The highly anticipated Supreme Vault collection has officially gone live at Sotheby’s online bidding platform. Yes, that insane assortment of coveted Supreme accessories produced from 1998 to 2018 that’s every hardcore Supreme collector’s dream. In total, there are 162 lots up for grabs (several of which are sets that feature multiple pieces), easily crossing the 1000-piece mark (1300 to be specific), making it one of the largest Supreme collections ever put up for sale on an online auction platform.
It’s hard to believe, but the collection is in fact a private collection owned by collector Yukio Takahashi, one that he has amassed over the past decade. If you’re based in Hong Kong, here’s the good news. You can take a look at every single piece up close at an exhibition that’s held at Hart Hall along Queen’s Road Central from 24 to 28 May. If not, you can always head over here to view (and bid on) the products online.
Highlight items include the Coleman Mini Bike, Everlast boxing equipment (the gloves and punching bag), and even the rare Stern pinball machine that has an auction estimate of HKD400,000 to HKD600,000. On the other end of the spectrum, there are pieces that you can easily get on the secondary resale market, such as Supreme pens and markers, as well as Asian-inspired chopsticks and bowls. The plus point is that these common pieces are grouped up in sets, so if you had trouble finding one or the other, the good news is that you can place a bid for the entire lot, and add the whole set to your Supreme collection.
Auction ends on 28 May at 1100 hours (Singapore time). Which lot(s) have you got your eye on? Go.
