Ironically, Kathy actually came to the Roadshow that day to have her desk valued (around $2,500), and it was in the course of that appraisal that they found the souvenir program inside — which Simeon Lipman appraised for between $8,000 and $12,000. Watch the full appraisal of this item in our Roadshow Archive.
