Today the Duke's memorabilia items are cherished and sought after by enthusiasts around the world.

Movie icon, and Hollywood western hero, John Wayne is as popular today as he was at the height of his career. In a recent poll taken to rank America's top all time action stars, the Duke came in a strong second to Harrison Ford. This is over twenty five years after his death. Needless to say Mr. COWBOY is the 'avartar' for the western genre.

The market for Hollywood cowboy collectibles has become very active, as many of the same fans that grew up with 'Duke' Wayne as their cowboy hero in the forties, fifties and sixties are now avid collectors. Add to that, the fact that many of those same items are now truly rare, and you can see why collecting vintage Wayne merchandise has become a smart collectible investment area.

Prices - Vintage "John Wayne" Collectibles

As is true of all collectibles the "law of supply and demand" controls prices, and the Duke's collectibles are no exception. Some of the more common items, such as personally autographed photos can readily be found for under $50, while the harder to find collectibles like items that Duke owned or used in films have been known to command prices over $1000, in excellent condition.
