C.B. & Potts is auctioning off the iconic 15-foot shark that used to hang from the ceiling of its former Campus West location. The proceeds will benefit the Fermentation Science and Technology Program at Colorado State University.

According to a story from CSU:

Potts officials announced the opportunity to “Hook the Shark” at the April 9 grand opening of their new Foothills Mall restaurant and taproom. It will go to the highest bidder in an online auction that continues through April 30.

About the Shark

The Potts Shark weighs about 250 pounds, is approximately 5 feet wide and is just under 7 feet tall from the top of its dorsal fin to the bottom of its underside fin. In addition to the CSU football jersey, it comes with two winch, cable and pulley systems that allow it to be easily raised and lowered after installation. Potts purchased the movie prop for $5,000 in the early 1990s.

Bidding on the Shark

Bids for the shark will start at $1,000, and the winning bidder may be eligible for a tax deduction, if the bid is more than the fair market value of $5,000. The winning bidder is responsible for all removal, shipping and transportation costs. For more information or to place a bid, visit CSU2016.gesture.com.
