Rasdale Stamp Company Sale - 431

Worldwide Public Auction - February 18-19, 2017

Welcome to the 431st Public Auction!

The two highlights of the sale are the properties of the Empire estate and the Buddy Sokolick estate. The First Session is highlighted by the Empire estate an astounding accumulation of collections, stock books, binders, auction and sales pages going back to the 1940's ending in the early 1970's with strength in United States and Canada. Auction and sales pages from the 1940's filled dozens of boxes that ended up as the major portion of the United States and Canadian singles section while still leaving hundreds of medium to high cataloging items to be offered in our famous pizza size boxes. The Empire estate was donated to a non-profit organization that helps health and human care initiatives get off the ground by providing the initial funding and support they need to thrive. We are proud and honored we were chosen to help with their cause. Rounding out the first session is a wonderful selection of Civil War Patriotic single cover lots and more from the Peninsula estate of Chinese covers.

The Second Session is anchored by United States and Canada singles and sets from the Empire Estate. The first thing we unearthed was a complete imperf sheet of 100 of the Canadian Bluenose, only two have been reported. Also found were both mint and used Seaway Inverts. In addition to the two previously mentioned articles there are numerous better Canada, Newfoundland, and United States individual pieces. Germany, the German Area and Great Britain are also well represented.  The second highlight is the fascinating selection of Rock and Roll and Indy Car collectibles of Buddy Sokolick, longtime head of the production department for Jam Productions in Chicago, where he supported artists including Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi and Amy Grant, among others. He was an avid race car owner and fan, ever since his father first took him to his first Indianapolis 500 race, noting that Sokolick was "a fixture at the race every year."
