Check it out: WWI Trench Art

This is a piece of trench art from WWI, probably by an American soldier. When there was downtime, soldiers would create art with items they had on hand. Note the bullet casing! Kenmore Collectibles buys war memorabilia from the Revolutionary War to World War II. #medals, #swords, #uniforms, #photos. Anything but German WWII.   

Vintage Sports Pennants

We’ve had some big hits: The customer who found the Roberto Clemente cut signature card a few weeks back was lucky, but how’s this for a great pull? Another of our customers found this in a pack of 2013 Historic Autographs Originals. He paid $200.00 for the pack. In the past two months, prices realized on […]
