Man sells autograph collection for ailing daughter

Associated Press
In this Friday, Oct. 19, 2012 photo, memorabilia collector Ken Kallin displays one of his antique books that will be sold at auction in Oakland Park, Fla.  Three decades ago, Kallin began amassing 120,000 pieces in a memorabilia collection that includes photographs signed by Muhammad Ali and Neil Armstrong along with rare books and trading cards. By the end of Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 he's hoping to have gotten rid of nearly all of it _ at an auction to benefit his daughter, who suffers from a rare autoimmune disease that makes her bones dangerously brittle and causes her body's defenses to attack her own blood vessels.

Ken Kallin started his collection three decades ago and has since amassed 120,000 pieces to include photographs, books and trading cards — all autographed. He's hoping to get rid of it all at an auction Oct. 27 near Fort Lauderdale. The money will help pay for his daughter's treatments for a rare autoimmune disease.
