HOW TO SELL
We connect sellers of the Rare and Remarkable with passionate buyers. RR Auction – selling, consigning collectibles and helping people share and obtain them since 1976. We have the international following to help you, too. Selling (also called consigning) with us is simple.
WHAT’S IT WORTH?
Whether you have one item or an entire collection, RR Auction will help you attain top dollar when you’re ready to sell. We understand the market for your valued collectibles, and maintain a superior clientele who’ll buy it at a price you won’t get anywhere else.
All formats of the Rare and Remarkable: autographs, historical artifacts, Sports, Hollywood, Space Exploration and more. Whether you have a signed baseball, or an iconic film prop, we’ll curate it for an auction where it will be best highlighted.
Every month RR conducts at least two auctions, one an 800+ item Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction, including a monthly featured section, and secondly, a specialty auction focused upon a single subject. Focused auctions include: Music, Space, and Sports.

We’re consistently exceeding our consignors’ expectations by garnering top prices.
For over 40 years we’ve considered our relationships with our consignors a partnership. Our goal is to work together to ensure you receive remarkable results.
With at least two sales every month and a variety of different themed sales throughout the year, we have many opportunities to curate your items for the best auction.
Once a year, RR Auction gathers together the best of the best – items so superlative, so historic, so unique, they belong in a class by themselves. We call this our Remarkable Rarities auction. The 2018 Remarkable Rarities collection features autographs and artifacts relating to the greatest minds of history – the founders who created a new nation of United States; the presidents who lead that country for more than two centuries; scientists, inventors and technology visionaries who explained our existing universe and then expanded it; artists and musicians who left indelible marks on their craft. Each museum-quality piece deserves special recognition, but here are some highlighted items being offered: Lot 3027: Significant find – An original Apple I Computer (see our feature section, pg. 42) More exciting offerings relating to Apple and Steve Jobs – autographs, a signed Macintosh Plus, several items from Apple’s pivotal 1982 year: Lots 3028, 3029, 3030, 3031, 3032, 3033.

RR Auction is preparing for our next Space auction and we’re seeking consignments now of your historic artifacts in the category.
Space is our strongest-performing category right now, with a lot of excitement around it. In 2017, more than half of our Top 10 sales at auction were items relating to space exploration. We are seeing high demand for space-related artifacts including flown items, autographs, signed documents, photos, training materials, clothing, equipment and hardware, and more.
