...
Sakow began his massive American memorabilia collection in 1951 at the age of six with a Howdy Doody wristwatch with moving eyes.His father owned a department store which became the source for some of the mint-condition items in the collection particularly the now-rare toys.What makes the collection especially fascinating is that items that originally were bought for pennies, nickels and dimes now are worth hundreds, and sometimes, thousands, of dollars.Many of the toys in the collection are in excellent and mint condition - many with original tags and boxes.Today, the massive private collection of Americana memorabilia is a testament to the icons of Neil's childhood and exists because of Neil's love of collecting."Neil Sakow is the keeper of the kingdom," says the Providence Journal.
...
Serious American collectors seeking investment-quality "nearly impossible to find" memorabilia which are not presented within this catalog may contact Neil directly with inquiries about extremely rare items or visit the museum by appointment only.
