Picture this: An exclusive auction of priceless Hollywood memorabilia, surrounded by wealthy prospective bidders. The star item of the collection is brought to the stage, but some idiot wearing glasses trips and falls bringing it to the podium, and the item (let’s say, a vase from Gone with the Wind or something) is destroyed. Thankfully, this didn’t happen, but it sort of automatically springs to mind with the news of Julien’s Auctions upcoming Property from the Estate of Jerry Lewis auction.
Here are some of the items being sold to the highest bigger in the Property from the Estate of Jerry Lewis event:
- “18K yellow gold Patek Philippe given to him by Sammy Davis, Jr. engraved on the back To Jerry From Sammy Jr.’ (estimate: $6,000-$8,000)”
