I Love Lucy Day Auction
Bidding starts on Sunday, October 15th at 12 PM ET and ends on Saturday, October 28th at 5 PM ET
I Love Lucy premiered on the CBS television network on October 15, 1951, and quickly became a cultural phenomenon – and one of the most popular sitcoms of all time. The series revolutionized television with its groundbreaking production techniques and influenced TV comedy for generations.
In celebration of this moment in entertainment history, the Lucy Desi Museum Official Shop has combed through the warehouse in Lucy’s hometown of Jamestown, NY, for a selection of 40 treasured gifts and collectibles. Most of the items in the auction have not been in production or available in retail stores for several years.
From limited edition dolls and figurines to memorable ornaments and accessories – there are extraordinary items available for Lucille Ball fans and collectors.
All proceeds from the I Love Lucy Day Treasures & Collectibles Auction support the non-profit mission of the Lucy Desi Museum in Jamestown, NY. Bidding begins at 12 PM EST on Sunday, October 15, 2023, and ends at 5 PM EST on Saturday, October 28, 2023.
