Altoona, IA 2018/03/31

This was a surprisingly small Spring auction. Very few redemption pieces and not a single jukebox. Still, a pretty good crowd despite being the day before Easter. Prices seemed a little higher than usual for videogames but that could have been due to the smaller quantites available. The auction completed in just under 3 hours. Check out the results. The next auction should be the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

Altoona, IA 2017/11/25

This event marked the 30th anniversary of Tom Rhodes hosting amusement auctions in the Des Moines area. The large event room at Adventureland was absolutely packed full of machines, sometimes making it nearly impossible to move around between the crowd and the over 500 lots for sale. Luckily, the live video and monitors helped everyone get a glimpse of what was currently being sold. The good-sized assortment of modern pins reeled in some record high bids. Video games were the dominant items as usual, mostly '90s and '00s varieties, but a handful of very nice '80s classics were also available. Probably missed the last 50 items since the sale lasted so long (and I hadn't had lunch). Check out the auction results. No confirmed date on the next sale, but probably look for another event sometime in March, 2018.
