Lots of stuff there. I got good advice in my early days of collecting from Jack. Even have a bunch of his books.

Jack called me about a month ago, told me he was selling all of his collection off... Spoke for about 2 hours. He is doing well and is working on another book..

One question, he was banned from here for repeatedly selling PUT together uniforms, will you bid with confidence on his Groupings and uniforms all things considered?

I ask because I would like to potentially bid on some items. I only live about 20-30 minutes from the location that you can view them. I plan on making an appointment to go view them, if anybody would like any better pictures I would be happy to do that for you.

This is what I came back to post.  Curious as to what others think as well.

There has been some very generous gentleman on this forum, that have helped me out a lot. Any way I can give back to the community, I am more than happy to help out, I can't provide a lot of knowledge so this is a way for me to give back.

Went through the first 8 pages, it's 85% uniforms. Now with his track record on past uniforms. It's going to be hard to pull the trigger. And there are some nice named ones.

I finally was able to look through the whole auction, I wonder where the good stuff is? I have been to Jack's house multiple times and this doesn't even scratch the surface of his collection. Not saying there are not some nice items in this auction, but he has a lot more historically significant Groupings and uniforms in his collection.

I don't think we have to look very hard to learn something here. One your integrity is put into question, it will haunt you. Even if everything in this sale is 100% original as the vet owned it, it will always have stigma. As has often been said, sum of the parts.

I don't know the players involved nor their history with this forum, so as a neutral party with fresh eyes scanning this auction I noticed many famous figures represented but most without any provenance and mostly unnamed items.

 

Perhaps you must attend the auction to see the name tags, engravings and provenance?

  • Soulis Auctions in Kansas City. Interestingly, they have a video tour of the collection with Jack and he is carefully pointing out several items that were added to uniforms etc... Perhaps he learned a small lesson?   Scott

And this is the rub, he was banned here, he has been caught embellishing groupings and attacked those who called him out. This same thing happened in his T.R. days and followed him into his U.S. interest. Personally, there is no desire on my part to own anything he has ever had. This is sad because, there are some nice and well provenanced items in his collection. However, there is no way to determine which one is legit and which one is embellished thus, all of it becomes questionable.

Its such a shame as his collection is great. There has got to be some that are legit just going by the law of averages. I mean how much could he embellish/hump up? Did he forge documents?

 

I'm surprised some of the items are just sitting around and not stored in plastic etc
