Betty White’s estate is putting more than 1,500 items from “The Golden Girls” icon’s life and career up for auction this fall.
Julien’s Auctions is hosting a three-day event starting Sept. 23 in Beverly Hills (as well as online), where fans can bid on items, according to People.
White passed away Dec. 31, 2021, just a few weeks shy of her 100th birthday.
Goods from the “Mary Tyler Moore Show” star’s life include awards, scripts, wardrobe and memorabilia from her TV shows and films.
Furnishings, artwork, jewelry and household and personal items from her homes in Brentwood and Carmel, Calif., will also be up for auction.

“Betty passed in her sleep peacefully without pain. To me, this is the most important thing and brings me comfort as her dear friend. Anything else is private to Betty,” White’s longtime agent and friend Jeff Witjas said at the time of her passing.
White purchased the home in 1968 with her late husband Allen Ludden. Her wedding ring is one of the tokens being sold at the auction. The starting estimate ranges from $600 to $800.
