It's absolutely wild to see well known auction houses (read: Not Heritage Auctions) selling anime cels. First it was Sotheby's Hong Kong and now Bonham...it all blows my mind as a long term anime cel collector because, for decades, they went under the radar of the auction world.

Good luck to those who decided to participate. I honestly don't feel that the Sailor Moon cel is worth the estimated price of $2-3K.

Edit - I am tempted to sign up to the Zoom crash course on all things anime to hear about how to preserve cels. I've only been collecting them for 15+ years so I can't wait to hear what the experts have to say lol

Store them in mylar bags Rolling Eyes

As a former used & rare bookseller (and a sometime student book conservation), I can assure you that length of time collecting is no guarantee of knowledge of handling & conservation.

I agree, however I, along with many other production artwork collectors, have done lengthy research into the subject. We know better than to put cels into mylar bags.

All these auctions are doing is driving up the cost of cels. i used to be able to go to conventions and pick up 5 or 6 Key Frames for around $200 but now one of thoose same cels or even an in-between goes for several grand at auction.

A bunch of new ones have been uploaded (120ish). They're pretty much all $500 minimum, with a majority in the thousands.
