Jeffrey Epstein's Infamous Contact Book Auctioned for $200,000

Jeffrey Epstein's notorious 'little black book,' listing hundreds of contacts, is now up for auction, with bids reaching up to $200,000.

The book, initially bought for $425 on eBay, is being sold by Alexander Historical Auctions after other houses declined to handle it.

According to Daily Mail, the address book contains names, addresses, and phone numbers and has gained infamy for its associations. Purchased originally by an investigator, it is now being auctioned by Alexander Historical Auctions.

Infamous Book Contains Over 300 Names

The book includes 221 names not found in an earlier version published by Gawker in 2015. Forensic examination dates the book to 1997. Denise Ondayko discovered it on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue in the 90s.

Among the 349 names listed are prominent figures such as Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Carl Icahn, Morgan Fairchild, and Christina Greeven, wife of Chris Cuomo. Many names have denied any connections to Epstein.

The book, filled with the contacts of the deceased financier, was first auctioned on eBay in 2020. Investigative reporter Chris Helali, who bought the book, later decided to sell it due to its unsettling nature.

Initial Attempts to Sell the Book Rejected

Helali faced challenges in selling the book, with Sotheby's and Christie's rejecting it. Eventually, Alexander Historical Auctions accepted the task and listed the book for sale.

"I’m not superstitious, but it’s an odd feeling owning what is really an evil book," said Helali. "It’s unlike anything else in the world and linked to the most infamous case of the 21st century," he added.

The auction has garnered significant interest, with bidders eager to own a piece of controversial history. Bill Panagopulos of Alexander Historical Auctions confirmed that Epstein's estate was not involved in the sale.

Auction Details and Expected Outcomes

The proceeds from the sale will not go to anyone connected with Epstein or the individuals named in the book. Panagopulos assured, "As for the proceeds of the sale, I can say with a great deal of confidence that they will be going to a party that does not, nor ever did, have any connection with Mr. Epstein or anyone named in the book."

Interested parties can view the book on two days' notice. The auction will remain open until June 15, with the top two bidders given a final chance to increase their offers before the sale concludes.

The unique nature of the book makes its final sale price uncertain. Panagopulos estimates it could sell for upwards of $200,000 but acknowledges the unpredictability of such an item.
