Rare Nintendo Pokémon "Pikachu Illustrator" promotional card soars to a record $224,250 at Weiss Auctions, October 23rd

Nintendo Pokemon “Pikachu Illustrator” trainer promo hologram card graded Mint 9 condition, given to a winner at the 1998 CoroCoro Comic Illustration contest in Japan ($224,250).

Fabulous production cel of Snow White, shown at a well with five doves (two of which have gotten loose), on a Courvoisier background, 8 ½ inches by 8 ½ inches ($4,400).

Scarce original production cel from the 1935 Disney film The Band Playing – the very first Mickey Mouse color short measuring 5 inches by 6 ½ inches ($11,865).

Complete five-volume set of Science Fiction Fanzine #1-5, including The Reign of Superman (1933-1934), a highly coveted Superman rarity by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster ($44,070).

Original Sunday comic page for Buster Brown and Tige by Richard Outcault (1863-1928), dated Sept. 24, 1916, watercolor and ink over graphite with hand-colored highlights ($7,800).

The trainer promotional hologram trading card, graded in Mint 9 condition, was presented to a winner at the 1998 CoroCoro Comic illustration contest in Japan.

LYNBROOK, NY, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Nintendo Pokémon “Pikachu Illustrator” trainer promotional hologram trading card, graded in Mint 9 condition and given to a winner at the 1998 CoroCoro Comic illustration contest in Japan, soared to $224,250 (a new world auction record) at an auction held October 23rd by Weiss Auctions, online and in firm’s Lynbrook gallery at 74 Merrick Road.

Fan-favorite Pikachu starred on what is inarguably the most valuable and rarest Pokémon card in the world, accounting for the dizzying selling price. Although the technical name for the card is "Pokémon Illustrator", it is known as "Pikachu Illustrator" due to the image. What makes it so rare is that it wasn’t sold but awarded as a prize at the illustration contest thru CoroCoro Comic.

The card was created specifically for the contest. In the January 1998 issue, three first place winners won a copy of the card, as did another 20 second place winners. With cards awarded in two more contests that year, there were a maximum of 39 copies released. It isn’t known exactly how many surviving copies are still around; however, only 10 PSA certified copies are known.

The card sold is the only card in the long-running collectible card game series to say "Illustrator" at the top of a trainer card, and the only one to bear the pen symbol in the bottom right corner. The artwork is by Japanese illustrator Atsuko Nishida. The card carried a pre-sale estimate of $125,000-$175,000, which some believed was high, but determined bidders thought otherwise.

The rest of the auction had 500 interesting, fresh-to-the-market lots, in categories that included sports, cards, comic books, comic art, animation, Disney memorabilia and more. The runner-up top lot was a genuine Superman rarity: the complete five-volume set of Science Fiction Fanzine #1-5, including The Reign of Superman (1933-1934), by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster ($44,070).

It was just the third time that Weiss Auctions had ever offered the set in its entirety. Two of the issues were signed by Siegel, one as “Jerome Siegel” in blue pencil on an editorial page and one as part of a pencil note to a subscriber. Some copies had pages that were in the wrong order due to the amateurish nature of the printing from Siegel and Schuster, still in high school at the time.

Following are additional highlights from the auction. Internet bidding was facilitated by Proxibid.com and Invaluable.com. All prices quoted include the buyer’s premium.

A scarce original production cel from the 1935 Disney film The Band Playing – the very first Mickey Mouse color short – finished at $11,865. The cel measured 5 inches by 6 ½ inches and had a great image of Mickey leading the band. It was one of many Disney lots in the auction.

An eight-page pen-and-ink Batman story done in 1994 by the illustrator Joe Kubert (back-dated 1996, DC Publications, issue unknown) realized $9,000. The story was accompanied by photo-copies of these and other pages and came out of Kubert’s estate, as were other items in the sale.

An original Sunday comic page for Buster Brown and Tige by Richard Outcault (1863-1928), dated Sept. 24, 1916, with hand-colored highlights, changed hands for $7,800. The watercolor and ink over graphite comic page, quite rare and desirable, measured 20 inches by 21 inches.

Another Disney lot that had paddles wagging was a fabulous production cel for Snow White, shown at a well with five doves (two of which have gotten loose), on a Courvoisier background. The cel – 8 ½ inches square – sold within its $3,000-$5,000 estimate to hammer for $4,400.

Weiss Auctions will have what is shaping up to be one of its most important auction events ever on Thursday, November 21st, online and in the Lynbrook gallery. The estate sale will feature an important early 18th century sterling silver tankard bearing the mark of “Bartholomew Le Roux”, a 27-inch Tiffany Studios linen fold lamp and a large selection of linen-backed vintage posters.

