Guernsey’s made a splash in the entertainment memorabilia field in March 2008 with their auction event comprising the sale of “The Pugliese Collection“, which garnered significant mainstream media coverage (including The Today Show) and some very impressive prices realized on certain lots. This week Guernsey’s has announced two auctions for late September, one of which is of interest to original film and television prop, costume, and memorabilia collectors.
While details on the official website are currently sparse, the “ICONIC” sale will be held on Friday, September 24th at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City.
