Roy Rogers @ Christie’s; or, Happy Sales to You

The Roy Rogers Museum in Branson, MO, closed = bummer.

An exceptional collection of western kitsch and singing cowboy duds for previewing at Christie’s auction house = lifts the spirits a little

Trigger = $266,000

Bullet, Roy Roger’s dog = $35,000

Hand-drawn music and lyrics to “Happy Trails” = $27,500

Most of the items bought by collectors who will keep the items available to museums = awesome

The auction audience and bidders bursting into a spontaneous rendition of “Happy Trails” at the end of the auction, July 15, 2010 = priceless!

…damn, I got tearspots on my new Roy Rogers boots…