Also sold will be a collection of works from New England School artists; important artworks by Joan Miro and Marc Chagall; an oil painting by Jean Dufy; a large illustration painting by James Montgomery Flagg; a large selection of better Nippon pieces; bronzes and porcelains; and estate jewelry items ordered sold on behalf of the New York and Bronx Public Administrators Offices.

Chaim Steinberger Speaks at the ABA Family Law Section 2019 Fall Conference in Austin, TX: Divorce Without Destruction

New York Attorney Chaim Steinberger

New York Attorney Chaim Steinberger

New York attorney Chaim Steinberger recently spoke at the American Bar Association Family Law Section 2019 Fall Conference in Austin, TX.

People don’t fight because they’re nasty and vicious. People fight because they’re hurt, angry, and most importantly, afraid.”

— Attorney Chaim Steinberger

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attorney Chaim Steinberger of the New York-based law firm Chaim Steinberger, P.C. recently spoke at the American Bar Association Family Law Section 2019 Fall Conference in Austin, TX. His presentation can be seen here.

Attorney Steinberger’s message discussed the basic psychological imperatives that often drive good people to fight unnecessarily during a divorce. He said:

“People don’t fight because they’re nasty and vicious. People fight because they’re hurt, angry, and most importantly, afraid. When people are scared, their autonomic nervous system (the amygdala and related circuitry–the body’s survival mechanism), takes over, and focuses them intensely on the perceived threat, ignoring all else. That means they get ‘tunnel vision,’ sometimes focusing on issues that seem important instead of the ones that are, and unable to see the real-world solutions that might be right in front of them. That's why it's so much easier for us to advise others and why, when we’re faced with the same situation, we forget to take our own advice.”

Mr. Steinberger outlined what lawyers can do for their clients so that the clients' transition out of ‘survival mode,’ feel safe, and become capable of exploring and considering suitable settlement options for their immediate and long-term benefit, both for themselves and their loved ones.

About Divorce Attorney Chaim Steinberger

After graduating at the top of his class, clerking for a federal judge, and working at some of the most prestigious law firms in the country, Attorney Steinberger dedicated his life to practicing matrimonial, divorce, and family law with dignity and integrity, helping his clients achieve better outcomes through the use of advanced mediation and negotiation techniques and applying game theory and military strategy to family problems. He now uses those skills to help his clients obtain the outcomes they want with a minimum of pain, angst, and expense.

Attorney Steinberger has been characterized a thought-leader and is well-respected by his colleagues on the bench and bar. The New York Law Journal published his article “Divorce Without Destruction,” and the American Bar Association his article “Make More Money by Being More Ethical.” He currently chairs the Custody Committee of the American Bar Association Family Law Section and serves on the Executive Committee of the New York State Bar Association Family Law Section among other bar leadership positions.

Handsome Greek Gnathian skyphos (Apulia, 4th century BC) having a body decorated in a vine motif and featuring a low pedestal foot and two horizontal loop handles (est. $300-$400).

Mayan polychrome jar from the Ulua Valley of Honduras (circa 400-800 AD), 6 ¼ inches tall decorated with deeply carved step pyramids and glyphic symbols (est. $800-$1,200).

The auction has 300+ lots of authentic items from Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Near Eastern and Pre-Columbian cultures, plus other ethnographic and antique items.

With holiday season approaching, I can’t think of a more thoughtful gift than an authentic ancient object from centuries past. The catalog is packed with a wide variety of items, many at low prices. ”

— Gabriel Vandervort

MONTROSE, CA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A large bronze figure depicting the Greek god Harpokrates from the Late Period (circa 664-332 BC), a Greek Gnathian skyphos (deep cup-shaped vessel) from the 4th century BC, and a Mayan polychrome jar from the Ulua Valley of Honduras (circa 400-800 AD) are expected top lots in Ancient Resource Auctions’ Auction #80 on Saturday, November 16th.

Officially titled a Holiday Antiquities Discovery Sale, the online-only auction has a start time of 9 am Pacific and features over 300 lots of authentic items from Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Near Eastern and Pre-Columbian cultures. Also offered will be other ethnographic and antique items, as well as a small selection of antiques and ancient-style decorator pieces.

“With holiday season approaching, I can’t think of a nicer and more thoughtful gift than an authentic ancient object from centuries past,” said Gabriel Vandervort, the owner of Ancient Resource Auctions. “The catalog is packed with a wide variety of items, many at low prices. Whether a stocking stuffer or a main gift, there’s something for everybody.”

