Memorabilia Sells — Sometimes for a Lot!!

9 Sep

Yes, we love celebrities, our sports teams, and nostalgia. As a result (and aided by the Web), collectibles have become big sellers. And auctions can real pump up the prices — it only takes two to drive up the bidding.

Would you pay $46,000 for this Tom Brady football jersey? That’s what the final bid was at a 2011 Super Bowl charity auction? Click the jersey image for a memorabilia story from the Wall Street Journal.
