— John Reznikoff

WESTPORT, CONN., UNITED STATES, August 21, 2017 / — WESTPORT, Conn. – A fantastic selection of autographed documents, manuscripts, books and relics are up for bid in an internet-only auction already online by University Archives, based in Westport. The auction will go live on Tuesday, August 29th, on The catalog may be viewed right now by visiting the University Archives website at

Choice offerings will include a larger-than-life portrait of inventor Thomas A. Edison, signed by Edison and the artist, Ellis M. Silvette; a letter hand-written and signed by Marilyn Monroe when she was just 17 and still Norma Jeane; a war letter twice-signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1862, nicely framed; and a letter handwritten and signed by Morse code inventor Samuel Morse.

Also sold will be a pair of letters written and signed by the famously reclusive and enigmatic writer J. D. Salinger. Both were written to Joyce Miller, a lifelong friend and confidante. One is typewritten (except for the signature) and dated 1950, about the time he was finishing writing Catcher in the Rye and living in Westport. The other is a 1969 letter handwritten in New York.

Other items of interest will include a George Washington signed note with his original hand drawing, Winston Churchill’s Cuban cigar with case from 1954, John F. Kennedy’s family-owned oak press-back chair, George W. Bush’s worn pair of Mizuno sneakers, Muhammad Ali’s 1978 contract to fight boxer Ken Norton, and a Yale University track team photo from 1903.

“I love this sale for the breadth of material and the quality of the items,” said John Reznikoff, founder and president of University Archives. “Of course the Edison and the Morse are the best money can buy, but there are many little gems of fantastic content that would rate at the top of the autograph food chain. The Obama and Bush items cover both ends of the political spectrum.”

With an estimate of $70,000-$80,000, the large painting of Edison (1847-1931) by Silvette (Am., 1876-1940) could be the sale’s top lot. The work – 47 inches by 96 inches, in the frame – was commissioned by the New York State Chamber of Commerce in 1929 on the 50th anniversary of the invention of the light bulb and depicts Edison standing in the library of his New Jersey lab.

Marilyn Monroe was Norma Jeane Dougherty and already two years into her first marriage when she hand-wrote a four-page letter in January 1944 to her legal guardian from 1935-1942, Grace (McKee) Goddard. In it, the teenager enthuses about her Christmas purchase of a “Gold Coast monkey coat. Oh, it’s simply beautiful!” The signed letter has an estimate of $18,000-$20,000.

The single page handwritten letter signed by Samuel Morse (1791-1872) is believed to be the finest Morse handwritten letter available. Dated Nov. 11, 1862, the letter is written entirely in Morse’s hand, wherein he proclaims he was the inventor of the telegraph and describes its first use and operation. The lot includes a fine engraving of Morse and should bring $15,000-$20,000.

The Civil War-era letter twice signed by Lincoln is dated Dec. 15, 1862 and was written to Navy Secretary Gideon Welles, with Naval Academy content. Lincoln signed the letter, then added an addendum the following day, which he also signed and dated. The letter is nicely displayed to the left of a color engraving and bust portrait of Lincoln. The lot should gavel for $15,000-$20,000.

The excellent and well-used Kennedy family-owned chair is a classic black painted and stamped press-back oak chair, with a seat height of 17 ½ inches and an overall height of 38 ½ inches. It was made around the middle of the 20th century and would be wonderful as décor in an antique setting, especially considering all of the Kennedys who no doubt sat in it (est. $2,500-$3,000).

At a party held at 10 Downing Street in London, England on Dec. 21, 1954, Winston Churchill presented Roderic Bowen (England’s Liberal Parliamentary Deputy-Speaker) with a fine Cuban cigar and attractive custom case. Both have made their way to this auction, but not before a 19-year embargo. A letter by Bowen confirming the gift is included in the lot (est. $3,500-$4,500).

Owning a signed note handwritten by George Washington would be enough for most autograph collectors, but when the note includes a drawing by Washington of a hand pointing a finger at his message, that’s icing on the cake. The heavily penned note, 2 inches by 3 inches on laid paper, is not dated but it’s believed to have been written around 1789. It has an estimate of $6,000-$8,000.

