Up to 320 lots in the January 17th auction.  If you haven’t contacted me about consignments yet, please do.  More room!  Have a few more things on the way and pushing towards 400.  Would love to have 500 but we may not hit that high water mark.  Consignment deadline (for now) is December 15th.  Thanks again for your faith in the process and the auction.

Original artwork in our January 17 auction…

Original artwork from any set is always tough to find and valuable.  To find original artwork from the 1930’s is next to impossible.  And to find original artwork from the seminal 1930’s R69 Horrors of War set is incredible!  Our January 17th auction will have original artwork for card #128 from the R69 Horrors of War set from Gum, Inc.  The card is titled “Chinese Universities Flee From War” and it’s sized the same as the original card and graded by PSA and noted that it is original artwork by Charles Steinbacher.  Our other piece of original artwork is from the R157 Uncle Sam set for card #73 titled “Streamlined Drill”.  It’s slightly larger than the card and on board with a glassine over it.  Both have glue on the backs, appearing to have been mounted at one time–maybe in an album or some type of storyboard.  Both will start at $250 and are, of course, one of a kind items.

Auction Update #3
