Lot 3... this is a very early membership, dating back to 2001 (yes madam, that's AD, not BC). Would someone like to open the bidding? We begin with a starting price of $25...

I suspect all these numbers will soon go out of my price range, but may as well give it a try...

I'm bidding $30

Herod the Great? Nero? Pah!

#37 is Casey Stengel's number, retired after he led the New York Yankees to 10 American League pennants and 7 World Series wins in 12 years. Stengel was one of baseball's greatest-ever managers.

#37 is the symphony Mozart mostly didn't write. Only the introduction is his; the rest was written by Michael Haydn.

#37 is the sonnet in Sidney's "Astrophil and Stella" with the marvelous puns on Penelope Rich's name.

Do I hear $109 for this prime number?
