I’ve shown you just a few of the collectibles that sold during the live auction at the convention. (That's the "Coke Stuff Sells for How Much?" post, if you want to take a look.)

As often occurs with Coke collectibles, you'll see quite a range of prices from the Dallas auction (from $10 to $1,700). Item 224, a plastic hanging lamp (pictured above), sold for $10.
Item 52, an outdoor Coke clock from the 1950s, sold for $500.
And the highest price of the day came for Item 132 (pictured below), a 1960s starburst light-up piece that sold for $1,700.
You can see these pieces and more in the auction results. The Club's site is a great place to check if you're wondering what something is selling for – and to gauge today's prices for

So if you have a house full of Coke pieces, check out the Collectors Club site to see if you've got an early retirement coming your way!
And of course, I hope you'll come back regularly to my blog for more about Coke collectibles and the collectors themselves!