In 1978 Muhammad Ali signed a four-page contract to fight his nemesis Ken Norton, but Ali’s loss to Leon Spinks that year in what was supposed to be a tune-up fight for Norton voided that contract (and a promised $12.5 million payday for Ali). The contract, actually a photocopy of the original, but still signed by Ali and promoter Bob Arum, is expected to command $3,000-$4,000.

George W. Bush’s personally owned and well-worn Mizuno sneakers, designed by Bush while he was president and showing the personal presidential stitched monogram on the tongue of each sneaker (“President / G.W. Bush”), no doubt graced golf courses, Camp David and elsewhere. The shoes come with a COA from Bush’s valet Samuel Sutton and should reach $2,000-$2,500.

The impressive gelatin silver print photograph of Yale University’s men’s outdoor track and field team from circa 1903 shows 44 varsity and junior varsity team members all dressed in black tanks and white shorts, standing and seated in four rows. All sport white “Y” letters on their tops. The 22 ½ inch by 30 ¾ inch photo is nicely matted and mounted on board (est. $1,500-$2,000).

The large, top-secret dispatch lock box with black leather covering and travel handle owned by David Lloyd George (1863-1945), a key figure in Great Britain during that conflict and the holder of several important government positions after the war, has a pre-sale estimate of $1,000-$1,200. The wood framed box has a beveled top with George’s name embossed, in rubbed gilt.

John Reznikoff started collecting stamps in 1968, while in the third grade, and in 1979 he formed University Stamp Co., Inc. In 1984, he joined forces with Bryan Camarda, a specialist in philatelic material, and the two have been partners ever since. By the late ‘80’s and early ‘90’s, Reznikoff was exclusively dealing in manuscript material under the name University Archives.

What The Video Game Industry Is Worth Now

NEW YORK, USA, August 21, 2017 / — As the videogame industry's annual trade show E3 roars on in Los Angeles, interest in the industry is spiking once more among analysts.

The combination of big media attention, promising upcoming titles, and the excitement surrounding virtual reality—plus business models that are usually more profitable than other media these days—is enough to get Wall Street's attention.

More people are playing games every day and spending more money on games, unlike almost every other form of media, where there's downward pressure. Games are still a growing industry and they are becoming more dynamic. Video games should be near the top of the lists of investors. And one of those investors hails from the UAE, in Dubai in fact and has its sights locked on the rise of mobile gaming.

Ennahar Production, one of the biggest entertainment company based in Dubai is planning to grab a share of this big pie by investing in game developers it deems to have a huge potential in developing the next big mobile gaming craze after Pokemon Go. Executive Director of Partnerships, Wayne Norman says, “We are ready to support developers in what we call a collaborative investment that will benefit all parties moving forward.”

The market for mobile gaming is hot, and getting hotter. According to video game research firm Newzoo, the migration from computers and consoles to tablets and smartphones sent worldwide mobile game revenues surging in 2017 versus the year prior, hitting $46.1 billion. The overall global gaming revenue of more than 100 billion, easily surpassing traditional entertainment like music and movies, makes it an investment force to be reckoned with.

Industry professionals believe the biggest opportunities in 2017 will come from the growth of emerging markets. Markets including China, Southeast Asia and India are continuing to grow at a rapid pace, and can unlock new opportunities for Western developers willing to localize and take on these regions.

The Arab region has one of highest grossing mobile games market in the world, with Saudi Arabia bringing in more than $ 314.4 million in revenue. The video gaming industry is currently worth more than $ 1 billion and is expected to quadruple by 2022. Keep in mind the mobile gaming industry has been stealing the spotlight from console games over the past few years due to the rapid increase in overall mobile growth. Arabs love playing games, especially games tailored to their language and culture. Mobile gaming companies like Super Cell and King have recently started to support the Arabic language in their games.

