For us to be able to offer all 8 items in one lot, on eBay, in an auction style format, selling to the highest bidder, no reserve and starting less than a dollar … where else does this happen?”

“The Buffalo Bill Cody collection is a time capsule of the old west and U.S. history that has remained in the hands of family members since William Buffalo Bill” Cody died in 1917,” says Norb Novocin, owner of Estate Auctions, Inc.

“We handle many interesting antiques, but this lot stands out as an historical artifact.  It is an honor to actually handle family mementos of this caliber.” said Norb and Marie’s son Andy.

Included in the collection is, two dedicated and signed cabinet card photos of Buffalo Bill Cody. A first edition of his very first book in 1879, dedicated and signed by him. Two never before seen photos of him, one, an ambrotype of him at 4 years of age and the second, a rare style of photo, a Crystoleum Plate, of him circa mid 1870’s.

He was wildly popular in his day and was the first true international celebrity, arguably the first superstar of the modern world.

We are pleased to announce that we’ve negotiated a deal for a lot of personal belongings of “Buffalo Bill” Cody. A couple of items in the lot include his personal traveling pipe and mustache comb with their provenance. Pictures and details will be coming soon!

William Frederick Cody (1846-1917) earned the name “Buffalo Bill” for killing thousands of buffalo as a hired hunter in 1867 and 1868. Cody had begun his Wild West career herding cattle at age nine. Five years later, he became the Pony Express’ youngest rider. Throughout the Civil War, Cody worked as a government scout, extracting from life and the West all it had to offer. His western notoriety grew with his adventures, including those during the Sioux War, in which he purportedly fought a duel with Chief Yellow Hand. Cody’s theatrical career was launched that same year with his re-enactments of such Indian battles. Historic autograph.
