THIS AUCTION IS LIKE A ROY ROGERS AND DALE EVANS ESTATE SALE
Roy Rogers has always been our cowboy hero and we just HAD to see what Christie’s is auctioning off from the Roy Rogers Museum. We pulled photos of our favorite items. Roy and Dale’s parade quality wardrobes were mostly made by Nudie the Rodeo Tailor and Roy’s outfits are expected to bring in $5000 to $7000 while Dale’s might be more affordable in the thousand dollar range. Too bad she was so tiny. We love the framed children’s cowboy and cowgirl ensembles ($1500 to $2000) and the Rogers family dishes (a full set of Wallace China in the Westward Ho pattern $3000 to $5000) Incidentally, Roy’s fringed gabardine cowboy suits are in remarkable condition and his son explained that his dad grew up poor and always took meticulous care of his fancy clothes.
