The bidding for the largest ever sale of Titanic artifacts closed on Monday and the winner is set to be announced at a press conference on April 11. The auction contains more than 5,500 items recovered between 1987 and 2004 from the final resting place of the Titanic, over 12,000 feet below the Atlantic Ocean.