The bronze figure of Harpokrates – the Greek god of silence, secrets and confidentiality in the Hellenistic tradition – depicts him wearing a Hem Hem crown and a side-lock, his right finger pressed to his lips. Standing 6 ½ inches on an antique wooden base, the Late Period bronze figure is an attractive example with nice detail. It’s expected to change hands for $700-$1,000.

The Mayan polychrome jar from the Ulua Valley of Honduras is another excellent example, with a pre-sale estimate of $800-$1,200. The 6 ¼ inch tall piece represents a shell-form on a flared base, decorated with deeply carved step pyramids and glyphic symbols. Each side of the chamber has a painted solar symbol and the elongated neck is decorated with a rim band of jaguar heads.

The handsome Greek Gnathian skyphos (Apulia, 4th century BC) has a body decorated in a vine motif and features a low pedestal foot and two horizontal loop handles. It measures 2 ¾ inches tall by 4 ¾ inches wide. A skyphos is a deep, cup-shaped vessel with a pair of horizontal handles to the rim, having deeply vertical sides. It’s ancient Greek in origin and should fetch $300-$400.

A large and important Old Assyrian merchant’s weight (circa 1950-1700 BC) not quite two inches long, is expected to command $600-$800. The elongated ovoid weight is rare in this large size and has significant historical value in the early trade between Mesopotamia and Anatolia (modern Turkey) at the beginning of the second millennium BC. It’s probably part of a larger set.

A Near Eastern bronze dagger (circa 1200-1000 BC), with a blade and hilt cast as one piece, 14 ¼ inches in length, has a pre-sale estimate of $500-$800. The hilt is flanged with curved lappets over the guard, which originally held the inlays in place. The blade is long and narrow, with a shallow midrib. The dagger is well-preserved with attractive patination and would display nicely.

An Egyptian alabaster cosmetic container from the Late Period (circa 664-343 BC), in the shape of a stretched oval, 3 2/3 inches tall, should sell for $450-600. The piece, having nice patination, has a rounded base. The sides are tapered toward the mouth, which possesses a round profile, and there’s a small lug handle positioned to each side. The container is neatly hollowed inside.

A beautiful Egyptian beaded necklace with carnelian stone embellishments from the Late Period (circa 664-30 BC), 22 inches long, from the collection of musician Ruth Deyo, should bring $400-$500. The faience disk and tubular beads are in shades of blue and are strung with polished carnelian beads of about the same age. The beads are nicely strung on a modern cord and clasp.

A Greek terracotta figure of a seated woman, dating to the 2nd or 3rd century BC, is estimated to finish at $350-$500. The woman is shown wearing a long gown with open chest and polos, her features nicely modeled and her hands on the sides of her knees. The 3 ¾ inch tall terracotta figure is molded in a dark red-brown ware, with remnants of pigment below mineral deposits.

Graffiti Artist Arman Izadi and Team Bring Fortnite to Life and Engage in Epic Nerf Battle!

Armani Izadi Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Las Vegas graffiti artist, Arman Izadi, is known for his meticulous talent and creative streak. Apart from his artistic endeavors, the businessman has all but transformed the corporate world by moving the needle for companies through his acumen in business development, innovative media and event production. Izadi has also powered some of the biggest nightclubs in the world from Hollywood to Macau.

Recently, the artist took on the social media scene with his #GraffitiMansion project. Armani Izadi has emblazoned his 6,000 square foot Las Vegas mansion multiple times with awe-inspiring murals in Christmas, Halloween and Fortnite themes.

Honing his philanthropic side, the artist has also painted his mansion to draw awareness to the 2017 Vegas shooting and to raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club in Nevada.

In May 2018, Armani Izadi decided to show off his fun side by giving his mansion a top-to-bottom makeover in tribute to Fortnite. Izadi and his team of artists from around the world worked tirelessly on the Fortnite art installation – one of the biggest in the world, documenting the entire process on the artist’s YouTube channel. Arman Izadi began the video with his signature catchphrase, but this time it was charged with a different kind of excitement.

“People keep asking me, ‘what’s the deal?’” the artist says in the video, letting out a mock evil laugh, “I’m thinking it’s a big deal.”

The project even had a Fortnite bus suspended from a hot air balloon hovering over the mansion just like in the game. As a testament to their dedication, the crew built a replica of the titled towers and held an epic Nerf battle!

The mansion itself boasted of popular Fortnite skins; Crackshot, Love Ranger, Raven, Dark Voyager, and Leviathan among others could be seen engaging in combat across the massive edifice. Arman Izadi also sprawled his socials on the installation alongside stylized lettering; “Fortnite Graffiti Mansion” “#BoogieDown” and “Battle Royale”.

