BATMAN AUCTION NEWS - Hake's Americana & Collectibles Goes Batman Crazy in November!
If you are a Vintage Batman Toy Collector then right now is the time to check out the "Hake's Americana & Collectibles" website. They are currently running a few very amazing LOTS of super-rare Batman items. The photos of treasures shown here are only a small example. The 1st pic shows a few pieces from the BATMAN EXECUTIVE DESK SET, which, they are selling in it's original box. Now, to be honest, this is not the rarest item they have... but it's very sought after by Serious Bat-Collectors because it's so cool & it is actually very hard to find. I've been collecting for 25+ years & I don't have it, ha! Speaking of RARE, the next piece is practically a "Toy Museum Piece"! No hype intended, this is a "One of a Kind" item that you may never see again. This is the original Injection Mold Piece that was used to create a rubber-vinyl head for a set of Batman Slippers back in the 1960's. Next up, and pretty darn RARE too ( ha! ), is this BATGIRL SUPER-QUEENS DOLL. This was made by the Ideal Toy Company in 1967. This toy line didn't sell very well back then & today these figures are highly sought after. This example has her original batarang & her costume with cowl is really nice! OK, Do you remember the BAT-MANGA JAPANESE BATMAN Book created by Chip Kidd a couple of years ago? Well, here's an extremely RARE Large 18" X 24" Promo Poster used to publicize the book. Actually, it was for an event held on January 15th, 2009 at the Philbrook Museum Of Art in Tulsa, OK. The graphics are beautiful & this baby is ULTRA-RARE!! Now, these items are running right now, as we speak, and most will end around November 10th. Plus, like I said, I couldn't list everything they have!! So, for more information be sure to visit the HAKES AUCTION Website & while you're there be sure to use their SEARCH function & hunt down more "BATMAN"!
