Online collectibles sale offers a tonne of fun for silver surfers

We all know that in tough economic times, the value of precious metals and antiques crafted from them rises in value.

The Pride, Prudence and Pleasure to Boot online auction on February 12 should satisfy even the most voracious appetite for investors of this genre as it features more than one tonne of sterling silver collectibles.

The very first lot in the sale is a 1,275g .925 silver NFL limited edition football. It's 29cm long by 19cm high and has a top end estimate of $10,000.

There are 68 lots in the first session, which begins at 13:00ET. A second session is slated for a few hours later in the day.

Many of the items are estimated to be valued at $10,000 or more, but in true auction spirit, minimum bids often start at $100, which means canny investors could pick up a bargain or two.
