When Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz’ daughter, Lucie Arnaz decided it was time to part with some of her parents’ personal items and memorabilia, she turned to her good friend and eBay seller, Maida Webster (eBay User ID connectibles) for advice. It took a little coaxing, but eventually Maida convinced Lucie that eBay was the best venue for offering her family treasures for bid and there was no better seller than herself! And no better year to sell the collection than 2011, which is both the 60th anniversary of the ground-breaking, I Love Lucy show and the 100 anniversary of Lucille Ball’s birth.
The first lot of what is promised to be several hundred Lucy and Desi items that Connectibles will offer in the coming weeks and months is now available for bid. In this first lot, there are signed letters, photos, personal clothing and accessories and household items as well.
But so far the most popular item of the first lot has to be the LUCILLE BALL personalized own Tall Director’s Chair. In less than a day, four bidders have battled up the price to $535 (and counting!)
