This online estate sale has me wishing for a good tailor and a new pair of tall leather boots.
Today you can bid for Cowboys gear, Air Jordans that the kids dig, and modern decor the Frisco home of former Dallas Cowboy Terrance Williams. The wide receiver, a Dallas native who attended W.T. White and Baylor University, put his Frisco home up for short sale after he was let go by the Cowboys and moved to St. Louis, where he plays for the XFL’s St. Louis Battlehawks.
Sale organizer Rusty by Design describes the sale, “Former Dallas Cowboys player’s home full of unique, modern and high-end pieces. Do not miss the great articles of clothing and his football cleat collection.”
The Highlight Reel
The more I look at this Rowing Blazers Handmade Italian Sports Jacket with custom Dallas Cowboys logo, the more I think how fabulous it would look taken in and worn with black leggings and riding boots. NYC-based Rowing Blazers is founded by a former member of the U.S. National Rowing Team. The size 42R navy knit cotton jersey blazer with cream twill tape trim retails for $395. Right now it’s sitting at $18 with 11 bids and no reserve.
Another Rowing Blazers coat, the Lady Margaret Boat Club Blazer, could be the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. The blazer’s colors are adopted from the stripes on a vintage Jaques croquet wicket according to RowingBlazers.com, where it retails for $995. This Lot #103 has a high bid of $8 with four bids and no reserve.
These Nike Air Jordan High Top Lunarlons have their rightful place in worldwide sneakerhead culture. Air Jordans, a Nike brand that was created in the mid-80s especially for Michael Jordan, achieved collector status as tv commercial starpower (“It’s gotta be the shoes”) got people buzzing and limited numbers for each design made them scarce. These are listed as “Lunarlon Water Proof” but more specifically they’re the Jordan Future Boot in size 11, which runs about $225. High bid for these is $37.50 right now.
You can literally shop the room here. Moving from left to right in the room, the Precedent charcoal gray club chairs are up for bid individually, now listed for $90 each.
The blue and white striped painted vases on the left bookshelf are up for bid separately for $5 and $6 right now.
The pair of fuschia velveteen Michael Weiss Vanguard modern benches are also up for bid separately with $32.50 and $37.50 high bids.
The off-white Michael Weiss Vanguard sectional sofa with ottoman, which I found to run $5k and up, has no bids, but there’s a reserve and minimum bid of $500.
The modern metal and glass sofa table behind the Michael Weiss has a high bid of $47.50 with 16 bids.
The lamp on the right-side end table is one of a pair of Interlude Home ombre glass lamps measuring 37 inches tall with linen drum lampshades, both with a high bid of $23 each.
And my favorite piece (and everyone else’s too), the wall plaque on the right bookcase is an S.A. Longshore lacquer on wood featuring a woman with a colorful Beta fish for hair. The Louisiana-based artist, who paints pop culture observations a la Andy Warhol and gets paid handsomely for it (she sold a painting on Instagram for $30k), owns the Longshore Studio Gallery located on Magazine Street in New Orleans. With 17 bids, the painting’s got a high bid of $220 right now.
Williams’ home on Lilac Lane in Frisco is a five-bedroom, 6,994-square-foot home listed for $1.9 million by Ronnie Reyes of Keller Williams Central and is now pending contract. Built by Ron David Custom Homes, the Mediterranean home is located in the private gated community of Hills of Kingswood. Williams purchased the home in May 2017 for an estimated $2.175 million.
How does an online estate sale work? All the lots went up Friday and are accepting bids until today, when the lots begin closing seven at a time at 7 p.m. If you’re the winning bidder, you’ll pay the final auction price plus an 18 percent buyer premium and pick up your prize on Wednesday, Dec. 18 between noon and 3 p.m. at the estate address.
