Philip Weiss Auctions back up and running after Hurricane Sandy Philip Weiss Auctions – down but definitely not out following Hurricane Sandy – has a full slate of auctions planned for the rest of winter and early spring, at its new gallery in Lynbrook, New York.
set, mint-on-card Star Wars action figures, a 1970s GI Joe doll, Britains toy soldiers, high-grade Dime Store figures and Marklin fire pieces.
The trains category will be highlighted by a
Bing locomotive and Clockwork locomotive, and examples from makers such as American Flyer, Lionel, Ives and Marklin, plus some brass engines and early European train stations. Over 50 lots will be reserved for on-site bidding only.
The March 30 auction could very well end up being the best of the three. Sports items will feature a 1947 game scorecard signed by baseball legend Jackie Robinson, a super rare copy of the book History of Colored Baseball by Sol White, several single-owner card collections and other examples of rare vintage sports memorabilia, the demand for which continues to skyrocket.
Animation art will include a 200+-piece single owner animation collection and material from the estate of Hardie Gramatky, the noted American artist and writer and author of the Little Toot children's books series. Items will feature a Little Toot original animation cel on a master background (signed and inscribed by Walt Disney) and complete Little Toot original book art.
The April poster auction (when a date is finalized for it) will feature a single-owner high-end collection of circus and Buffalo Bill posters, World Wars I and II posters (to include a rare and unique 1890s U.S. Navy recruiting poster), a collection of minstrel posters, and books and ephemera relating to L. Frank Baum, author of the world-renowned Wizard of Oz books series.
