From a tie to a house, Maradona’s goods are auctioned in Argentina

From a tie to his parents’ house, to two BMW cars and a cigar cellar, about 90 assets of the legendary Argentine soccer player Diego Maradona will be auctioned on Sunday in an international online auction from Buenos Aires.

"At this time, we are 1,120 people registered and able to bid in the auction"the organizer of the auction, Adrián Mercado, told AFP this Saturday.

The 87 lots to be auctioned are offered with bases ranging from $ 50 to $ 900,000, he specified about the auction ordered by the Argentine justice in agreement with the heirs of the world champion in Mexico-1986.

"The children made a great selection of things, the most affective, the things of great memory, of great passion, the family kept them."Mercado explained.

The property that is auctioned is the one that Maradona gave to his parents at the beginning of the 1980s, when the ’10’ played in Boca Juniors, which is located in the residential neighborhood of Villa Devoto in Buenos Aires.

"The years passed, the clubs, the stories and the World Cups, but the house of (the street) Cantilo was always the place of Maradona", it reads on the portal promoting the auction.

Far from the precarious home of Villa Fiorito, the poor neighborhood on the outskirts of the capital where Maradona was born in 1960, the house that he gave to Doña Tota and Don Diego and that they lived in for more than 30 years, until his death, is not luxurious but it has 700 m2 covered and 500 m2 of park with a pool.

In the auction, two BMW cars, models 2017 and 2016, are also offered, whose bases are valued at 225,000 and 165,000 dollars, each.

There is also a 2015 Hyundai van at a base $ 38,000 and a two-room apartment in the seaside resort of Mar del Plata (400 km to the south), whose base is valued at $ 65,000.

Another offer is the treadmill that Diego used when he lived in Dubai, with a base of $ 3,500, a photo of Maradona with Fidel Castro, at 400 dollars and a cigar humidor at 300 dollars.

On the other hand, a handwritten letter signed by the Cuban leader, who had initially been informed that it would be present, does not include the auction lots.

Ties, caps, boots and sports clothing, six televisions, furniture, gym equipment, paintings and photos complete the offer of goods to be auctioned by order of Judge Luciana Tedesco.

The auction will begin on Sunday at 11:00 a.m. local time (2:00 p.m. GMT) and will last more than two hours, Mercado estimated.

The proceeds will be used to pay debts and expenses, without being distributed among the heirs, including their daughters and sons. After the auction, the courts will decide the fate of the lots that were left vacant.
