What’s the Significance of Ephemera?

In the collecting world of ephemera auctions, ephemera refer to those items that were only meant to be used for a short period of time. Ephemera collectors essentially collect paper ephemera, like letters, tickets, labels and greeting cards. However, the value of ephemera items spikes up if they include an autograph or signature from a famous person. Many ephemera collections have been donated to different libraries all across the world and can be viewed by seeking appointment in the library archives. The highest price ever paid for a letter at ephemera auctions was $6 million in 2013 because the letter was written by Francis Crick, one of the co-discoverers of DNA’s nature, to his son explaining the secret of life.
