There was also strong interest in the game board collection of Selby Shaver of Dallas, Texas. This auction featured over 50 of Shaver’s boards; additional examples will be offered at Skinner’s October 28th auction. A favorite was the polychrome-painted heart game board that garnered enough competition to require 12 telephone bidders who vied with a host of other absentee bidders and many in the audience. It eventually sold for $18,400, as did a polychrome-painted Parcheesi game board. Nearly all of the game boards in the collection exceeded expectations, further demonstrating the widespread and ongoing interest in game boards from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Skinner sold several from the folk art collection of Peter Brams in February of 2001, including a Parcheesi board that tied the existing auction record for a game board, selling for $46,000.
