Comb. Verbree (NL)
Youngsters of their best breeders
Co and Piet Verbree have been among the leading names in pigeon racing in the Netherlands as well as internationally. They created a very strong pigeon breed for themselves, which proved very successful in other lofts as well. A few of this breed's precious birds will be offered for sale from 6th of February until 19th of February. The old Janssen x Van Loon x Koopman x Schaerlaeckens foundation was strengthened in recent years with invaluable pigeons of Jan Hooymans, Cor Leijtens and Dirk Van Dyck, just to name a few. PIPA convinced the champions to auction a select group of special pigeons from their very best breeders and their best racing birds of today. Included in this auction are brothers/sisters and youngsters of the outstanding NL14-1651260 Samanta, Olympiad Pigeon for The Netherlands in the middle distance (she was raced only in 2015!). This is one of the leading lofts in The Netherlands.
Youngsters of his best breeders
Ivan Baetens is renowned for his marvelous collection of national ace pigeons. He made some excellent investments together with Joost De Smeyter, including for instance Witpen Rivaldo (1st Nat. ace pigeon extreme long distance KBDB 2012), Peggy (1st Nat. ace pigeon extreme long distance KBDB 2011), Elsie (1st Nat. ace pigeon longer middle distance KBDB 2013), Pierre Mistral (1st Nat. ace pigeon extreme long distance), and Nico (1st Nat. ace pigeon longer middle distance YLs KBDB 2014). That leaves us with a highly valued collection of pigeons. On top of that, Ivan won a 2nd and 5th national ace pigeon KBDB longer middle distance in 2017. In this exceptional auction we bring you youngsters of some exceptional pigeons, from one of Belgium's best pigeon families!
Cees Schroevers (NL)
Top class racing birds and youngsters of his best breeders
Cees is the youngest of the Schroevers Brothers and he comes from a family of pigeon fanciers. He has been one of the top ranked pigeon fanciers in Zeeland for nearly 25 years but he has also done quite well nationally, even winning national championship titles. His fantastic pigeon breed has been breeding new champions time and time again, and among his very best pigeons are Azelio x Drie Vijfjes, Superboy 755, Kyara, and Dream Lady. Each one of them had a great career both in the racing and the breeding loft. This is no doubt a high quality auction.
Youngsters of his best breeders
Michel Verweij and Peter De Haan have been among the greatest champions in the Dutch marathon competition for a few years now. Their international first prize from Agen was a crowning achievement, although it was just the icing on the cake. Stock breeders Toon and Barry developed into iconic birds, and many of the team's prize winners were not sold but instead bred new generations of champions in the breeding loft. Verweij-De Haan is now selling a select group of pigeons bred from their best racing and breeding birds on PIPA.
Leo Heremans Collection
This combination consists of pigeon doctors Stephan Göbel and Hans van der Sluis, and Stephan's father Dick-Jan Göbel. Together they have a wonderful collection of Heremans pigeons. Their Blue Bullet in particular proved highly talented, having bred not one but two National ace pigeons and tens of first prize winners. And the other Leo Heremans descendants in their collection proved highly capable as well. We are selling pigeons from the very bloodlines that made Leo from Vorselaer a world famous fancier.

Gebr Scheele (NL)
Youngsters of his best breeders
The Scheele brothers had another fantastic season in 2017. Their most notable result was without doubt their two first prizes NPO in just two weeks' time. Racing bird Lars was victorious in the NPO races from La Souterraine, and days later Herman claimed a first prize NPO from Limoges. This was an impressive feat from a team that has been a leading name in The Netherlands for many years now. Their success story is largely founded on their stock breeder Superboy. We present to you this young birds' auction that is mainly themed around Superboy; and we are selling youngsters from his other stars as well.
Cor de Heijde (NL)
Young birds from all of his best breeders
Cor de Heijde and the Klamper dynasty are inevitably linked, and rightly so. Cor won a 1st National Perpignan with a youngster of Klamper already in 1997. We are now 20 years later, and the descendants of this phenomenon continue to claim national victories, not just in Cor's loft but for many other fanciers both at home and abroad. Such renowned breeders as Perpignan-Doffer and Don MIchel are now the leading names in the breeding loft, along with some more recent superstars, including Marianne (1st Nat. St. Vincent 2014), Blue Dream (1st Nat. Barcelona Hens) and Kleine Blauwe (1st Nat. St. Vincent 2015). Youngsters from each of these renowned birds will be sold in auction.
Crehan & O’Connor (UK)
Youngsters of their best breeders
John Crehan became a highly renowned pigeon fancier thanks to an extensive list of victories. His achievements are nearly impossible to match; he is simply outstanding in the Federations, and he is equally successful in the Central Lancashire combine, where he claimed four wins against thousands of pigeons in 2017. His Jan Hooymans pigeon collection plays a crucial role in his racing loft, and so do the descendants of his renowned Mystique. We are now selling youngsters of all of his best pigeons.

Barcelona Special
British allrounder Mark Gilbert gained international fame with his excellent results in the international classics, which include his national victories from Pau and St. Vincent in 2016. It has been Mark's lifelong dream to take the international first prize from Barcelona, and he obtained some super class bloodlines to achieve that goal. Among them is Kannibaal Barcelona of Etienne Meirlaen, 1st Interprov. & 4th Int. Barcelona winner and already the sire of a 1st Nat. Agen, as well as Golden Barcelona, 2nd Int. Barcelona pigeon 2012-2014 and Golden Wing winner in 2014. Mark is now selling youngsters of these renowned Barcelona champions in a prestigious PIPA auction.
