Oscars, Emmys, and Sylvania Awards. Over the years we’ve owned thousands of awards — including military medals, baseball rings, silver platters, etc. — but we’ve only owned fewer than a dozen Oscars, Emmys, and Sylvania Awards. Valuation is extremely varied and nuanced because of the many factors involved.
Oscars are typically sold for around $20,000 to $100,000 or more, and are not actually allowed to be sold (although, obviously, it happens). Prices vary due to condition, but mostly in relation to the name of the movie and the person honored. Valuation differences follow a similar path with Emmys. Daytime Emmys sell for $100 to $300. Primetime and sports Emmys typically go for $500 to $2,000, unless the recipient was really famous — and then they’ve sold for as much as $20,000.
We recently purchased these two Emmys (pictured) for famous Olympic sporting events for $2,000 each. They are for sale in our offices for $3,000 each. Also pictured is a Sylvania award from 1952 that was made in the form of an art deco clock. This one is valuable because of who used to own it — John Lennon, who among other things, was a collector of antiques. I bought it from Yoko Ono; it’s in my collection.