Other opportunities include new monetization methods – with ads becoming increasingly popular and valuable to developers – and real-time competitive multiplayer games. This is likely spurred on by the huge success of games like Supercell’s Clash Royale, which is thought to have grossed over $1 billion in less than a year after launch.

Brontosaurus Brought Back From Extinction

EverythingTiny has created three new Tinysaur kits of Brontosaurus, Quetzalcoatlus, and Fiji Mermaid.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, August 18, 2017 / — Tiny laser-cut skeleton models resemble giants at natural history museums. Designer Herb Hoover has created three new miniature bone kits for you to assemble.

The once-stately brontosaurus had been removed from the cladogram because of a mistake by O.C. Marsh during the Dinosaur Wars in 1879. Debunked as only an apatosaurus, which was also discovered by Marsh, the brontosaurus went from being one of the best known dinosaurs to one of paleontology's best known blunders. However, in 2015, after a closer examination of Marsh's apatosaurus and brontosaurus fossils, scientists found significant enough differences to restore the bronto's good name.

The Quetzalcoatlus is larger than a giraffe and scientists believe it could fly over 10,000 miles without stopping. In 2016, ornithologists observed birds sleeping in flight, so paleontologists have extrapolated the pterosaur's ability to sleep while in flight. Imagine if your captain did that.

EverythingTiny's Fiji Mermaid is one of the designer's personal favorites. It's a mythical creature that conjured images of adventure and discovery on the high seas. The Zwaanendael Museum in Lewes Delaware has an exhibit of the taxidermied creature. Only a few specimens exist.

Tinysaurs are skeleton kits that you assemble into a miniature museum specimen. Bare bones kits come with tiny laser cut bones and printed instructions. All-in-one kits include laser-cut bones, printed instructions, a glass display dome with wooden base, tweezers, glue, and a magnifier — everything needed to build the tiny skeleton. also hosts 3D instructions that you can rotate and zoom in on.

EverythingTiny's crowdfunding campaign will close on September 19th at 11 PM. They are currently ramping up production to create the parts and assemble them into the kits to ensure on-time delivery of the Kickstarter rewards.

Tinysaurs and have been around since 2008 when Kelly Maguire fired a laser beam to create the first T-rex with a tripodal posture imitating a kangaroo. Herb Hoover has added 15 skeleton models and two add-on kits to the Tinysaur collection since their first Kickstarter campaign in 2013.

Already funded and with two weeks left to run, Cosykiller looks set to be a new gaming experience that will take the world by storm.

GRIMSBY, LINCOLNSHIRE, UK, August 18, 2017 / — Red Herring Games have been creating award winning murder mystery games for over 10 years.

Cosykiller is their latest murder mystery design and is aimed primarily at the solo sleuth. With just two weeks left to run on their Kickstarter Crowdfunding campaign and already fully funded – this new game format looks set to take the world by storm.

The unique crime puzzle game will enable individual players to immerse themselves in the golden age of fiction in a self-driven investigation which will require all their intelligence and perception. It's like an Agatha Christie novel but with you playing Miss Marple!

Unlike many role playing games on the market which are utilising modern gadgetry, Red Herring Games have returned to old fashioned era of deduction, presenting the players with documents and artifacts from the 1930s as they try to discover the perpetrators of a cold case.

“Everyone is going digital these days,” Said managing director Jo Smedley, “But we wanted to go back to the touchy-feely world of the 1930s. No one gets mail any more. Everything is on-line, but there is something really special about handling letters and objects. We wanted to supply a product that was immersive, engaging, and encouraged discussion.”

Cosykiller is the first murder mystery game aimed at the solo sleuth, but it’s also ideal for families and small groups.

“Families and small groups can work together to puzzle out the boxes.” Jo Smedley said. “We imagine over the course of the year players might end up producing their own version of an incident board to help them puzzle through the mystery.”

The company has launched the project on Kickstarter on the 1st August and within 24 hours had already raised 70% of their development. With just under two weeks left to run, Red Herring Games are appealing to those interested in obtaining the first box for Christmas to sign up through their Kickstarter program now. Those interested can pledge to receive just one box or the entire series and join the others who are gaining a massive discount before the product goes live just before Christmas this year.

