On June 1, 1968, former Houston mayor Judge Roy Hofheinz opened the Astroworld theme park in the heart of Houston, Texas. Although the park closed its gates in 2005, fans now have the chance to bring a piece of the park’s history home!
Through a partnership with BRI Marketing and Promotions and SITE Auction Services, a massive offering of Astroworld signage, memorabilia and park fixtures are crossing the auction block.
The auction is being held on February 23, 2019 with online bidding offered through astroworldauction.com. Live bidding will also be accepted in person at 7710 East Freeway.
According to president of SITE Auction Services, Ken Spicer, the collectibles have gained more notoriety after popular rapper and Houston native Travis Scott named his latest album after the park. Several items have been used in Scott’s current tour stage production, further adding to the remaining pieces’ desirability.
“This is a unique opportunity for collectors of Astroworld memorabilia, Warner Bros. theme park collectibles and large collectible signage. Round out or begin a collection with some of the most sought-after items on the current marketplace,” Spicer continued. “We’re beyond excited to be a part of what has become a huge release of these items.”
