Dalshire Int’l to launch monthly memorabilia auction series, March 2
CARROLTON, Texas – Quickly establishing itself as top-rated auction house on LiveAuctioneers, Dalshire International is proud to introduce a next-level suite of listings with its Monthly Platinum Memorabilia Event Auction series starting March 2, 2022.
As hinted earlier, the debut Platinum Event will feature many historically significant, highly valued and one-of-a-kind pieces. Baseball memorabilia such as Ty Cobb’s signed cleats, a very rare “Shoeless” Joe Jackson item, Hall of Fame items and many highly collectible Babe Ruth pieces that are all tangible reminders that these fantastic athletes did, indeed, exist.
Also of historical significance, there are items from the lives of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, JB “Wild Bill” Hickok, John Hancock, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Thomas Jefferson, Napoleon and many more.
Also featured in this event is a very rare Harry Houdini strait jacket (shown at top of page), a Marilyn Monroe dress, and Michael Jackson’s signed loafers, fedora and glove; as well as Charlie Chaplin’s signed hat, cane and boots. Rock legends such as Jim Morrison, the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix are featured, along with items signed by Albert Einstein, Ernest Hemingway and many more.
Perhaps most astonishing amongst this offering is the handwritten Shakespeare poem. Fully authenticated under scrutiny of Charles Hamilton, the foremost authority of his generation, the brief document described in its accompanying letter of certification as a “poem,” is an easily recognized excerpt from the play Othello, spoken by Iago:
“Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,/Is the immediate jewel of their souls. /Who steals my purse steals trash. /’Tis something, nothing; /’Twas mine, ’tis his, and has been slave to thousands. /But he that filches from me my good name /Robs me of that which not enriches him /And makes me poor indeed.”
The text is written in ink on vellum by the bard himself, with his signature and a flawless wax seal.
The March 2, 2022 auction will begin at 9 p.m. EST on LiveAuctioneers. Online absentee bidding is already under way.
