    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (8)

      • One of the first movies to widely market movie merchandise, Star Wars has sold over $8 billion dollars of consumer products in stores worldwide.

      • A mint 1909 Honus Wagner baseball card is worth over one million dollars. Legend has it so few were made because he refused to have his name associated with the distributor, a tobacco company.

      • The very first guitar Elvis Presley owned at the afe of eleven was purchased at a hardware store in Tupelo, Mississippi for $7.75. Today, the guitar is valued at around 1 million dollars.

      • The most sought after clubs are the early 1400's 'long-nose' woods. Much like a modern-day ice hockey stick, they were commonly used for over 400 years. Today they are valued at anywhere between $3,650 and $100,000.

      • The first motorized armored fighting vehicles were tractors with metal plates attached to provide protection to the driver and passengers.

      • Gary Davis has broken his back and shattered his ankle while performing stunts for TV and movies, but has never been injured while riding a motorcycle.

      • Along with guitars and swords, Steven Seagal also collects Tibetan Buddhas.

      • B-29 Superfortress is the biggest and most fuel consuming plane in Kermit Weeks collection. It consumes roughly 350 gallons per hour.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Narrator: A private collection of cars with more muscle than wrestle Bill Goldberg. Hundreds of motorcycles owned by a Hollywood stuntman, the 10,000 clubs of Arnold Palmer and Steven Segal's guitar collection, lifetimes and fortunes are spent in pursuit of these collectibles. From Star Wars to the King of Rock & Roll, the private collection of classic airplanes that still fly, tanks for a backyard battlefield, and the sports memorabilia of director Penny Marshall. Private Collections: next on Modern Marvels.
