Prague, Oct 29 (CTK) - The Millionaire Gallery, which sells memorabilia and original items from the areas of politics, history, showbusiness, sports and science, is opening its branch in Prague as the fifth one in the world, after Miami, Key West, London and Dubai, the branch's owner Tomas Novak has told CTK.
The visitors from among the fans of art, passionate sport fans, collectors and investors will be always offered 60 items on display. The currently displayed ones include a football strip of the famous player Pele and one of FC Barcelona, signed by all players, Napoleon Bonaparte's military document, a collection of photographs with the signatures of all six actors who ever played James Bond, and a collage with all grand slam titles of golf champion Tiger Woods.
Besides, customers can order other items and artifacts from the depository in Miami or have new memorabilia tailored on request.
"Still before the Prague branch's opening yesterday, several items have been reserved by customers already, and we have also received two orders for tailored memorabilia," Novak said.
The cheaper memorabilia's prices start at 55,000 crowns not including the tax.
The most expensive item on offer is the prototype of Steve Job's first keyboard, that costs about one million crowns.
"In addition, we have a shirt that belonged to Michael Jackson. We will put it up for auction next spring. The starting price will definitely cross one million crowns," Novak said.
All items on offer in any of the Millionaire Gallery branches is checked in the USA and receives a certificate of authenticity.
"The collector's items mean a more effective investment than, for example, state bonds or gold," said Lukas Kovanda, economist from the Roklen financial group.
