Why Donate or Consign
When you donate or consign an item to a TSHA Auction you are ensuring we can continue our mission to foster the appreciation, understanding, and teaching of the rich and unique history of Texas and, by example and through programs and activities, encourage and promote research, preservation, and publication of historical material affecting the state of Texas. Working with the world’s largest collectibles auctioneer in Heritage Auctions, TSHA is able to provide diverse collecting expertise, huge client base, technical savvy, marketing prowess and financial power to the table in order to make sure you get the most for your treasures. Heritage Auctions has broken countless price records in all collectibles categories, and holds several Guinness World Records including the highest-grossing Comic Book and Popular Culture auction (over $5.2 million in October 2002 for the Nicolas Cage comic book collection and other properties) and the highest price for an action figure ($200,000 for Don Levine's original G.I. Joe prototype in July 2003). We count numerous household-name celebrities and pop culture icons among our regular clients, bidders and consignors.
Whether you have an extensive collection, or just a few rare specimens from a diversified asset portfolio, we welcome your inquiry and look forward to helping you receive the most for your collectibles.
If that isn’t enough to convince you to donate or consign, as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, your contribution to TSHA through donation or consignment is also tax deductible. For more details please contact TSHA at 940-369-5200.
The live auction has been a tradition of the Texas State Historical Association for many years before becoming dormant. With the help of J.P. Bryan and Heritage Auctions, the Live Auction was revived with great success in 2010. Since 2010, with the help of Heritage Auctions, TSHA has raised more than $220,000 for its programs.
