A whole lot of Betty White is going on sale this weekend. More than 1,500 lots of the late actor’s’ property — representing her life and her prolific career — will be auctioned off over three days, starting today (Friday). White’s Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award is among the highlights, along with scripts from notable TV episodes including Part 1 of The Golden Girls finale. That one is signed by White and her co-stars Bea Arthur, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty.
… There’s also a handwritten note from Mary Tyler Moore and NBC executive Grant Tinker, a framed cast photo from The Mary Tyler Moore Show with Betty engraved on it, White’s 2015 People‘s Choice Award for favorite icon, her original director’s chair from the set of The Golden Girls and a number of gowns she wore on award-show red carpets.
… Buyers can also pick up art, furniture, fine jewelry and more from her homes in Brentwood and Carmel, California.
… Some of White’s most iconic items won’t be available for purchase, as they were recently donated to the National Comedy Center and have been installed at its museum in Jamestown, New York. Among the museum’s goodies: Five Emmy statuettes marking White’s wins for Life With Elizabeth in 1952, The Mary Tyler Moore Show in 1975 and 1976, The Golden Girls in 1986, and guest host of Saturday Night Live in 2010. The blue-and-white sweater White wore in her 2010 Snickers Super Bowl ad is there as well, along with a tracksuit from Hot in Cleveland and sweater from The Golden Girls.
… White died in December 2021 at age 99.
