Scott Rothstein lived the high life for awhile, but now everything he has that's worth anything--including some sports collectibles--is being sold by government order.
The contents of the former law offices of a Florida man who ran a $1 billion Ponzi scheme are about to be sold.
Scott Rothstein is now in custody on a variety of federal charges.
Fisher Auction Co., Inc. has been engaged by the U.S. Bankruptcy Trustee to conduct an auction, set for this weekend. Among the hundreds of items scheduled to be sold are several signed and unsigned pieces of sports memorabilia.
Everything from full office suites to computers, telephones, conference room furniture, oriental carpets from all locations will be available in addition to the contents of Scott Rothstein’s personal suite of offices.
“We expect this to be a very well attended auction and are aware there is a lot of public curiosity," said Fisher Auction Company president Lamar Fisher.
Rothstein was an obvious avid memorabilia collector and among the items to be sold are several signed items from Shaquille O'Neal, Dwyane Wade, Dan Marino and a number of other Dolphins' players. Signed, framed jerseys and commemorative items, mostly from Florida teams are included. Here's a look at some of the items in the sale.
The auction takes place this Saturday at AMC Liquidators Showroom, 3705 West Commercial Blvd., Tamarac, Florida. Registration will begin at 8 am with auction to commence at 10 am. Prospective bidders must have a $500 refundable cash deposit in order to be a qualified bidder. All purchases on auction day are payable in cash only. No checks or credit cards will be accepted.
