The “Amity Collection,” one of the greatest untouched non-sport collections, is being offered for sale for the first time by American Legends. Meticulously assembled in the 1970s and 1980s by a well-known East Coast collector wishing to remain anonymous, this pedigree collection has sat undisturbed in boxes and binders for more than 20 years.
“I’ve known about since the late 1980s, and I’ve literally inquired about its availablilty every year since,” Rubin, co-owner of Scarsdale’s American Legends, said. “When I was finally contacted last year about the opportunity to acquire it, I jumped at the chance.”
“purchased hundreds of large vintage collections and have come across some phenomenal material,” Rubin continued. “But have never bought anything with this scope of Americana. There are well over high-grade sets produced prior to 1976.”
Sets include many of the hobby’s most treasured: the #1 all-time PSA-graded Beatles Plaks Set, Lost In Space, Gilligan’s Island, Outer Limits, Hit Stars, Civil War News, Wacky Packs, Brady Bunch, Leaf Star Trek, Mutoscope Artist Pin-Up Girls and Chiller Theatre, many in pristine condition direct from cello packs or vending boxes.
American Legends is listing all of the items in their eBay store (amerlegends) on Thursday, May 15 in a combination of auctions and fixed price listings.
American Legends is located at 1107 Central Park Avenue in Scarsdale, N.Y. For more information, visit the store’s website at www.amerlegends.com or call 914-725-2225.
