Morphy Auctions Interesting Toys
(June 24, 2016 Auction)

I'm always looking for new toys. Sometimes, I will visit past auctions of toy auctioneers to see what they auctioned off a while ago. This time however, I was wandering around the Net, when I came across a website called Global Auction Guide. The website is similar to Liveauctioneers in that it promotes new upcoming auctions, as well as keeping old and finished auctions.

The Global Auction Website  had some nice photos of a Morphy Auction that was held on June 24, 2016. I figured that it would be easier to visit the Morphy auction website, but when I did, this particular auction and not to be seen. Obviously, you could only go back in time so much on the Morphy Auction website.
