I got into buying and selling on eBay because of my love for TV memorabilia. When I started, I wrote about TV toys for various magazines and I even wrote and published a whole book on the subject. As a collector, I was constantly looking to upgrade my collection, so I’d sell items in order to raise the money to buy better items. And that’s how Boris’ Basement began.
September is the time of year when the networks release most of their new shows and old shows begin their new season. So let’s take a look at some of the TV collectibles we currently have in our store.
First off, we have lots and lots of T-Shirts. I can never pass up on a TV tee: X-Files, Doctor Who, True Blood, Supernatural, Star Trek and more.
Next, we have a couple of items from classic TV shows such as an Incredible Hulk pinback from the Bill Bixby / Lou Ferrigno days. We also have a Gilligan’s Island Skipper doll that is an incredible likeness. If you want to go back even further, pick up this Howdy Doody ornament. It’s not vintage but it would make a wonderful addition to your pop culture tree.
We’re always on the lookout to buy TV and Movie memorabilia. If you have one item or a dozen you’d like to sell, please reach out to us at cynthia at TVoftheAbsurd.com with photos of what you have and at least a starter price.
As for the new TV season, I’m really looking forward to the return of Riverdale, Supernatural and Madam Secretary. I’m also going to give Seal Team, The Brave and the new Dynasty a try. What new shows are you looking forward to, this TV season?
