    Monthly sale to include bowling and other sports memorabilia

    IBMHOFPhotoautographedByDickWeberJoeNorris.jpg The International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame (IBMHOF) announced the launch of its new online Bowling Museum Store where it will hold monthly auctions of bowling and other sports memorabilia.

    Pictured here is a photo autographed by bowling legends Dick Weber and Joe Norris.

    Proceeds from sales will benefit IBMHOF in its mission to preserve the history of bowling. The IBMHF plans to rotate items up for sale on a monthly basis, giving shoppers a new set of items on which to bid.

    "It is only through the generous support of our patrons that the International Bowling Museum and Hall of Fame is able to offer these items for sale," said Bob Gudorf, IBMHF president.

    "We are very grateful for their willingness to donate their collectables to benefit the Museum. It just shows what a great bowling family we all belong to."

    The auction will take place in The Bowling Museum Store on eBay, where bidders will find descriptions of each item along with information on how to participate in the auction.
