Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.
What is your collection?
Kind regards,
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
1974 the full set of 5 Leroy Neiman "sketches" ??? of Nebraska football made and signed by Leroy Neiman and coach Bob Devaney. I don't want to lug the collection down there tomorrow if they are too "new " to consider for the show.
Expert:  Doris replied 2 years ago.
Several years ago, people at the Antiques Roadshow event that I attended had all sorts of items to be assessed. There did not seem to be any fixed rules about what age item to bring.
Still "antiques" are usually considered to be items over 100 years old.
Again, I saw all types/ages of items.
A private seller to a dealer can expect 40-60% of retail value.
I hope I have helped you.

Ok if you were going to the Antiques Roadshow tomorrow, would you bring the collection of 5 big Leroy Neimans or one sheet of uncut $2 bills with both Bill Gates and Warren Buffets signature?
Expert:  Doris replied 2 years ago.
I would take the one sheet of uncut $2 bills with Bill Gates and Warren Buffets signatures.
I did see that they take more than one like collection per person. That is, one person cannot bring more than one set of similar items.
If you want to take your Leroy Neimans, bring another person with you that can get that collection appraised.
Kind regards,
