WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Jan. 20 (UPI) -- Memorabilia from the 1970s New York disco Studio 54 were sold at high prices Saturday at an auction in West Palm Beach, attendees said.

The Miami Herald said thousands of items were auctioned off from the estate of former Studio 54 co-owner Steve Rubell during the event, which was held at Baba's auction house.

Most of the 400 items were sold at prices higher than the auction house suggested, with a Polaroid of Rubell and Grace Jones going for $10,000. An invitation to a party at the club sold for $1,500.

The club's guestbook sold for $6,000.

The Herald said many prices were driven upward by photograph collectors.
