Walk of Fame Awards Are The Name of The Game
The Hollywood Walk of Fame lines the sidewalks of fifteen blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street in Hollywood, California. With more than 2,400 stars and counting, it’s one of the highest honors in the entertainment industry.
Actors, musicians, directors, and many others who have earned this status receive a permanent space on the sidewalk commemorating their career forever.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce receives an average of 200 nominations for next contenders each year.
Walk of Fame Awards
We are proud to announce we have two official Hollywood Walk of Fame Awards honoring two of television and films’ biggest luminaries, Captain Kangaroo and Peter Fonda
Millions of children in 1950s America remember the jovial man who entertained them on television for 30 years with his whimsical wit, his charming presence, his iconic moustache.
As part of our upcoming auction, will be auctioning over 500+ personally owned and one-of-a-kind items from each stage in Robert Keeshan’s career as Captain Kangaroo.
