Two weeks ago I attended an Antiques & Collectibles Show here in Winnipeg. During my time spent at the show I met a long time auctioneer/picker/collector named Peter Wachniak. Mr. Wachniak is very well known here in the Winnipeg area. For 40 years he owned and operated Wachniak Auctions. Mr. Wachniak told me that during his 40 years of buying estates and collections that he recalled buying an autograph collection years ago. I told Mr. Wachniak that I am a long time collector and I would be happy to help him find homes for the autographs which have been sitting in boxes for many, many years. Today Mr. Wachniak brought over a few of the items. Nery of TTM Central and myself spent a few hours today trying to identify a few of the autographs. Most of the autographs were obtained in the 60s and 70s. There was also a signed note from the early 1900s.
Mr. Wachniak would like to sell these items. Some of the items include signed cuts of P.T. Barnum, Sonny & Cher, Michael Wilding, etc.
Please take a look at some of the autographs I have scanned. If you would like to inquire more about the autographs, please feel free to contact me here or via Twitter @FirstRow_ca