Perfect souvenir from singapore

Singapore Memories ( has announced the launch of 6 new fragrant souvenirs, inspired by orchids.

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, August 17, 2017 / — Singapore Memories ( has announced the launch of 6 new fragrant souvenirs named ‘Aranda 1965’ , ‘Vanda 1981’ , ‘One Degree North’ , ‘Orchids By The Bay’ , ‘Peranakan Oud’ and ‘The Orient’.

The fragrances are manufactured in Singapore and have been inspired by “Native Orchids of Singapore”.

They have been designed for residents to admire the amazing floral heritage Singapore once had. At the same time, they make a perfect souvenir for visitors, retelling a Singaporean Story.

Cost ranges from $28 (18ml EDT) to $168 (100ml EDP). Several options are sizes available to choose from.

About “Vanda 1981” : Vanda Orchids are the most natural choice for perfumery notes, because of its soft, haunting, and feminine fragrance. Vanda Mimi Palmer and hybrids can smell from sweet-jasmine to powdery, sometimes almost like a baby-powder.

1981 is a symbolic year in Singaporean history. and significant in many ways, but most especially because by this time Singapore was clearly on its way to become a 1st world city.
Changi airport had opened its doors; Traveller’s Palms were in full bloom; Singapore River was almost clean; The port was already the 2nd busiest in the world; And a “courtesy campaign” had been started, which today is called “The Kindness Movement”.
Whole lot of other good things started, laying the foundation for good, happy future.

Vanda 1981- This is a mischievous yet gentle Vanda perfume, for a smart and curious young lady, ready to explore the world.

One of the most famous Singaporean Vanda is Vanda Miss Joaquim, the national flower. It was picked from among 40 flowers, particularly for its vibrant colours, hardiness and resilience – qualities which reflect the Singapore spirit. Other famous Vanda includes Vanda Shah Rukh Khan; Vanda William Catherine amongst a very long list.

About “Peranakan Oud” :

Peranakan Oud is the very heart of our collection. This unisex, deep soul-searching, unexpected and poetic scent is a collection of unique and surprising olfactory notes, which freely explore new facets of emotion.

Peranakan Oud” is inspired by the Peranakan culture and takes its base notes from Oud combined with soft Tonka bean, Praline and Green Tobacco leaves.

It touches the heart and speak directly to the senses, with sobriety and intensity. As someone told us, "The scent of refined, tender, warm and woody Oud can only be experienced, not explained."

Peranakan – Peranakan literally means "Child of the Land". Today it is often used to describe families with Strait's Chinese and Malay partners, fusing the two dissimilar cultures into one. This perfume celebrates the unique aromas of the Peranakan culture. Many Peranakans trace their origins to 15th-century Malacca.
Peranakan males are known as “Babas” while the females are known as “Nonyas”.

Peranakan Oud- This is a unisex fragrance, designed for Peranakans, Malays and visitors from Europe and Gulf.

Oud- Oud oil is distilled from Agarwood, and is one of the most expensive ingredient
in perfumery. Perhaps it is also the most mysterious. Oud forms in the trunk of a Aquilaria tree, when resin-feeding beetle infects it. In response to the infection, the tree produces this material in self-defence in order to suppress the “infection". The infected wood starts to change colour, going from pale beige to yellow, orange, red, dark brown or black.
Often 70Kg of Agarwood will produce only 20 ml Oud oil.

About “Aranda 1965” : Aranda Orchids are beautiful, but tough for perfume application. We had to add top notes of Bergamot, Kafir Lime and other Citruses to ‘Aranda Peng-Lee Yeoh’ to come up with a beautiful, almost perfect masculine scent. The base was made heavier and long lasting by adding masculine musk, Amber and woody notes.

Singapore’s own Aranda Chocolate Orchid: Aranda Peng-Lee Yeoh was registered in 1966 and has a distinct vanilla fragrant that children often identify as chocolate, making this the ‘chocolate orchid’.

