Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Here we go again.
Having recently blogged about people willing to spend lots of money for stuff like Lee Harvey Oswald’s actual coffin and Bernard Madoff’s actual underwear, I now learn that a very rare autographed photo of Jesse James will be auctioned, probably for something north of $20,000-$30,000.
I just don’t understand stuff like this.
This is the same Jesse James whose Wikipedia entry calls him an “outlaw, gang leader, bank robber, train robber and murderer.”
But because he took a break from those activities for long enough to sign this one photo of himself well over a century ago, it’s now a hot item?
How do you suppose that lone autograph even came about, anyhow?
