WOOD RIVER, Ill. (AP) — The former riverboat that once served as the Casino Queen along East St. Louis' riverfront is under new ownership.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that federal marshals on Friday auctioned off the vessel called White Star One for $600,000.

There were 14 bids during the sale that lasted just five minutes and opened with a $200,000 bid.

Gerald Smallwood was one of the three bidders and represented a Florida man who had the winning offer. It's not immediately clear what that buyer — a former shipyard owner who owns riverfront properties in Kentucky — plans to do with the vessel.

The White Star has languished since the Casino Queen operation moved inland a few years ago.

Stan Musial memorabilia online auction

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Fans of St. Louis Cardinals great Stan Musial will get a chance to own a piece of his personal collection - items ranging from game-worn jerseys to championship rings to harmonicas - through an online auction that's now underway.

Musial died in January at age 92, a year after his wife died. The family kept many mementos and donated many others.

Musial's grandson, Brian Musial Schwarze, says Stan the Man's modest home in Ladue, Mo., was filled with items even relatives didn't know existed.

With so much stuff, the family decided to auction some of it off.

The auction of 400 lots of items began Thursday. Heritage Auctions of Dallas is hosting the online auction. Bidding closes Nov. 7 through Nov. 9, depending on the lot.

PIERCE, Neb. (AP) — Car buffs from across the world have converged on a small northeast Nebraska town for the first day of a vintage Chevrolet auction, which includes about 50 with fewer than 20 miles on their odometers.

Bidding for the highest-profile vehicles was expected to begin around 11:30 a.m. Saturday in a field just west of Pierce. An estimated 10,000 people were expected to attend the weekend event.

The collection belonged to Ray Lambrecht and his wife, who ran the Lambrecht Chevrolet dealership from 1946 until their retirement in 1996.

Lambrecht rarely sold cars or pickups that were more than a year old.

While most dealers lowered prices to move inventory, Lambrecht assumed the older cars would appreciate over time, so he stashed them in warehouses, at his farm and other spots

NEW YORK (AP) - Singer Andy Williams' eclectic art collection has brought $46 million at a New York City auction.

The works sold on Wednesday, the first of a two-day sale at Christie's.

The late singer's taste ranged from contemporary, impressionist and modern to Latin American and 20th century decorative art and design.

 He collected over a 60-year period. The works were displayed at his California and Missouri homes, as well as his Moon River Theater in Branson, Mo.

Auction highlights included Willem de Koonings' "Untitled XVII," which fetched $9.7 million and Jean-Michel Basquiat's "Furious Man, which realized $5.7 million.

Williams died last year at age 84.

The baritone was known for his wholesome, middle-America appeal and easy-listening hits including the theme to the Oscar-winning tearjerker "Love Story."

The building that used to house federal records is on the auction block.

The feds are selling the 440,000 square foot former federal records center at 111 W. Winnebago Street in St. Louis.

Bids are competitive and the General Services Administrator says interested bidders will have to provide a $45,000 registration deposit to register for the sale and to bid on the property, which will be applied to the sale price. Most of the square footage is warehouse space, with some office space. Registered guests can tour the building 10 a.m., Monday, May 20.

Since 1961, the facility served as a records storage facility for the National Archives and Records Administration most recently. The records center relocated to a new facility at 1 Archives Drive, St. Louis, in 2011.

The public can find more information about this auction by contacting Laura McGinnis at (817) 307-1943 or laura.mcginnis@gsa.gov and by visiting RealEstateSales.gov orPropertyDisposal.gsa.gov.
