‘Simpsons’ Co-Creator’s Memorabilia, Art is Going to Auction
NEW YORK (AP) — A pinball machine from "The Simpsons" and fun pinup art are among the items coming to auction from the collection of the show's co-creator Sam Simon.
Sotheby's announced Thursday that it will be selling Simon's entire personal collection of memorabilia, fine art and other objects in a series of sales through the fall and next year. It's valued between $7.7 million and $11.5 million.
Simon died from colon cancer March 8 in California at 59.
The 260 lots will be spread across 11 "various-owner" auctions.
In addition, Sotheby's will offer Simon's memorabilia in a dedicated sale Oct. 22. Those items include a circa 1990 "The Simpsons" pinball machine with a presale estimate of $1,000 to $2,000.
