“MR. OCTOBER” TO VISIT INDIANA FOR THE AUCTION OF HIS PERSONAL SHELBY MUSTANG Auburn, Ind. (March 17, 2011) – Major League Baseball Hall of Famer and noted car collector, Reggie Jackson, will be making his way to Auburn, Indiana this spring to watch his prized 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350 (chassis no. SFM5S129) go under the hammer at the Auctions America by RM inaugural Auburn Spring Collector Car Auction, May 12 – 15, 2011 at the 235-acre Auburn Auction Park.
