Secret Vault A Treasure Trove Of Gym Shorts

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A San Francisco businessman paid a pretty penny to own a secret vault, only to find out some of the contents were anything but pretty.

In 2002, Bill Sagan dropped $6 million to buy a vault owned by music promoter Bill Graham, who had collected all kinds of music memorabilia over the years.

Sagan found millions of music-related items in the vault such as vintage concert T-shirts, rare posters and thousands of audio recordings.

But the vault wasn’t a complete gold mine. Sagan also found lots of gym shorts emblazoned with Huey Lewis and the News, adding, “They would only fit 10-year-olds! I can’t imagine Huey Lewis wearing them.”

Sagan says another puzzling item he discovered was a Marilyn Manson straightjacket that may function as a thong too. He admits, “We can’t figure it out and no one will be the guinea pig.”

Despite some oddities, Sagan hopes to sell almost everything from the vault online – except the huge yellow lightning bolt that was used as a prop at Grateful Dead concerts.
