CROTON-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. – Already regarded as one of the leading vintage toy and collectible auction houses in the United States, Serious Toyz is seeking to cement its reputation with Auction #55, a 1,300-lot colossus featuring high-grade antique and vintage items in dozens of collecting categories. The auction is now live and
ends April 5 (for character and classic collectibles) and April 6 (for toy vehicles). Offered are outstanding groups of vintage robots and space toys, Barbies, 1960s rock posters, pressed-steel vehicles, cast-iron toys, slot cars, character toys and collectibles, advertising and retail displays and more.
“This sale is certain to appeal to all kinds of collectors,” said Tom Miano, owner of Serious Toyz, based in Croton-on-Hudson, N.Y. “We have real in-depth offerings in many categories, with items that will speak to beginners through advanced collectors. And even with the wide variety of collecting categories, the common denominators are condition and rarity,” Miano added.
The sale can be boiled down to three primary categories – Classic Toys and Collectibles, Character Toys and Collectibles and Toy Vehicles. The Classic Toys and Collectibles category is led by a nice group of vintage space toys, including almost 40 robots, many in the original boxes. Toy guns will feature Western, spy and a dozen early space and ray guns. The vintage Barbies are from a single longtime collection and include a Mint-in-Box Ponytail #1 and more than 30 early outfits, all complete on vintage dolls.
Advertising collectibles will be led by a huge and rare 1950 Greyhound bus painted plaster display, a 1960s Tri-Ang “Spot-On” die-cast cars retail display and a 1950s Coca-Cola battery-operated penny bank, Mint-in-Box.
