Included are Science & Technology-related personal correspondence, signed documents, photos and more. Innovators like physicists Robert Goddard and Andre-Marie Ampere; scientists Louis Pasteur and Pierre Curie; famous physicians like Jonas Salk; inventors Alexander Graham Bell and Samuel B. Morse; as well as items relating to the legendary minds of Albert Einstein, Carl Jung and Ivan Pavlov.

Fine Autographs and Artifacts
RR Auction is pleased to have the opportunity to present another impressive lot of Diana memorabilia in our auction in January 2018. We now seek additional items to join this sparkling collection, from any historical era, monarchy or country.
Our Royalty auction will be Jan. 10, 2018. Do you have royalty-related memorabilia you’d like to consign? We’re looking for signed photographs, royal wedding memorabilia, clothing and jewelry, letters, documents and decrees, as well as historical artifacts from any reign, any era, any country.
Five rings, five years—RR Auction is excited to present our fifth Olympics themed auction.
Fine Autographs and Artifacts
featuring U.S. Presidents
RR Auction is proud to offer truly Rare and Remarkable artifacts dating back to the very first president of the United States in the U.S. Presidents featured section of our February auction.
We have spectacularly preserved colonial-era items from the birth of a new republic founded on the principles of democracy—from George Washington to the writers and signers of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. This collection of documents, letters and more is a rare opportunity to view the history of the U.S. through the very people who made it.
The auction also includes handwritten items from noteworthy American presidents of the last 240 years, like Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and dozens more. Speeches, photographs, autographs and more capture the triumphs, turmoils and tragedies “the leader of the free world” has experienced throughout the history of the United States.
From the time he exploded onto the music scene in 1978 with his debut album For You, until his untimely death in 2016, Prince reigned over the landscape of modern music in a way few have before or after.
With his unparalleled virtuosity as a prolific singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, electric live performer and even fashion icon, Prince leaves behind a legacy of chart-topping and record-smashing success. His legions of fans worldwide still mourn the loss of his larger-than-life talent.
Following our record-breaking auctions in February and September 2017, there was still an outpouring of passionate interest from our buyers for more Prince items. RR Auction is pleased to present this new lot of exciting collectibles.
From stage-worn clothing and jewelry and personally owned items, to autographed photos and rare albums, to highly sought-after handwritten notes, our collection offers an intimate, up-close glimpse of an elusive musician who valued his personal privacy and kept his inner circle small.
Fine Autographs and Artifacts
featuring Military and Medal of Honor recipient
The historical value of collectibles in the genres of Military, Medal of Honor recipients, and battles from all eras cannot be overstated. Preserving documents and items from turning-point battles, wars and those who planned and executed those military maneuvers is a crucial curating endeavor.
For our next auction featuring Military, Medal of Honor recipients, we’re looking for items or entire collections to add to the event: Uniforms, rifles, revolvers, swords, sabers, scabbards, flags, documents, autographs, medals and citations, ephemera of all kinds. Also, any kind of battle-related documents, correspondences, maps – we’ve even had Robert E. Lee’s historic 1865 Farewell Address and surrender decree.
We seek items representing war heroes and military masterminds, from colonial America to current times.
Our next Military, Medal of Honor recipients auction will be March 7, 2018. Do you have items that our collectors of Military, Medal of Honor recipients, or other related memorabilia that you would like to consign? Contact us.
Tastemakers and risk takers of Pop Culture
In every lifetime, there are people or events that forever epitomize a moment in time. Whether it defines an entire decade or one poignant turning point, these emotions will be linked in our collective psyche to a specific time and place in our shared history. Our Pop Culture auction shares those people and treasured items, allowing us to relive those unforgettable moments of zeitgeist, from music, entertainment, art and current events.
The collectibles market sees pop culture as perhaps its most emotional, evocative category. Hollywood and the evolution of movies—from the golden age of sweeping epics and musicals, and into the high-tech, special effects world of today’s films—has created larger-than-life stars and devoted fans and collectors. Music leaves an indelible mark on everyone’s life; superstars like The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and the Prince of Pop, from Billie Holiday to Madonna, from blues to punk…genres and musicians are myriad. And pop art started with the New York artists Warhol, Lichtenstein, Rosenquist, Oldenburg and Jasper Johns, and continued into modern times with Haring, Koons and more. Contact us.
