The army boots Alan Alda offered as part of the second annual Stand Up for Heroes: A Benefit for the Bob Woodruff Foundation, presented by the New York Comedy Festival and the Bob Woodruff Foundation, failed to sell when the auction closed this afternoon (at 3PM EST). Only one bidder showed interest and the boots, given a fair market value of $25,000, failed to hit an undisclosed reserve. Alda’s signed copy of “Inga” sold for $600 with 13 bids, a copy of The Last Days of M*A*S*H went for $275 with one bid, and a signed copy of M*A*S*H’s Greatest Hits sold for $425 with eight bids.
Will the boots be relisted with a lower reserve? We shall see.
