"I'm proud to say 2021 has been the greatest year to date for the Pop Culture department at Bruneau & Co.," said Travis Landry, the company's Director of Pop Culture and an auctioneer. "Looking back over the past six years, it's incredible to see where we have grown and how the market has grown."
"This will be the fourth Pop Culture sale of the year, with two more scheduled before the new year," said Bruneau & Co. president and owner Kevin Bruneau, adding, "I'm sure as always it's going to draw a crowd. Comic and toy auctions are by far some of the most exciting we have when it comes to having an active and energetic crowd."
The auction will feature rare comic books, Pokémon items and TCG (Trading Card Game) collectibles, but there are a few surprises in the mix as well, like a large, single-owner collection of Steiff animals and dolls (including two Emile Jumeau dolls), which will be offered at the end of the sale. Also sold will be Mattel Hot Wheels redline.
The sale's expected top lot is a copy of Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four #1 (November 1961), graded CGC 4.5 (estimate: $15,000-$20,000)
"The Fantastic Four #1 walked through the door during our weekly Tuesday morning appraisals in the hands of the original owner," Landry recounted. "The best part was, he hated it. He was a big Western fan, but he wanted to see what 'Marvel funny books' were all about. It was the only Marvel book he kept."
The Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers gallery is located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, Rhode Island. Internet bidding will be via LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Bidsquare.com, bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com and the mobile app "Bruneau & Co." on iTunes or GooglePlay.
