Auction #225 - Part 2
When Hake's first started, all the items we offered were at set prices. These 'sales lists' were mailed to our rapidly expanding clientele. What transpired was collectors on the East Coast got the lists first and most of the items were sold by the time the rest of the US (prior to our global expansion) received theirs. So, within a year Hake's started conducting auctions to allow everyone a shot at acquiring items for their collections. The decades that followed saw the number of auctions we conducted increase while still offering priced material as well. However, in the past decade or so, auctions have become our sole focus. Not only do we present three premier cataloged auction events each year, we now routinely conduct online exclusive auctions of select material. This year we had a total of seven auctions and even more are planned for 2019, starting with a certified comic book auction in January. As for Americana and collectibles, we once again bring you an amazingly vast selection to choose from. The political section is filled with amazing rarities, some we have rarely (or never) offered over our 51 years. There are hundreds of comic books that include key first issues. Star Wars is headlined by more incredible items from the Russell Branton Collection. The original art section has everything from comic book covers to specialty pieces by some of the most sought-after names including The Hildebrandt Bros., Kirby, Ross and Timm. The posters you will find throughout the auction cover movies, concerts, war and much more, and represents the greatest assemblage of such ephemera we have ever offered. That just scratches the surface of all the types of collectibles you will find in the 2,518 lots this time around. There is a reason we call ourselves America's first and most diversified auction house, now with the emphasis firmly on 'Auction.'
