The auction of the former president’s autographed ball, a one-of-a-kind artifact, for $7 million will set the stage for an incredible evening in Los Angeles.
Bidding on the ball began Wednesday night on eBay for a staggering $2,626,000.
The auctioneer, who goes by the pseudonym “Pete,” says the ball belonged to President Donald Trump, who died at the age of 96 in late January.
He plans to auction it off Friday at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Pete, who lives in Florida, said he has been selling President Trump memorabilia for decades and was shocked when he found out that the ball was his.
He said he hopes the auction will bring some national attention to the president’s legacy and will bring a new generation of collectors into the auction business.
“I feel like the auction is going to change people’s minds about the president,” Pete said.
The ball, which Pete said has been in the family for decades, was originally a gift from former President Gerald Ford.
It was given to Trump by his son, Eric Trump.
The Ball, which was originally intended to be used for an auction, was placed on the auction block last year for a record-setting price of $3.9 million, the highest in history.
It sold for $1.9 billion.
The $2 million auction price is higher than any other ball auction in history and it marks the first time in history a president has sold a ball for more than $2 billion.
Pete said the ball is one of the most valuable pieces of memorabilia in the world and he is very grateful for the chance to share it with the world.
“It’s a piece of history that will be a collector’s item for a long time,” he said.
