In what will surely be the greatest monster matchup since ABBOTT & COSTELLO met FRANKENSTEIN in 1948, Blacksparrow Auctions is teaming up with Dr. Shocker (noted character actor Daniel Roebuck’s alter ego) to offer movie fans a once in a lifetime collectible event, DR. SHOCKER’S AUCTION OF HORROR!
This will be a rare opportunity to relive the pop culture explosion of classic monster and horror memorabilia of the late 20th century through the collection of one of its most avid fans, Daniel Roebuck. For nearly half a century, Roebuck has fostered a passion for classic monster and horror film collectibles. This love for all things monster related eventually grew so large that Roebuck, inspired by Forry Ackerman and Bob Burns, opened his own museum, DR. SHOCKER’S HOUSE OF HORROR!
Now this comprehensive cross section of his amassed treasures is being passed on, including a vintage Bride of Frankensteintheatrical banner poster, dozens of lobby cards, autographs, original artwork, wax figures, vintage dolls, props, life masks, and many of the classic toys once offered in the pages of Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine. The live auction event will take place at the Chinese 6 Theaters of the world famous TCL Chinese Theaters in Hollywood, California on October 26, 2013. A print catalog, featuring ShockerVision, is available for pre-order now at blacksparrowauctions.com.
