Andrea Roth will guide a discussion with Darren Julien on the valuation of Hollywood and Rock ‘n’ Roll memorabilia. As one of the fastest growing markets in collectibles, celebrity memorabilia often appears in residential contents and must be addressed by personal property appraisers. Darren will take us through the challenges of assigning values on a variety of iconic items from gowns to guitars. We will learn about the most collectible celebrities, how value estimates are based, what are general characteristics of value and how the market has transformed in the past few years.
