Roy Rogers auction includes Trigger horse. Trigger horse is a really big piece of Roy Rogers memorabilia, which is expected to bring in between $100,000 and $200,000 at the auction. We know what you are thinking - Trigger horse was...well...Roy Rogers's horse. What does that mean? Well, it means that in 1965 the cowboy's horse was stuffed following his death.
Christies is holding an auction later this week of Roy Rogers memorabilia and for many it is going to be a great opportunity to rack up on some unique items. Don't expect these items to come cheap, though. The auction is going to hold many different and unique items that will be quite expensive.
So where is all this stuff coming from? The family of the late cowboy decided to close down his museum in Branson and auction off his goods. There's also a Bonneville convertible that is expected to bring in another $100,000 to $150,000.
The bidders at the auction are those who love all things cowboy or who grew up watching Roy Rogers. Many note that the cowboy films of his era had high morals - there wasn't any unnecessary violence and it usually occurred where Rogers would actually just shoot the gun out of the bad guys' hands - and didn't aim to kill.
So whether someone is going to go to the auction to purchase Trigger horse, a Bonneville, or some furniture or clothing, Christie's will be rife with Roy Rogers auction fans from July 14-15, 2010.
