    Please join us this coming Sunday evening, May 28, 2017 for this week's talk on antiques in which we profile bargains under $100 at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Denver. We found many items in several different categories, including a doll's trunk from the 1940s, a '20's crocodile purse, 1880s advertising, an autograph from the '30s by a baseball hall of famer, a folk art painting & frame, & many other pieces. Hopefully we found somethings that will interest all of you! We're on at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM PDT. See you then. Gary

    We've just completed our 7th year online, and at the conclusion of each year I propose a "rule" or suggestion for art & antique dealers. Rule #1 was "You make your money when you buy, not when you sell;" Rule #2 was "Having 1 collectible worth $100,000 is a lot better than having 10 collecitbles worth $10,000 each;" Rule #3 was "You can beat anybody in this game, but you can't beat Christie's & Sotheby's;" Rule #4 was "Never buy what you like;" Rule #5 was "Never pay 40% commissions;" Rule #6 was "Share your knowledge;" and you'll just have to join us this coming Sunday evening, May 21, 2017, at 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT to find out what Rule #7 is! Hope you can tune in. Gary

    I started a blog last July detailing how Marshall Bulle & I were searching for a huge photo of Wyatt Earp's first wife, Urilla Sutherland Earp. Since then we've been able to establish a higher level of confidence in the authenticity of the Wyatt photo, but we still haven't found the photograph of Urilla. Here's our new Wanted Poster.

    Wells Fargo is an iconic name in the field of Western collectibles, and in this week's show I'll profile some prime examples. There's a huge safe with great graphics, a directory for use by shippers, a wanted poster, and a derringer used by a plain clothes lawman hired by the company to ride on the stage coaches & trains! The gun was presented to him by the President of the Company. There are many fake Wells Fargo items out there, so we'll discuss how to spot them. Hope you can join us this coming Sunday evening, May 14, 2017 (Mother's Day) for the program. We'll be on at the usual time: 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Gary

    A few months I did a show in which I started a project to determine whether postcard prices had declined over the past several years. In this week's program I'll update you on what I've found. The original show was very popular, and several people have asked me how it turned out.  Some post card dealers have questioned whether Carl Weber's take on the market, ie that it had tanked, was correct. Please tune in for where I think things stand. Also, there have been developments in some of the other recent shows I've done, so I'll update you on those programs, ie Candlewick, Wyatt Earp photo, etc. Please join us this coming Sunday evening, May 7, 2017. We're on at the usual time: 5PM PDT, 6PM MDT, 7PM CDT, 8PM EDT. Gary

    Get your Phonograph Ready!   It is time to drag your old phonograph and vinyl records out of the basement because vinyl records are in high demand these days. Many audiophiles now prefer music coming from vinyl records more than digitally- reproduced music. They like the truer more distinct sound, even with some of the distortions produced by vinyl records. While the old 45 RPM and 78 RPM vinyl records have some demand, the demand for 33 1/3 RPM Record Albums has skyrocketed and thus, the value has increased significantly over the past few years. Whether it be for the records or for the album covers, the demand has grown. Of course the artists on the album is the most important factor affecting value, the condition of the record itself, as well as the condition of the album cover, greatly affect the value. Common albums can be purchased for as little as a dollar while rare, scarce first-pressing editions of certain albums have values in the hundreds of dollars. Interested? Check out the Brass Armadillo as there are several vendors selling vinyl record albums as well as 45 RPM single records. Relax and enjoy the sounds from old vinyl records!
