CLEVELAND – May 1, 2012 – The May 2012 Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles newsletter is now available in print and online.
Kovels’ May newsletter helps you swing into baseball season with its report on some collectibles offered at auction. An autographed Honus Wagner ball sold for over $2,400, a Jackie Robinson doll was $763 and a Mickey Mantle card went for $305. Kovels' May issue takes baby boomers back to “Howdy Doody time" with pictures and prices of memorabilia related to the red-headed marionette. A wooden Howdy Doody figure went for $1,800. And you'll be hooked on rugs after reading Kovels’ auction report on homey hooked rugs.
