At the Reliant Center, appraisers find a rich brew of objects, including a scrimshaw walrus tusk depicting the Almira, America's longest-working whaling ship; a collection of rare, unopened packs of Topps football cards from 1958, featuring such legends as Johnny Unitas and Bart Starr; and a book of Mexican War battlefield illustrations that draws an insurance value of $45,000 to $50,000.
