Customer Question
I have a personal...

I have a personal letter from Ray Bradbury from 1969. Hand type-written and signed by him. Is there a value for this?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

My wife sent him some of her sci-fi stories in 1969, for him to read. He responded with story writing advise for her, and then he detailed his writing-life from his beginning, to 1969.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Only that we still have the envelope, PO stamped, and his return address on the back.
