The Texas Rangers Collection

Artwork Inquiry

We specialize in authentic artifacts and memorabilia from the legendary Texas Rangers, the oldest statewide law enforcement organization (est. 1823) in the United States. Although authentic Ranger items are extremely difficult to acquire, we usually have a small selection of historic items on hand, including great photographs and other collectibles, and original art work honoring the history and heritage of the Rangers.

In addition, we have been retained by a private collector to assist in the deaccession of an extensive collection of authentic, one-of-a-kind Texas Rangers artifacts. This is one of the finest and largest individual collections (almost 100 individual items) we have ever seen outside a museum. In fact, some of the items in this collection were once part of the legendary YO Ranch Collection and some are directly from the Texas Rangers Museum & Hall of Fame. This collection would be a significant acquisition for a public or private institution and we would be honored to play a role in its placement in a museum. Special pricing consideration will be given to any public or private institution.

Please contact the gallery for information on available items and pricing.
