We have been getting calls and emails constantly asking if we have the new Donald Trump 2017 congressional inaugural invitations and ceremonies tickets for sale. The simple answer has been "no, not yet".
The reason is simple. As has been true for every inauguration over the last 40+ years we have been in the presidential collectibles business, the prices for items like these are grossly inflated by merchants immediately after and during the inauguration. We don't believe that is fair to collectors.
For instance, on ebay right now people are offering 2017 Congressional Invitation sets for as much $500. If history is a good indication of future values - and it almost always is - these invitations will be selling for $125 or less after the hysteria subsides.
The same holds true for tickets to the inaugural ceremonies. We saw one person offering their ticket for $1,500 immediately after the inauguration ceremonies. This same type of ticket will no doubt be for sale for under $60 in just a few months.
We take our position as one of the leading dealers in Inaugural collectibles very seriously - including a responsibility to our good customers.
That's why we will wait to offer these items to our customers until prices come down to responsible levels.
