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 wasnt 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 cant 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 cant 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.
