This episode takes a deep dive into the world of Entertainment Auctions which have EXPLODED in recent years thanks to the good ol’ Internet. The panel discusses the processes of putting on a massive 2-day pop culture auction from the acquisition of items to “SOLD!”, how being a fan first drives the business, and the preservation and curation of historical film and tv props/art. Whether or not you’re ready to bid, this podcast and these auctions will have something for you even if you’re simply just a fan of nerdly pop culture. Van Eaton Galleries’ “Disneyland: The First 65 Years” auction is August 15 & 16 (vegalleries.com) and Prop Store’s “Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction: Treasures of Film and Television” is August 26 & 27 (propstore.com). Both will be viewable online and really fun to watch!
