With over 650 lots scheduled to go across the auction block today, the popular museum collection items continue to sell for good solid prices.
Wow Unbelieveable. What a testatmet to the depth and range of this collection. Sorry I have never or willl never see it all together. This man has a lot of heart and energy. I would want to buy something say Tee Nee related items, since I am a Lyman person, just to get close to that energy. I am glad that the prices seem to be good, hopeing that all the items lovingly collected will be taken care of and that saves me from having to find a place where to save, store and maybe use or display them. Congradulations for showing so much heart Mr. M. and to the new stewards of the collection. By the3 way great price on that plastic boat! The trailer alone is $2000.
I had the pleasure of attending Friday’s auction at the warehouse and then seeing the collection in it’s entirety at the Willmar Civic Center. To see it all so beautifully displayed was an incredible experience to say the least. To think of how this entire collection came to be is amazing, WOW!
