Much ado about…..

See and Dream…

Posted by gottabkd on Sunday, November 12, 2006

So I was surfing the web and came across this auction house called Bonham's and noticed that they were selling Steve McQueen/motorcycle memorabilia.

Very cool me thinks…..

Low and behold they apparently they have his Belstaff motorcycle jacket that he wore while riding….. and it’s estimated sale price is a mere $5000…. I cannot believe that they do not think it will fetch more money…. hmmm like say maybe $10,000 or $15,000 more I would think.

Sure enough the final fetching price came in at whopping $28,000. This only leads me to believe that the appraiser of these items may have underestimated the popularity of motorcycling and really had no clue about this type of memorabilia… Even a stunt T-shirt fetched three grand.

Not everything was sold during the November auction, and you can bid on-line…. So if your into good old Steve McQueen and more into motorcycles, the are still some things left. Unfortunately, most of this stuff is too rich for my pennies but it’s kinda cool to see and dream just the same.
