|Lot # 477581 - Large Collection of Imprints of John Stossel's Mustache|
This collection is of major significance within the John Stossel community. It was recently acquired during an estate auction and the current owner does not wish to be responsible for the upkeep on the collection. Includes more than a dozen half-eaten glazed donuts with Stossel's mustache imprint in the glaze, the remnants of a cake thrown at Stossel's face during a college lecture ( very clear imprint of his mustache and upper lip), and three towels that Stossel used to wipe body soil and sweat from his face (fairly clear, but a full face imprint!). The centerpiece of the collection is a full frontal body imprint of Stossel in exquisite detail. The imprint was captured in flour, excavated from a pile at a bakery Stossel visited during a story he was doing on poor hand washing habits, and encased in a hermetically sealed chamber identical to the one that houses the US Constitution.
