Shock and Awe Defined with Historical Memorabilia at Auction

ATLANTA – Babe Ruth, Richard Nixon, Charles Lindbergh, Walt Disney, Mickey Mantle, JFK, Marilyn Monroe, Grateful Dead, Ty Cobb, Elvis Presley, the Wright Brothers: Who could gather all of these names and many more in one location for one auction with NO MINIMUM OR RESERVE? None other than Red Baron. May 2-4, 2008, they will host the world’s largest memorabilia auction in Atlanta, Georgia.

The collection, taking 38 years to amass over 2000 items, is the success of one man, Mr. Doodle Harris. In the continued efforts of his admirable accomplishment, a portion of proceeds from this auction will benefit charity.

Over $5 million has been invested in these items that have been monumental in American History; they will all be sold with NO MINIMUM and NO RESERVE. To give a brief glimpse of some of the items up for grabs: The Uniform Transfer Agreement that set the “Curse of the Great Bambino” into action trading Babe Ruth from Boston to New York, as well as autographed helmets from every professional football team and many college teams. Presidential and political items ranging from letters and papers from Presidents Nixon, Reagan, Hoover, Teddy Roosevelt, Kennedy, Bush, George W. Bush, Clinton, Garfield, Cleveland, and others to the Bible of Malcolm X, loans from the Union to the Confederacy and a Life magazine autographed by Prince Charles and Princess Diana with their wedding photos. There are numerous guitars and records autographed by leading recording artists from the past 40 years to include: Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Grateful Dead, The Beatles, Beach Boys, Led Zepplin, and hundreds more. Autographed items from those who changed history such as Albert Einstein, Charles Lindbergh, and the Wright Brothers. Also, there is movie memorabilia from every movie and actor from The Wizard of Oz to Star Wars to The Lord of the Rings.

Nothing like this has ever been seen, much less been sold. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, that shouldn’t be missed. The breadth and depth of this collection is too profound to be put into words.

To add to this extraordinary sale, Red Baron’s will hold it in conjunction with its Spring Car Auction where over 100 collectible, luxury and exotic cars will be sold (some cars will have a reserve).
