Rasdale Stamp Company in Westmont, Illinois Expands into Auction of All Types of Collectables
The Rasdale Stamp Company from Westmont, Illinois will be auctioning not just stamps collections. In addition to stamps and coins, they will be auctioning a wide array of many other popular collectables in every auction, expanding their services beyond their traditional market.

WESTMONT, Illinois – Jan 4, 2020 – The Rasdale Stamp Company will be expanding its traditional auction sales. Founded in 1932, the Rasdale Stamp Company is the oldest family owned and operated stamp auction house in the United States. In addition to stamps and coins, they will now be auctioning a wide array of many other popular collectables in every auction.

With a variety of experts supported by a thorough research department, the Rasdale family offers services for selling stamps, coins or other collectables, helping collectors bring their items to the broader market. With the markets surging with collections ranging from books and stamps, to toys and bicycles, the term collectable no longer means stamps. Just about anything that has a cultural history and social impact can be collected. And if it can be collected that means it can be sold. So, auction houses have had to alter how they do business. No longer can auction houses survive off of selling just one type of collectable. Think what would happen if Sothebey’s sold only turn of the century gold gilded tea cups. For that market they might lead the pack, but they have been experts at diversifying into all types of rare antiques and even into the real estate business.

The Rasdale Stamp Company is doing just that by diversifying their auction portfolio. Stamp collecting may have helped them become the oldest family owned and operated auction house in the United States but with stamp collecting popularity on the decline, auctioning stamps won’t let them grow into the future. That is why they are broadening their auction expertise into all things collectables. This is a new era for auction houses and what qualifies as a “collectable” ready for auction sale. Value can hardly have strict definition while social trends and culture changing how each new generation views the world. Each new generation creates a new definition for what is collectable as trends ebb and wane with advances in technology and changing living styles and tastes. What was once looked down on is popular and what was held in high esteem is now completely unwanted. Value is only what one is willing to pay. And Chicago auction houses, like Rasdale, are at the center of the valuation process.

The Rasdale Stamp Company will be embarking on a journey that will take their family company to new corners of the modern cultural world fraught with pop culture, clashing culture, emerging culture, and forgotten culture. As they learn from their future growth they will need to be flexible or they will be as lost as the forgotten treasures they once sold.
