NEW YORK - Nov. 20, 2023 - PRLog -- Poster Auctions International's (PAI) third sale of the year, on November 12, finished at $1,650,500. Rare Posters Auction XCI proved bidders' vested commitment to bolstering their collections.

The cool November morning began with a flurry of interest from a small crowd of interested buyers in the gallery. "It is always my great pleasure to see collectors at the gallery," Jack Rennert, President of PAI, mused. "This auction welcomed both regular clients and several new faces. For me, there is no better feeling than watching someone fall in love with a poster—and clients at this sale certainly demonstrated passion for the medium."

The sale started off strong with a small but choice selection of Winter Images. Roger Broders' 1930 Les Sports d'Hiver / St. Pierre de Chartreuse sold for $9,375 (est. $7,000-$9,000) and Martin Peikert's MOB swiftly surpassed its estimate of $2,000-$2,500 for a win of $5,500.

All prices quoted include the buyer's premium.

The rarest and the most iconic images for transit sold well on auction day. The perennial favorite, the ca. 1895 Cycles Gladiator, by an anonymous artist, sold for $37,500. Malcolm A. Strauss' 1908 Automobile Club of America / Savannah Race sparked a lot of interest in collectors, leading to a winning bid of $13,750 (est. $8,000-$10,000). The top aviation lot was Jean Jacquelin's 1930 Aéropostale / Au Maroc Par Avion, which sold for $4,000 (est. $3,000-$4,000).

Several War & Propaganda posters saw notable sales. The never-before-seen 1885 National Soldiers Reunion, by an anonymous artist, was won for $5,000 against an estimate of $2,000-$2,500. James Montgomery Flagg's iconic 1917 Wake Up, America! was secured for $6,875; Joseph C. Leyendecker's rare 1917 Get in the Game went for $3,500 against its estimate of $2,000-$2,500; G. Kibardin's 1931 Lenin Flagship Dirigible Squadron was claimed for $6,250 (est. $2,500-$3,000).
