Amelia Earhart Goggles Sold At Auction

KSCB News - October 12, 2009 12:00 am

(AP) – A pair of Amelia Earhart’s goggles have

fetched $141,600 at an auction of entertainment memorabilia.

The Kansas-born aviatrix wore the goggles on her historic 1932

solo trans-Atlantic flight.

They were the top money-getter among dozens of items sold at an

auction in Los Angeles by Profiles in History. The auction house

says it sold about $5 million in memorabilia Thursday and Friday.

An illuminating glove worn by Michael Jackson during the 1984

Victory Tour brought in $70,800, while a bullwhip swung by Harrison

Ford in “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” went for $56,050.
