Living in the age of information has enabled us to immortalize our favorite public figures whether they be entertainers, political figures, or martyrs. With the use of the internet, we have the ability to curate online shrines for our idols in the form of YouTube videos and social media posts and we can even collect our favorite memorabilia and items our heroes actually utilized in their day to day lives with a single online search. Luckily, for those interested in preserving the memories of some of our deceased and still existing living legends, there is an opportunity to purchase a small piece of their lives in an upcoming event produced by acclaimed auctioneer house, Julien's Auctions.
