Fun While It Lasted
My Rise and Fall in the Land of Fame and FortuneBook - 2003
Bruce McNall became obsessed with coin collecting at the age of ten. At sixteen, his collection was worth £60,000. During college, he travelled the world buying coins stolen from ancient sites and tombs. His first major sale was to Sy Weintraub, the head of Panavision, who bought £500,000 worth of coins in one sitting. Soon, McNall branched out into horse racing, moving making (The Fabulous Baker Boys), and owning the L.A. Kings hockey team. But in 1990, his house of cards collapsed, and McNall was sent to prison for defrauding investors. Now here is his whirlwind life story.