Armani Izadi showed his appreciation for acclaimed internet personality and gamer Tyler Blevins “Ninja” whose rise to fame is intertwined with Fortnite. In fact, he is often considered the unofficial face of the game. The artist painted Ninja’s likeness in Fortnite combat gear among the other characters. This didn’t go unnoticed by the gamer, who gave the project a shout out to his over 7-million follower base.

“Thi is super well done,” Ninja said when reacting to the installation. “Great job, honestly, I’d love to meet you and your team someday. When I see all these amazing murals I feel like Fortnite is becoming bigger than a game. It’s awesome.”

Panda Viva Clothing partnered with the Graffiti Fortnite Mansion and announced a new line of apparel; socks, backpacks, and t-shirts were released to commemorate the project.

For Armani Izadi, the road is only just beginning. His talents have taken the social media world by storm, opening multiple doors for him and his team. Having worked with industry heavyweights like Jake and Logan Paul, Jojo Siwa and Faze Rug, the businessman has taken his business to staggering new heights.

Arman Izadi plans to use his influence to bring awareness to worthy causes and help people embrace the transformative power of art. For now, the artist is excited about several new projects in the pipeline and, as always, has his eye on the horizon for the next big adventure.

Highlights include an American-LaFrance steam fire pumper built for the Greensboro, North Carolina Fire Department in 1904. It is a horse drawn steam pumping engine built shortly after the merger of the American Fire Engine Company of Cincinnati, Ohio and the LaFrance Fire Engine Company of Elmira, New York. The company thereafter became known as the American LaFrance Fire Engine Company with a factory in Elmira. This engine was of the LaFrance pattern and was the 496th such engine built by the LaFrance Company, but it was the first engine built under the new company name and might well have been numbered American LaFrance No. 1. It is, therefore, an important machine with regard to the manufacturer's own history. The fire engine was completely restored by Cedar Point in 1971. The estimate is $150,000-$250,000.

Steam powered vehicles are a significant portion of the auction. The Fleming steam traction engine No. 4 from 1907 is the only known steam garden tractor of its kind in the United States. It is being sold together with its own water carriage and carries an estimate of $10,000-$20,000.

There are eleven scale model steam locomotives, including lot 23, a very handsome English 9 ½ inch gauge Great Northern Railway 4-4-2, #251 live steam locomotive with tender and boxcar, estimated at $8,000-$10,000. Lot 28 is an English live steam 2-6-4, 5 inch gauge, 1 inch scale locomotive, together with a partial track. It’s expected to fetch $4,000-$6,000. Some of the locomotives come with tenders and others with passenger cars.

Fairground amusements and early coin-operated games will kick off the auction. Featured lots include lots 4 and 5, two Play-the-Derby arcade machines from 1929 manufactured by the Chester-Pollard Amusement Co. (N.Y.) and lots 2 and 3, two Rock-Ola 1937 World Series baseball arcade machines. All the machines have condition issues and are in need of restoration. They all carry estimates of $2,000-$4,000.

There are machines that tell fortunes, predict love, read palms and characters, and there’s even a screen test arcade machine and vintage Mutoscope movie reel viewers. The auction has a coin-operated Mills Novelty Violano Virtuoso, an automatic music player from the early 20th century playing violin and piano music from perforated paper rolls. The Violano Virtuoso is lot 19 and is expected to fetch $5,000-$7,000.

Fairground curiosities include a full-size apothecary store display from Crestline, Ohio; a full barbershop display; and the post office from Miller City, Ohio. They are wonderful historical displays from yesteryear. Accoutrements from the stores are also available and they include cash registers, antique apothecary bottles, antique medical implements, barber chairs, a barber pole and various display cases.

While antique and vintage amusement park treasures abound, arcade games from the latter half of the 20th century are also featured. How about the Sega Outrun 2 or the Bally Midway Ms. Pac-Man, or Namco’s FourTrax Racing Game that you would play with a friend? The auction includes several boxed lots of hard-to-find parts, and manuals for many arcade game machines. They’ll be a treasure trove for video game enthusiasts from around the world.

The last lot in the auction is sure to attract interest from Trekkies near and far: a reproduction Starfleet Command captain’s chair for Captain Picard, built by the Cedar Fair Entertainment Company. It is electrified and lights up, and can be yours for $80-$120.

The auction will begin promptly at 11am in Gray’s showroom, located at 10717 Detroit Avenue in Cleveland. The catalogue is now online at GraysAuctioneers.com.
