Those of you that follow me have heard a lot of this lately but my grandpa has been diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer. Though the diagnosis is terminal my grandpa may still be around for a few months and during this time we would like to help him have the highest quality of life possible which brings me to this picture.
My grandpa is huge into toy trains and met Ward Kimball during the convention in 91. Ward got bored partway through the meeting and did this sketch on the plate he had, afterwards he signed it and gave it to grandpa who has held onto it to this day. Unfortunately, due to the circumstances, we are looking to sell it.
We aren’t familiar with how much something like this may be worth or how to go about selling it. If you have any interest in buying the plate or any information on how to go about selling it (where/worth?) it would be GREATLY appreciated. If nothing else a signal boost would be great help too. Our family doesn’t have money and anything we can make at this point is going to go towards keeping my grandpa comfortable and happy as much as we can.
