Chiefs collectible auction to benefit Union Station

If you are a collector of Kansas City Chiefs memories and memorabilia, don’t miss this opportunity to own unique pieces of Super Bowl championship history. Union Station is unlocking a limited number of championship parade day prized collectibles for a silent auction that is now under way.

Still a little dusty, the parade-displayed banners anchor each collectible package. Every banner was on full display during the Downtown parade on Feb. 5, flanking each side of the Champions Stage on the south side of Union Station.

Click here to learn more about the silent auction collectible packages. Each one features a championship banner, along with a framed “Sea of Red” print or with a double-print, hand-numbered version of “Sea of Red” and “Sea of Blue” images.
