ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The single-owner, lifetime gambling and coin-op collection of Richard and Mary Schulte of Michigan, plus three other outstanding collections from other states around the country, will co-headline Showtime Auction Services’ three day spring auction slated for the weekend of March 31st thru April 2nd, at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in Ann Arbor.

The other collections include Part 2 of the Tiny Moyer salesman’s sample and child’s stove collection from Maryland, Ron Sturgeon’s German cut-a-way school model car collection from Texas; a fabulous country store and advertising collection of Donna and Bruce Weir from Illinois; and the diverse and eclectic collection of trade signs and many other unusual items from the Don Sarizi collection in Oregon. In all, more than 2,000 lots will come up for bid over the course of the three sale days.

“Any one of these four fine collections would be able to stand alone and make any auctioneer proud, but to have all four in one sale is like a perfect storm, and I mean that in a good sense,” said Mike Eckles of Showtime Auction Services, based in Woodhaven. “I encourage all serious collectors to come early and bid often.” The venue’s address is 5055 Ann Arbor/Saline Road in Ann Arbor.
