“That was a month before he was killed,” Meader said. “That puts things into perspective.”

The collection has been on exhibit to the public since the beginning of the week, and so far hundreds of people from all over the country have come to see the memorabilia for themselves. The preview continues today from 1 to 7 p.m. and tomorrow from 8 to 11 a.m. before the auction begins.

McInnis said Thursday that the seating for tomorrow’s auction is nearly sold out, and hundreds of bids have already been placed on the auction house’s website. McInnis said anyone is welcome to place a bid, whether it’s $50 or $50,000.

As for how much the collection could fetch as a whole? McInnis didn’t even want to speculate.

“The sky’s the limit,” he said.
