CLEVELAND, OH – Have a shoebox of baseball cards? A signed jersey? Maybe even your grandfather’s military uniform? Considering bringing them to “Man Cave Trash or Treasure,”  a verbal appraisal event taking place on Saturday, April 11 at the WRHS History Center in University Circle.

Professional appraisers will be on-hand to provide verbal appraisals from 10 am to 4 pm. The History Center will remain open to the public until 5 pm. Visitors are welcome to bring up to 5 individual items or 2 collections (comic books, baseball cards, etc.) for verbal appraisals. In addition to the cost of admission ($10 adults, $5 children ages 3-12), each single item appraisal is $5 and each collection appraisal is $25. Items in the following categories will be accepted:

  • Sports memorabilia
  • Coins
  • Stamps
  • Militaria (no firearms, please)
  • Toys and comics
  • Trains

“We are thrilled to continue on with our signature appraisal day event this spring,” said Kelly Falcone-Hall, WRHS President & CEO. “This year’s theme ties directly into the recently extended 1964: When Browns Town was Title Town exhibit, which featured great sports memorabilia and allowed us to entertain the idea of a ‘man cave’ event for its visitors. We hope attendees can find value in some of the items that they have had in their possession for years; it’s intriguing to think of the stories behind some of the items that might come through our doors at the History Center on April 11.”

This year’s annual event features appraisers from Fusco’s Auctions, Great Lakes Coin & Jewelry, Milestone Auctions, Quaker Square Comics, and CW Trains, LLC. Representatives from the Siegel & Shuster Society will also be on site to discuss the developments of a Superman statue planned for the lakefront. The group is dedicated to promoting Cleveland as the place where Superman was created as well as the hometown of the two men who made him a reality.

Last year’s event, which featured Wes Cowan and his team from Cowan’s Auctions, welcomed nearly 300 guests. Visitors planning to attend are encouraged to pre-register in advance, either online or by calling (216) 721-5722 ext. 1502. Those who have questions about the acceptability of their items should call that same number.
