The Rapier Wit of Jonathan Swift — Penned in 7 Incredibly Scarce Letters

Few writers have reached the continuing level of fame as Jonathan Swift, the foremost Irish satirist whose works, from Gulliver’s Travels to A Modest Proposal, continue to be taught as required college curriculum around the world.

The 18th century was fraught with religious tension — few writers could express those sentiments with such biting articulation as Swift. Less is known of his private life — of his continuing struggles with mental illness some ascribe to a stroke suffered.

James Dean Memorabilia & The Case of the $6,000 White T-Shirt

James Dean’s 1955 tragic death at the young age of 24 stunned the world, particularly as Hollywood’s original bad boy was at the height of his fame. Though he only starred in a few films before the tragic California car crash that ended in his death, few stars continue to be shrouded in intrigue as Dean.

In the auction…

“I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it,” Marilyn Monroe famously said. And woman she was, with a long list of descriptors that continue to shroud the sultry icon, from provocateur to temptress, sex symbol to simply misunderstood.

Though we’ve auctioned Monroe items in the past, lik…

One Small Step, One Invaluable Signature

In an address to America’s National Press Club in 2000, Neil Armstrong offered the following self-portrait: “I am, and ever will be, a white-socks, pocket-protector, nerdy engineer, born under the second law of thermodynamics, steeped in steam tables, in love with free-body diagrams, transformed by Laplace and propelled by compressible flow.”

Rewind to July of 1969 as Esquire writer William Honan asked the pivotal question in his magazine article that would then define Armstrong for…

To auction, buy or sell movie memorabilia, please contact NateDSanders.com at (310) 440-2982 or Nate@NateDSanders.com.

Comebacks are the stuff of legend in Hollywood, and topping that list of fabled comeback artists is Joan Crawford — who, until earning the lead role as Mildred Pierce in the 1945 film noir that won her an Oscar, was labeled ‘box office poison’ by the same industry who first brought her to fame.

The Oscar is symbolic in Crawford’s career, and has an incredible backstory…

Golden Globe Auction

Though Hollywood award shows can run long and droll, there are those moments in television history, particularly in Golden Globes television history, that make the whole 5 hour show worthwhile — like the time The Rat Pack stormed the stage in 1964, Sinatra, Martin and Davis, Jr. each with cigars and whiskey in hand, becoming the self-proclaimed hosts for the evening.

Decadence hit a crescendo at the Globes last year, when the chefs over at the Beverly Hilton made a dessert sprinkled wit…

With 34 Oscars and hundreds of Emmys in our recent auctions, we’ve officially grasped the same statuettes in our hands that many Hollywood legends did the night they took home their awards. In December 2011, we auctioned the Oscar that Orson Welles won for “Citizen Kane” which sold for…

A Neil Armstrong Autograph Triples in Value

To buy, consign or sell in our Apollo 11 & Neil Armstrong autograph auction, please email Nate@NateDSanders.com or call (310) 440-2982.

In the first major auction of a Neil Armstrong autograph since his death, Nate Sanders Auctions saw a three-fold increase in the astronaut’s signature. As many collectors know, Mr. Armstrong signed freely — reportedly spending hours every day signing — up until the mid 1980’s with his autograph selling for (incredibly) around $8 – $12 each. Then,…
