Remember those old Full Tilt Poker hockey-style jerseys and baseball hats that you could trade rewards points in for prior to Black Friday? Well, Full Tilt never quite got rid of all this stuff before Ray Bitar, Chris Ferguson and Howard Lederer drove the company into the ground. And now, there’s going to be a massive $3,500,000 auction to sell everything off from the old Full Tilt days.
J. Sugarman Auction Corp is the one running the auction, which is set to take place on August 2nd at 11:00am PST. There’s also a live venue in San Dimas, California that you can visit to bid on items in person. And if you don’t make the live or online auction right at 11, don’t worry because J. Sugarman reps state that these events are normally 2-3 hours long.
Of course, that’s if no crazed Full Tilt fanboy comes in and buys everything at once. We don’t foresee this happening, but J. Sugarman did mention that the merchandise will be auctioned off by demand. So if you’re hunting for a Full Tilt golf bag, don’t be surprised if they’re all snatched up.
Assuming you check out the link above, you’ll notice that there’s an abundance of clothing items like t-shirts, polo’s, jerseys, coats and more. In all, there are over 200,000 items up for sale in 28 different categories. Some of the non-clothing items that you can bid for include chip sets, footballs, mouse pads, pens, poker books and umbrellas. Given the massive variety here, we’re surprised that Lederer and Ferguson never started giving out Full Tilt toilet paper, cooking spray and contact solution.
Anyways, it’ll be interested to see how the auction goes and how much of this stuff actually goes.
