Justuff League

Do you live for the hunt? Do you eat, breathe, & sleep pop culture, fine art, & antiques – or do you just want to know more? Do comic books keep you up at night, do all those unloved antiques keep you tossing and turning, is that dusty old portrait or modern abstract flashing before you when you close your eyes? Is it because they might be worth something, or because they might be worthless… and you just don’t know? Whether collecting & selling as a career or a hobby, find out what’s hot and what’s not with the Justuff League podcast. Every week, the guys will guide & entertain you in the world of pop culture, collectibles, fine art, & antiques! The Justuff League is… Travis Landry is the Director of Pop Culture and an auctioneer at Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers. He specializes in toys, comic books, urban art and contemporary art, but also has a passion for everything antique. When not in the office, Travis travels around the country searching for rare toys & comics for auction, appears as a pop culture expert panelist at comic conventions, and is a collectibles and toys & games appraiser for PBS’ Antiques Roadshow. Previously, you may have seen him on Travel Channel’s Toy Hunter or read The Ultimate Guide to Vintage Transformers Action Figures, which he co-wrote with author Mark Bellomo. Kevin Bruneau is the owner and president of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers. His twenty-five plus years’ antiquarian experience is what propelled Bruneau & Co. to become New England’s premier auction house specializing in fine art, antiques, & pop culture. Aside from overseeing all inventory and photography for the company, Kevin is also the lead auctioneer and a specialist in antiques, fine art, and Asian arts. If he looks familiar, you probably saw him on PBS’ Market Warriors. When not in the gallery, Kevin is on the road managing house calls and looking for that next great collection! James Supp is an antiquarian and owner of the Coronado Trading Company. He started in the field reproducing medieval armor and has since gone on to study many aspects of material culture, specializing in the study of pre-industrial manufacturing methods. He has a breadth of knowledge and speaks on varied subjects from the history of playing cards to the evolution of footwear. The stranger and more esoteric the subject, the more it fascinates him. When not in the office, James travels throughout the Midwest providing collection consultations and filming for PBS’ Antiques Roadshow as a collectibles and toys & games appraiser.
