Five Brothers Rare Toy Estate Auction: (day one of four days auctioning over 1500 lots NO RESERVE), The core of the collection was actually established in the 1950s by the father (from Indiana) of the adult sons who are consignors to the May sale. As time went on, each of the five brothers set out on his own individual collecting path. Each took a different approach to building his collection, but the one important thing they had in common was a love of vintage American toys, primarily of the boomer era. The time-span for the toys is heavily focused on the 1950s and 60s, with a few from the 1970s.

SHIPPING : Bid online, pickup items at NO CHARGE from SC or AL (auction held in Killen AL). We combine to save you money & ship in-house based on weight. We use Federal Express Ground and USPS, only the USPS rate is quoted on eBay so you need to request a quote to compare FedX rates which for boxes over 3lb is normally much more affordable. Keep in mind we are auctioneers, not retailers, so we also include a small handing charge for boxes - materials since this is a cost we cannot pass to the estate owners.
