In an online auction that starts on August 26th and ends on September 6th, the Bucks County, PA District Attorney’s Office is selling 3 dozen forfeited surplus items, including a Michael Jordan #23 Bullets jersey, an Allen Iverson #3 Philadelphia 76ers jersey, a Larry Bird #33 Boston Celtics jersey, a Julius Erving #6 Philadelphia 76ers jersey, a Brian Urlacher #56 Chicago Bears jersey, and various other seized sports apparel and memorabilia. The D.A.’s office is also auctioning off seized comic books, televisions, tools, musical instruments, and electronics.
The Bucks County, PA District Attorney’s Office is using online auction site, Municibid.com, to sell the items. Municibid was established in 2006 and has grown steadily since, with over 1,000 government agencies nationwide auctioning surplus through the easy-to-use online system. Among the hundreds of governments using Municibid in the greater Philadelphia region are the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office, the City of Philadelphia and Delaware County. Auctions on Municibid result in competitive bidding and great deals on government surplus and forfeited items.
Municibid Founder and CEO, Greg Berry said, “Taxpayer demand and tightened budgets require government agencies to look for new ways of increasing non-tax revenue. Municibid is an easy way to achieve this and at no cost to the agency.” Berry added, “Auction items will reach a much broader, national audience of competing bidders, leading to better net results for the agency and great deals for bidders.”
