Live Auctions

Back to the Past Collectibles is Detroit’s premier auction house for pop culture memorabilia of all kinds!

Back to the Past - Auction Day

We offer treasures from both our own warehouse and other consigners from across the US.

Main event auctions are held in our physical showroom (directions) and are also accessible online via Most auction events have a 1-hour inspection and registration window, so you can take your time looking over the lots.

Can’t Join Us In Person? No Problem!

If you’re unable to join us in person on auction day, we highly recommend using Proxibid to place absentee bids.

Using Proxibid is Easy

You can browse session catalogs, prebid and join live via the video feed on auction day all through Proxibid.

If you prefer not to use Proxibid, we do accept prebidding via phone-in and email. For select high-value lots, phone bidding can be done live during the auction by appointment, but we do not suggest it for most situations. Contact us for information.

Safe & Affordable Shipping

If you’re not local to our Redford, Michigan showroom, our veteran shipping team uses both UPS and US Postal Service to find the best balance between cost and safely getting your items to your doorstep. All packages are tracked and insured, so you can have full confidence when you bid with Back to the Past!

I just wanted to email to tell you how much I appreciate the fact that the auctioned items I purchased were clean, well packed and organized. The shipment arrived in excellent condition.
