Bay of Pigs/Rip Robertson memorabilia


Recommended Posts

Bidding is heating up on eBay for a collection of documents and photographs featuring none other than our favorite spook Rip Robertson.

It is up to around a $1,000 at the moment but the reserve has yet to be met. I guess one would need to be cashed up as bidders might well be competing with the accounting department at Langley?

FWIW.

Only one guy has bid--31 times! Except for the CIA guy that just outbid him.

James, did you see his bidding history? He has won bids on some great photos of the Cuban revolution. You can view those photos here:

Mike,

I do know who that gentleman is. He is a friendly with one of the more spectacular photographic collections going around.

The seller has lower her bid requirement for these historical items.

The current bid is $3,999.99, with the reserve still not met. Barb,

the seller, has been kind enough to sent me some of the individual

images from this collection. These images are very important from

the investigatived stand point but also from the historical angle. I

hope that someone besides our other "friends" will win this auction.

It would make a great investment for those researchers who are

young enough to sell off the collection years down the line or for

us older researchers ( John S. included) as a tax right off or better

yet pass the collection to a family member.

P.S. Barb's computer crashed for several days. Could be our

"friends"?
