I went to Chris Economaki's auction in the Charlotte area when they shut down National Speed Sport News.

I bid on many, many things and was fortunate enough to buy 4 frames filled with credentials, parking passes, invitations, decals, patches, buttons and ephemera issued to Chris dating back to the 50's for events all over the world. F1, Carrera Pan America, World Championship of Makes, LeMans, IMSA, NASCAR, CART, Indy 500, Terre Haute, NHRA, Sebring, Bonneville, TransAm and Indycars at Silverstone in 1978!

You name it--they are here.

Here's the thing, I almost feel guilty hanging them in my office and keeping them selfishly to myself.

I am considering both keeping them or donating them to an appropriate museum.

Would any of you have any way to value them for both insurance and tax write-off purposes?

Grainy photos are here--I will attempt to take better pictures over the weekend. http://gallery.me.co...coughlin#100754
