Tarpinian also heard Robinson was offered $100,000 for the lot before the auction started.
The second of 12 lots is scheduled to be auctioned on March 9.
Update 03/01/2012: Participants in the auction dispute the figure reported here, saying it was actually much higher. Well, if there had to be a mistake I’m glad the correction means Frank Robinson realized even more from the first lot auctioned from his collection. I will be watching for the results to be posted as promised by the official web page.
