The Pugliese Pop Culture Collection may well be the finest collection focusing on 20th Century pop culture ever privately assembled. Approximately eight hundred and fifty of the most extraordinary objects imaginable from the worlds of motion pictures, popular music, magic, television and politics were gathered over several decades by Anthony Pugliese, a man who might well be described as a true visionary. A small sampling of the Collection's treasures include Houdini's straightjacket, the Maltese Falcon statuette, Christopher Reeves' Superman suit, John Lennon's Abbey Road suit, Elvis Presley's personal rifle collection and the gun that Jack Ruby used to kill Lee Harvey Oswald. Indeed, Mr. Pugliese is sharing his wonderful Collection with the rest of the world as he shifts his interests towards the creation of Destiny, the nation's largest eco-sustainable community currently being sensitively created in central Florida. A portion of the proceeds from this remarkable event are earmarked for the Audubon Society, long known for its important environmental work. If you have any questions about this one-of-a-kind Collection or the auction itself, please contact Guernsey's.
