Part 2, the Andy Yanchus Collection
Part 2 of the Andy Yanchus collection – 564 lots of rare and vintage comics and comic art gathered over the course of a lifetime by the renowned hobbyist – will come up for bid on New Year’s Day, Sunday, January 1st, beginning at 12 noon Eastern time, by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, online and live in the Bruneau & Co. gallery at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, R.I. Part 1 of the collection, which consisted of plastic models, diecast toys, American models and vintage toys from the 1960s thru the 1990s, was sold on September 17th, also by Bruneau & Co. A series of further auctions will also be conducted throughout the year, featuring more of Mr. Yanchus’s models, toys and more. Part 2 will be Bruneau & Co.’s largest comic auction to date. “Many of the books in the Part 2 sale are the highest graded examples available. We couldn’t be prouder,” said Travis Landry, Bruneau & Co.’s Director of Pop Culture and an auctioneer. “It also includes a large selection of Andy’s original artwork from when he worked at Marvel. His friendship with Dave Cockrum produced an unreleased Ms. Marvel cover they did together.” Nearly 50 comic books from Andy Yanchus’s collection were graded 9.8, while hundreds of other high-grade books were 9.0 and higher. Comic art highlights, meanwhile, will include the full story color guides to Amazing Spider-Man #238, Shogun Warriors #1 and Alpha Flight #1. Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com and the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes or GooglePlay.
