\" I received a call on Sunday July 20th from an old collector that I
thought was dead , so does anyone else that knew him, and he told me to
get in my car and drive if I wanted to sell his collection. I said when
and he sad \"Now if you want to do it\". I packed a small bag and started
driving . It was a long drive and I packed every cane by myself from his
mansions( yes plural) basement and now opportunity knocks for you the
collector. This will be a chance of a lifetime. Most of you enjoy buying
