RR Auction: Fine Autographs and Artifacts

Auction Details

Our first auction of 2021 is led by leaders: icons of the Civil Rights movement, political powerhouses, and social activists that brought about positive change. Highlights include remarkable letters by Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X; multiple Abraham Lincoln documents; a significant signature from Barack Obama; and several Nelson Mandela autographs. Other top lots include an important F. Scott Fitzgerald letter about This Side of Paradise, a first edition of Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, a rare Al Capone Document, a fully signed example of Nirvana's breakthrough 'Nevermind' album, and an exceedingly rare check signed twice by Nikola Tesla. RR Auction is a globally recognized and trusted auction house specializing in historical autographs and artifacts. Join us as we make history selling history in January 2021.
