RR Auction: The Paloger Collection of John F. Kennedy Memorabilia, Historic Photographs + Original Negatives
The Paloger Collection will be the first major JFK collection to be offered intact, which was Ronnie Paloger’s intention when he started assembling this collection as a ‘tribute’ to the life and times of JFK. It is his belief that a JFK collection of this magnitude should be permanently housed, maintained, and exhibited for current American and foreign visitors, academics, researchers, authors, and historians and future generations. With this in mind, the whole collection will be offered as Lot 1, at an opening bid of $1.5 million. Should Lot 1 not receive an opening bid, the auction of Lots 2–72 will proceed per our usual auction process.
