|Record Breaking Auction
of MGM Memorabilia
|The Opportunities Auction team broke records on October 13 at the recent auction of rare movie posters, props and other memorabilia from the golden age of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studios.
With good reason, many of the posters reached new heights for prices realized. The offering of special uncirculated posters from Wizard Of Oz ,Tarzan, Mutiny On The Bounty, Trader Horn and others was unprecedented, and the prices reflected their rarity and condition.
The auction began with an astounding start - the first poster sold was a rare Wizard of Oz poster, which commanded a bid of over $60,000. The last poster to sell was an even more rare Wizard of Oz poster that sold with a price of more than $80,000. Both Wizards went to Ralph DeLuca, a noted collector from Madison, New Jersey.
Other items in the auction included some very special Tarzan posters, as well as good examples of Mutiny on The Bounty and a very popular subject, Trader Horn. All of these posters and other related items proved to be of tremendous worth to collectors.
As always at an Opportunities Auction, there are bargains. The Laughing Sal was an unbelievable deal and realized a bid of less than 1/10th its worth.

GREAT FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!
|FOLLOW THE LEADERS Wax Museum is a collection of rare wax figures depicting famous persons
from history - U.S. Presidents, Military Generals, Inventors, Explorers, Entertainers, and others!
Created by world-famous wax artist Katherine Stubergh, these figures are one-of-a-kind masterpieces,
similar to the ones found in Madame Tussaud's famous wax museums.
Our Museum includes many great figures in wax - Dolly Parton, Rudolph Valentino, and the most controversial wax figure of all, ALBERT EINSTEIN. This wax figure of Albert Einstein has generated a lot of news recently when it was offered for sale. Collectors from around the world bid on this rarity. Fortunately, we have it safe and secure in our own little Courtyard Properties!
WHAT MAKES THIS EINSTEIN FIGURE SO SPECIAL?
This likeness was created from an actual impression of Einstein's face. Einstein commissioned world-famous wax artist Katherine Stubergh to create this figure. Einstein sat with her in her studio as she made a life-cast of his face, which Ms. Stubergh then sculpted into an uncanny likeness of the world's most famous physicist. Einstein was so pleased, he signed the back of the neck along with the famous sculptor, Katherine Stubergh. No other wax replica has the actual signature of this genius!
FOLLOW THE LEADERS Wax Museum houses a collection that your entire family will enjoy!
