Dallas – Multiple auction records were shattered in The Glynn and Suzanne Crain Science Fiction Collection Auction at Heritage Auctions Aug. 13-14 in Dallas, Texas. The White Glove auction totaled $2,407,620, exceeding the pre-auction estimate by more than $1 million, and boasted a sparkling 100% sell-through rate by value and by lots sold.
Here are the auctions I'll be watching this week:
