KFC Auctions Off Colonel Sanders’s Personal Effects

Perhaps spurred on by the news that one of the KFC founder's suits went for a princely $20,000 back in June, the fast-food chain yesterday opened bidding on a few more of Colonel Sanders's personal effects. The charity auction's lineup consists mostly of plaques announcing what a great guy the Colonel was (read all about that in former Grub editor Josh Ozersky's biography of the guy.) "There's just no predicting what some of these items will bring," one historian marvels. So far, though, no one's biting, so your chances of snagging Colonel Sanders's very own Boy Scouts of America plaque for only 100 bucks are pretty good. [Salt Lake Tribune]
