    Ralph Kovel"Ralph M. Kovel, a nationally known writer on antiques who for more than half a century put prices on the stuff of life, from baseball cards to bottle caps to Barbie’s lucrative girdles, died on Aug. 28 in Cleveland. He was 88 and lived in Shaker Heights, Ohio, in a house outfitted with midcentury enamelware, vintage board Kovel Price Guide 2009games, Mission and Egyptian Revival furniture, Biedermeier cabinets and a fully re-created 19th-century general store in the basement. With his wife Terry, Ralph published 97 books, the most recent of which, “Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2009”, is scheduled to be published in October, 2008." Read the rest of this New York Times obituary here.