1965- Singapore became independent in 1965. The development brought uncertainty and fear. The leaders and pioneer generation turned it around into a country with the 3rd highest per capita GDP in the world.
This perfume is dedicated to the leaders around the world, people of action, people with courage and people who believe in possibilities. People who know the way, go the way and also show the way.

Aranda 1965- This strong-masculine perfume is the scent of natural born leaders, of achievers, of visionaries and yet compassionate souls.

Few famous Aranda Hybrids: Aranda Majulah; Aranda Lee Kuan Yew, amongst a very long list.

About Singapore Memories: We are a Singaporean Perfume brand, that wishes to tell a unique Singapore Story, which is inextricably linked to the visionary spirit of the founders, who gave us a proud identity.

Our relentless search for defining Singaporean products, made us combine this spirit, with Native-Orchids of Singapore.

We offer perfumes at traditional retail outlets, online channels and through our own web-store.

We are a proud Singaporean product with manufacturing and assembly facility in Tai Seng area.

Our bottles are made from 340grams of BK7, hand-polished luxurious crystal.

LiveAuctioneers Wins Prestigious 2017 Stevie® Award in International Competition for Customer Service Team of the Year

NYC-based members of LiveAuctioneers’ customer support team. Image provided by LiveAuctioneers

Winners to be feted at gala event Oct. 21 in Barcelona, Spain

No matter how superior a product or service may be, it’s only as effective as the support team that ensures partners get all the benefits of working with a global leader.”

— Phil Michaelson, Sr. VP Marketing & Product, LiveAuctioneers

NEW YORK, USA, August 16, 2017 / — LiveAuctioneers has won a prestigious Stevie® Award in the 2017 International Business AwardsSM (IBAs) competition, in the "Customer Service Team of the Year" category.

Nicknamed the “Stevies” for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the W Hotel in Barcelona, Spain on October 21.

More than 3,900 nominations from organizations in 60+ nations or territories were submitted to this year’s IBAs. Stevie® Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 executives worldwide who participated on 12 juries. The stellar panel that adjudicated the Customer Service of the Year category included executives from such global powerhouses as Oracle Corporation, Barclaycard, ADP, Dubai Airport Freezone, and WP Engine, among others.

“Customer service is the cornerstone of LiveAuctioneers’ business,” said Phil Michaelson, LiveAuctioneers Senior VP Marketing and Product. “Most companies view customer service as an expense, but we view it as a smart marketing investment with a rapid payback that provides a multi-year return to our business, our auction-house partners and our bidder community. While auction houses on the LiveAuctioneers platform see a 23% increase in auction revenue once they join LiveAuctioneers, it is the tools we provide to help them win consignors – from multilingual support to best-practice sharing – that enable auction houses on our platform to win consignments more regularly than auction houses than are not on our platform.’

“No matter how superior a product or service may be, it’s only as effective as the support team that ensures partners get all the benefits of working with a global leader,” Michaelson continued. “Our focus on hiring customer support professionals with empathy, ensuring multilingual support for buyers and sellers, and a highly data-centric approach to measuring our support effectiveness all contributed to LiveAuctioneers’ recognition by a highly respected group of industry leaders.”

Judges noted in their commentary that LiveAuctioneers delivers “excellent customer service … with high integrity, making a real difference to the business and community,” and remarked that the company’s proficient onboarding and training of 972 new auction-house partners over the past year was “a great example of owning a critical client journey.” Statistics showed that LiveAuctioneers’ support team had maintained an exceptional 99.98% retention rate with existing clients and that customer satisfaction had increased by 45%, putting LiveAuctioneers comfortably ahead of its competitors in the online-auction space.

“The IBA judges from across the world were highly impressed with the nominations they reviewed this year,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “The Stevie Awards are proud to honor organizations that demonstrate a high level of achievement in a variety of industries. We look forward to sharing many of these stories with people around the world over the coming months through the Stevie Awards blog and social media channels, with the hope to inspire others to high achievement.”
