The art and artifacts collection of Sam Simon,"The Simpsons" co-creator who died this year, will be auctioned by Sotheby's this fall. As you might expect, it includes some cool vintage Simpsons memorabilia.
Simon helped create "The Simpsons" in 1986. He left the show after its fourth season, but kept the title of executive producer. Before his death from colorectal cancer in March at age 59, he left his $100 million fortune to charity.
Sotheby's is selling Simon's collection of fine arts and memorabilia to benefit the Sam Simon Charitable Giving Foundation. The collection includes souvenirs from 19th century boxing matches and pin-up art, according to the Los Angeles Times.
But we know you're here for the Simpsons-themed goods. Simon's custom Simpsons jacket will be on sale, along with a funky pinball machine. The New York Times reports the game says “Hey, man, I’m an underachiever, too,” in Bart Simpson's voice.
The collection reportedly includes a Simpson's yarmulke, and an Itchy & Scratchy-themed bag.
Sotheby's will offer Simon's "Simpsons" memorabilia at a dedicated sale in New York on Oct. 22. Other items in his collection will be auctioned as part of 11 other sales this fall.
