What is memorabilia and what do you have?

Memorabilia is best described as objects kept or collected because of their association with memorable people or events. These items are generally collected by fans or supporters that find sentimental and/or monetary value in the items.

The items can have a connection with historical events, culture, entertainment, sports, music or movies. Usually they stir a fond recollection, a worthy experience or remembrance and often these items have great value.

So what tops the list in terms of most valuable? Let’s look at some previous sales:
