Appraisers from Dallas-based Heritage Auctions are in Fort Worth this weekend to assess collectible items and memorabilia, so if you've been wondering what your old comic books or baseball cards are worth, here's your chance. The event started Friday, but there's still time to catch it this weekend, because appraisers will still be working from till 4 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden's Oak Hall.
If you're interested, you can bring up to three items for appraisal. "Specialists will be prepared to accept and fully insure consignments of qualified items on the spot," the release says. "Heritage, in some instances, will offer cash advances on qualified consignments or purchase items outright."
Last month, 4,000 people came to Heritage's biggest appraisal event in its history in Dallas. Items brought for appraisal include material related to the early Texas Rangers (the law-enforcement agency, not the baseball team, although that could work, too) and an early American Colonial musket. Auction categories include: Fine & Decorative Arts, Silver & Vertu, Modern and Contemporary Art, Rare Coins & Currency, Fine Jewelry & Timepieces, American Indian Art, Space Exploration, Civil War, Arms & Militaria, Americana & Political, Texana, Comics & Comic Art, Rare Books & Manuscripts, Music & Entertainment Memorabilia, Vintage Guitars & Musical Instruments, Sports Collectibles, Natural History, Vintage Movie Posters, Fine & Rare Wine and Designer Handbags.
