Marvin Gaye’s Passport Included In Estate Sale Reported By ABC News

ABC News reported that on a recent episode of Antiques Roadshow a man that attended an estate sale in Detroit, bought an album by Mr. Gaye and discovered when he got it home tucked inside was Mr. Gaye’s passport. Marvin Gaye was shot and killed in 1984.

The gentleman took it to the Roadshow when it was in Detroit and when it was shown to Memorabilia pro Laura Woolley she advised the new owner to insure the expired passport for $20,000. A rare find.

This is not the first time an exceptional find has been the result of a purchase at an estate sale. Estate Sales News reported in 2013 the purchase by a couple a few years ago at a tag sale of a Chinese bowl for $3.00 that turned out to be over 1,000 years old and it sold at auction for $2.2 million.

You never know what you will find (many times by accident) at an estate sale.

Estate Sales News reminds our audience that if you are being affected by winter storm PAX monitor the sales in your area and remember that more than likely they will be extended or rescheduled and your safety is very important.
