Milestone’s Winter Antique Toy Spectacular Settles Just Under $500K, with Hot Competition for Marx Prototypes
Enthusiastic response to company’s first major offering of cast-iron toys, with a promise of more to come in April
WILLOUGHBY, OH – There’s no great mystery as to why vintage toys are so popular with collectors. They’re colorful, they’re fun, and they invariably prompt the comment so familiar to auctioneers and toy dealers: “Wow! I had one of those when I was a kid!”
One of Milestone Auctions’ specialties is antique and vintage toys, and the nostalgia factor that drives today’s prices for clean, crisp vintage toys is something they witness at each of their sales, including their January 29 Winter Antique Toy Spectacular that took in just under half a million dollars.
