all treats, no tricks, in this issue

It’s a thrill to feature vintage Halloween collectibles in this issue of Antique Trader. Like most people, I’m a big fan of the holiday. One of the simple pleasure in my life is handing out candy to Trick-or-Treaters who come to our home. And, if the truth be told, I’m a softy, giving out WAY more candy than I should – or so my wife tells me. From a personal standpoint, however, there’s a more important reason that this issue focuses on Halloween: After too many years, it allowed me a good excuse to talk once again with an old friend, Mark Ledenbach. I first met Mark in 2002 in Atlantic City at the Atlantique City Antiques & Collectibles Show. I was at the show looking for potential authors and Mark had…

from our readers

In our August 28 issue, “For the Love of Dogs,” we asked you to submit stories and photos of the special dogs in your life. This sweet submission is from reader, J.R.: At first, our nonverbal granddaughter, who has autism, would not look at our huge white Great Pyrenees, Buddy. However, our dog’s persistence and lots of licking gradually won her over. She began glancing at him (instead of focusing on a waving grass blade near his paws), then looking at him for several seconds at a time. Finally, she would pet him with some help. Now, she will laugh at his romping, jumping and circular running in the yard. At times, he knocks us over in his exuberance, so I fully look for one of her first words (at…

adorable reminder of grandmother’s house

Q This musical knickknack was in my grandparents’ house ever since I was a little girl. It was passed on to me. At first I thought it was broken because it makes a clicking sound as it plays music, but then I realized when you hold it up to the light and look through the back window, it is a slide show of the story, Sleeping Beauty, and the clicking noise is the slide switching to the next picture. It is plastic and approximately 3-3/4 inches tall. No date, but the back reads, “Made in Western Germany” and also “Ges.gesch.” Can you tell me how old it is and what it’s worth? Sandra Van Tassel A Oh, I can just see your fascination as a little girl at your grandmother’s house peering into…

a real card

LYNBROOK, N.Y. – An exceedingly rare Nintendo Pokémon “Pikachu Illustrator” card could top $100,000 when it comes up for sale Wednesday, Oct. 23, at Weiss Auctions. An extraordinary example PSA graded in Mint 9 condition, the Pokémon card was given to the winners of the 1998 CoroCoro Comic Illustration contest in Japan and is one of only three known to exist. The card was created specifically for the contest. In 2014, a PSA Mint-9 Pikachu Illustrator card sold for $90,000, the highest amount realized for a Pokémon card. Weiss Auctions is no stranger to such rarities. Earlier this summer, Weiss sold three complete sets of Magic: The Gathering cards from 1993 – the complete Alpha, Beta and Arabian Nights sets – for more than $608,000. In addition to the Pokémon card, the auction…
