique sports memorabilia from Dawson’s part of the shop!
