Antique Toy Museum

Tuesday, December 28th through Sunday, January 16th closing at 5:00pm.




Russ was an avid toy collector.  He traveled the country looking for his early pressed steel childhood toys of which he amassed an incredible collection.  Some of the Buddy “L” pressed steel toys came from the private collection of Richard Keats who was the former owner of the Buddy “L” Toy Company.  Many of his toys were purchased at high end auction houses across the country during the 1980s and 1990s.  Russ also enjoyed traveling to swap meets such as Hershey, PA to add items to his collections. His toy museum has been on display at the Freeland Antique Mall in Freeland, MI for 2 years and the family has decided it is time for it to be auctioned off. 

The auction will begin on Tuesday, December 28th, 2021 and ends Sunday, January 16th, 2022 beginning at 5:00pm. It is ONLINE ONLY on, however bidders are welcome to attend the online auction onsite at the Freeland Antique Mall and buyers will save on shipping by picking up their toy purchases on Sunday, January 16th.  We do ship toys via FedEx ground and USPS.
