SECTION 1 – FURNISHINGS, TOOLS, ELECTRONICS & HOUSEHOLD ITEMS
Audio/Video Cabinet & TV stand. Available separately. These 3 cabinets are stacked for storage in the photos, but they would more likely be used in a line or even in different parts of your home. They could certainly be used for other things. The bottom cabinet is 48″ wide and approximately 24″ high and 26″ deep. This was used as a wide-screen TV stand. It has two drawers (shown in the 3rd photo) and adjustable shelves. The other two cabinets are approximately 24 x 24 x 26″ and have several adjustable shelves. Please excuse that the photos were taken before they were dusted. They have not been used in some time. They are in excellent condition. $100 for the big cabinet, $45 for each of the smaller cabinets, or $175 for all three. Pick up in the Dallas, TX area.
Vintage (circa 1940’s) Ares Viscount film camera. My dad got this about 1946, maybe while stationed in China. This was our family camera for vacations and events through the 1980’s. Dad always shot slide film, and the images were better than any of the digital cameras I’ve owned, including a Nikon. I have the other half of the leather case, it’s just not in the picture above. $25.
Chivas and Schlitz. The Chivas Regal gift set with glasses is old, but I don’t know how old. Unopened bottle. A similar set today would be about forty bucks. $35. PULL TAB Schlitz, five unopened cans still in the six-pack ring. Definitely dates to 1960’s or 1970’s. $10.
- Elgin Futura circa 1957 “mystery dial” 7620 #T649511, 2.3 jewel 730. My dad wore this for many years. $200 (eBay $250-300).
- Hamilton 9254 $50 (eBay $75-100)
- fake R*lex. I think my dad purchased this on the street in China in the 1980’s. $25
- Speidel band in original package. Free with Elgin or Hamliton purchase.
New in box portable basketball system. Box has some wear, but never opened. $50 (pick up only).
Tent. It’s been in the box a long time. $2
Display mannequins. One has some water stain, but once something is on it you can’t tell. I used to put old T-shirts on the mannequins before displaying Stevie Ray Vaughan’s stage wardrobe on them. $125 each.
1950’s Sunbeam Mixmaster. Looks great in the kitchen. My mom made a lot of great cakes and brownies with this. $35.
Vintage Columba record player for 33.3, 78 and 45 rpm records. No idea if it would work, but it will need a new plug and wire. This was in a console in my parents house since the 1950’s. We grew up playing records on this. $50.
P.A. System, includes head, two speakers with quality speaker stands in bags, heavy duty cables. I’ll throw in the small mixer shown next to the head. The guitar amp is NOT included. $100. Heavy duy music stand $30.

Texas Instruments Datamath TI-2500-II calculator. It works (on/off switch has to be in just the right spot). This seems to be an odd or rare version because every reference I found online says two AA batteries, but this one takes four. Believed to be 1974. Original cost $50! Now $15 (non-working parts calculators are $20 on eBay)
Socket wrench sets: 52-piece is old but never used, still has the plastic cover over the tools inside the METAL box, and the retail cardboard sleeve. It was originally $99.99. My price $50.
CUSTOM PICTURE FRAMING EQUIPMENT:
The above three photos show the major pieces of a much larger collection of all the tools and supplies you need to create custom picture frames. The wall cutter cuts mats, glass, plexiglas to size. It is a C+H Advantage G60 which you can get more information on elsewhere. The middle photo is a moulding chopper for wood frames. The last photo shows a mat cutter and a shrink-wrap machine. I also have several corner vices, metal rulers, centering rule, all types of hangers for the backs, wood filler in many colors, double-sided tape and dispenser, points and point gun, 36″ paper and dispenser for dust paper on backs, on and on. I’ll even include the custom work table. All the equipment you need to build a frame or even open a business. Depending on how much I use it before it is sold, there is a supply of wood moulding, mats in various colors, glass including some UV glass. I started framing years ago because the “pros” were destroying the value of my collectibles. I have made literally thousands of frames with this equipment. I bought it from the gallery I used to work for when they closed their frame shop. Pick up only near Dallas. Take it all for $1,000. Even used, this equipment would set you back at least double that.
SECTION 2 – FILM & HOLLYWOOD COLLECTIBLES
AUDREY HEPBURN’S OWNED AND WORN EARRINGS – click here for details
Purchased directly from her family’s estate sale. Click link above for details.
JULIA ROBERTS signed Broadway Playbill. Complete original Playbill from Three Days of Rain, starring Julia Roberts on Broadway in New York in 2006. I took the photo of her signing autographs outside the theater after the show, so you are not going to see that photo anywhere else. After two shows that week I was able to get three autographs, and two are available here (I’m keeping the other one). First buyer can pick which one you want. With Ms. Roberts acting and performing less and less, there are very few opportunities now to get her autograph. $125 each or both for $200. I also have one unsigned Playbill for $5.

SECTION 3 – SPORTS COLLECTIBLES
Signed matchbook: Mickey Mantle, signed, “”To Fran, Best Wishes, Mickey Mantle”” at a Brook Hollow Golf Club, Dallas, event on January 1, 1963 (or possibly December 31, 1962) just after winning the 1962 World Series. Signed on a Brook Hollow Golf Club matchbook. Fran is a neighbor of mine, now in her 80’s. I originally bought this from her as a gift to my brother. $200.
SEE also the Yankees clothing, jeresys and jackets in the Household & Clothes section.
Mickey Mantle Rawlings glove in original box! This is apparently an extremely rare Mantle Trap-eze TJ 30 model. Several glove collectors and dealers have told me they have never seen one before. You are not likely to find one in better condition. This was my father’s glove. The leather is still soft and luxurious. He only used it to play catch with us in the yard. He never let us use this glove (see the our glove below). One-owner, adult-owned and very well taken care of. I haven’t seen another one offered at all, much less with the original box. $1500.
Here’s our Mickey Mantle glove! My brother and I both used this glove. It is well-used, but maybe someone wants it because it’s a Mantle glove. $25.
Plain ol’ baseball glove in excellent condition. My guess is it dates to the 1970’s. $20. Play ball!
