The Winter Comic Book & Toy auction was a collaborative effort between Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, Altered Reality Entertainment and Travis Landry, Bruneau & Co.'s Director of Pop Culture, who said, "The day was strong overall and great stuff sold well. Star Wars proved to be a highly coveted topic of the day with nearly everything exceeding expectations and estimates."
Since its inception, Bruneau & Co. has partnered with Altered Reality Entertainment (the parent company of Rhode Island Comic Con) to organize toy, comic, and collectible auctions, bringing Pop Culture to a live auction setting. The December auction featured hundreds of rare graded comics, generous key book lots, many Marvel and D.C. comics, and, of course, Star Wars items.
Top achievers in the Star Wars category included a great example 1977 Kenner 12 back A Luke Skywalker figure, graded CAS 80 ($1,875); a 1977 Kenner 12 back A Darth Vader figure graded CAS 80+; and a 1978 Kenner Cantina Adventure multi-pack with Greedo and Blue Snaggletooth (dented toe variant) figures, graded CAS 75+ ($2,250). All three lots were housed in CAS cases.
Kevin Bruneau, the president of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, commented, "The comic sale was a great way to end the auction year for us at Bruneau & Co. Comics proved again to be a necessary staple in the auction market. It draws a guaranteed crowd for sure both online and in the gallery."
