WAVERLY, NY – Last month, former auto auction owner, Sam Gelt, joined Jeff Barber and his staff in Waverly as State Line Auto Auction celebrated 15 years as a General Motors-sponsored auction.

Gelt owned auctions in Mason City, Iowa, and Minneapolis. Soon after selling Minneapolis Northstar to Anglo-American in 1983, he met Jeff Barber at the first NAAA Convention Barber ever attended.
