The Gotham Antiquarian Society is an organization dedicated to the collection and preservation of old relics, pieces of art and decorations.
The Antiquarian Society held a charity auction where they sold some valuable items to the highest bidder and the money would go towards helping people in need. Bruce Wayne and Richard Grayson attended the auction and Bruce spent some money buying items that Dick considered useless.
The night of the auction, The Clock King appeared and stole an antique clock by making it disappear in front of everybody. The incident caused for the auction to be closed and the stealing of the clock was taken to the police for further investigation.
