    This is great, but why in the world not make it an online auction?

    I would pay some good money for this stuff, but I don’t live anywhere near Kentucky. Dang….

    Glad to see this stuff for sale, but in my view, they are going about ALL WRONG….Only a select few will be able to get in on the action…Why not use a on line site like E Bay, then run some adds for ALL the UK fans to see..then set a amount of time say 5 days for Bids. This way many more people can bid, UK fans all across the USA……Not sure what the Locker section would be worth, but I’d be will bid pretty high…..
