Waddington's ("Canada's Auction House") has a 20th Century Design auction scheduled for March 31, 2010 that begins with a 40-lot subsection devoted to Soviet/Russian Space Program Artifacts.
Also included is a collection of items from the Russian Space Program.

The prices realized are available as a PDF via Waddington's website (note prices are noted in Canadian dollars).

Canadian dollars are almost at par with $US at the moment. I live in Toronto, but an interview precluded the auction. Most of the stuff apparently never saw the hammer.

Looking at realized prices including premium, they are high for those lots actually sold, compared to other recent auctions. Winning Canadian bidders must also add 15% tax to these prices. $560 for Gagarin? I got both Yuri and Valentina in '07 through Regency for about half of that. Oh well - auctions get what the market will bear...

I own similar hardware items. Most hardware items didn't reach their target anymore than similar (or same) items on eBay, with a few notable exceptions:

Item 33 - 3,360$ - Flown Soyuz TM-33 Descent Module Yaw Thruster Heat Shield Cover

Item 34 - 3,120$ - Flown Soyuz TMA-1 Descent Module Heat Sheild Ablative Roll
Thruster Engine Cover

Item 40 - 4,560$ - Flown Soyuz TM-33 Descent Module Polarized Observation Porthole (Port View)

All times are CT (US)
