Blacksparrow Auctions has put together an amazing vintage toy and pop culture auction, to be held at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) on April 28, 2013. The auction will feature over 250 artifacts from popular culture as depicted in television, film, comics and children’s literature. Some of the toys, comics and artwork from the auction catalog will be on display at C2E2.
Featured items in the sale include the original 1978 Carbalon hand-painted hardcopy 15” Darth Vader figure with Lightsaber, given by Kenner to Sears to photograph for the 1978 Christmas catalog and the extremely rare Kenner Stretch Serpent, boxed and in mint condition.
Other offerings include original design artwork for children’s book covers and game pieces, such as the Brady Bunch paper doll book design prototype, Pink Panther jigsaw puzzles, Bugs Bunny sticker books, and many other one-of-a-kind items. In addition, there will be a selection of CGC-graded Silver Age comics, including Fantastic Four #1 and Amazing Spider-Man #1.
I’m still working my way through the catalog and have already tagged several items that I hope to bid on–there are some amazing, one-of-a-kind items here that you may never see again. You can view the catalog online, and sign up to bid at iCollector.
