Was odd from day 1. Basically my recollection was they essentially said "we are going to sell at an auction, but also might sell privately if someone steps up." Whole thing seemed to me like, I don't now, like possibly a set up for publicity?

Originally Nov 16th, then Dec 6th, now Feb 2018.

I heard that they aren't getting any bidders for pre-approval so they are hoping the hype ($36 million appraisal?!?) causes a private sale to occur. Probably impossible to confirm though.

I am surprised Ken has not clarified the status, after all that initial publicity.

That's the problem with having the "world's most valuable" sports collectible....no other collectors can afford it.

Sure it was a foregone conclusion from day 1 that this wouldn't end up in the hands of a private bidder. All of this has just been to generate publicity for the AH.

Yes, Captain Obvious officially on duty.
