A Utah collector says some items sold for 10 times the asking price.
Rare books and documents collector Ken Sanders shares the auction catalogs of an incredible collection, including rare pieces from early LDS Church history.
Explorer Floyd Risvold spent decades collecting. He recently died at age 97. His 1,300-item collection, valued at $5 million, sold at the New York City auction.
Sanders, who owns Ken Sanders Rare Books in downtown Salt Lake City, said of the collection, "It's got everything from George Washington to everything in the past two centuries of American history in the original source documents. That's what makes it so exciting."
