Large Collection Of KU Memorabilia To Be Auctioned

KSAL StaffAugust 8, 2013

A collection of more than 1,000 pieces of University of Kansas memorabilia that has been housed at the university’s Student Union will soon be up for auction.

The collection’s owner, Bud Jennings, says he started gathering the items in 1939. He let it go on display at the union in hopes a collector would buy it all.

But no one came forward with the $130,000 price tag. He gave the university three years to raise the money but marketing director Mike Reid said those efforts failed.

Jennings will sell some pieces at an auction and others on eBay. He says the proceeds will go toward his retirement.

Jennings says he’s not sure when the auction will occur.
