David Koon and Brian Chilson are on hand at the warehouse where the Jennings Osborne collection is up for auction today as his estate tries to work out the financial chaos left after his death.
There are slot machines (above). Many fur coats (below). Arcade games. Ventriloquist dummies. Autographs and memorabilia (a baseball signed by Babe Ruth) of the famous and infamous (Heidi Fleiss boxer shorts).
David will be chronicling this final public walk of an outsized public figure in a future Times cover story. I hope Brian will get a slide show up eventually on all the stuff.
UPDATE: Lots of video from Brian Chilson above. Jennings was a heckuva shopper. Note the collection of model cars early on. Also, personal effects auction continues tomorrow. Memorabilia goes on the block Saturday.
