Colonel Sanders Memorabilia Gets Auctioned Off By KFC For Charity (PHOTOS)

PHOTOS: Look At This Really Old Colonel Sanders Memorabilia

Months after a white suit belonging to KFC founder Colonel Sanders sold at auction for a whopping $21,510, KFC is cashing in on the interest with a larger memorabilia auction. Proceeds will benefit Feeding America, a hunger relief organization, and the World Food Programme.

So what's on the auction block? Seventeen items that previously sat collecting dust in a secure underground storage facility in Louisville, Ken. They include some quirky items, like a Colonel Sanders portrait made of leather and a weathervane in his likeness, as well as the Colonel's invitation to the White House from President Jimmy Carter and a key to the city of St. Louis.

At time of publication, there were still serious deals to be had. That leather portrait? The highest bid was only $50. The weathervane, however, was already at $500.

Below, take a look at some of the most interesting items. Head over to Heritage Auctions for the full list.
