The Associated Press reports that the library of master videotapes from the old PTL Club TV show days featuring Jim and Tammy Bakker are up for auction. During Bakker’s fall from grace, and the subsequent court trial, the 15,069 hourlong tapes went to a Charlotte church, then a cable content provider, said Ben Dyer, president of Gospel Properties. The cable provider defaulted on a loan from Dyer’s company and he got the tapes, which he plans to auction in San Francisco on March 27. A spokeswoman for Jim Bakker, who now lives in Branson, Mo., said the televangelist has been told the tapes have been appraised at around $8 million. He considers them part of his legacy. So if you’re interested in opening a Jim Bakker museum, here’s your chance.
