To boldly go: Our first SCIENCE FICTION auction
RR Auction is excited to present its inaugural Sci-Fi auction in April, and we’re seeking all kinds of items that span the definition of the category.
The term “sci-fi” encompasses a multifaceted universe – from the dystopian futures fretted over by early 20th century authors, filmmakers and television writers; to space exploration and life on other planets; to all kinds of monsters – mutated in nature or created by mad scientists.
Sci-fi collectibles come in a vast range of mediums – novels, comic books and trading cards, film and television props, autographs and signed ephemera of all kinds. From cast-signed items to screen-worn costumes, we’re interested in all ideas. There are historical tie-ins to consider, as well: Next year is the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein,” published March 11, 1818. It’s also been 60 years since “The Amazing Colossal Man” began a string of films that addressed nuclear war fallout, mutations and cautionary tales.
There are also sci-fi and outer-space concept artists like Virgil Finlay, Paul Lehr, Frank Kelly Freas and Chesley Bonestell, as well as early pulp/sci-fi cover concept art (think Amazing Stories!, Fantastic Adventures, etc.). More key names in the category: Robert Heinlein, H.G. Wells, Isaac Asimov, George Orwell, Ray Bradbury; Jules Verne, A.C. Clarke, Aldous Huxley, Rod Serling. From “Metropolis” to “Blade Runner,” from Leonard Nimoy to Captain Nemo, tell us what you have.
Our first Science Fiction auction will be April 11, 2018. Do you have sci-fi memorabilia you’d like to consign? We need your help to make this first auction a signature event for science fiction collectors worldwide. Consign now.
