More Treasures From Vincent Price Collectors Revealed!

Posted By on Thu, May 19, 2011 at 12:50 PM

The Vincentennial display at the Sheldon Galleries is so small -- a mere 750 square feet -- that there wasn't room to display even a fair sample of all the artifacts the Vincent Price collectors have assembled. Rick Squires has posted photos of many of his treasures online at the Vincent Price Exhibit.

After being interviewed for this week's feature story "Back From the Undead," collector Robert Taylor sent along photos of Price-iana that didn't make it into the exhibit:
