He lived in high spirits. Diego Maradona has never made a secret of his extravagant lifestyle. His life was marked by drug and alcohol addiction. Last year, his body stopped doing it and the Argentine soccer idol died of a heart attack on November 25, 2020. Now his debts are to be paid in an auction. Among other things, you can bid for his parents’ house in Buenos Aires as well as two BMWs. Of course, a photo with Fidel Castro should not be missing.
This Sunday, 87 Maradona memorabilia will be auctioned in Argentina. According to the auction manager Adrian Mercado, the starting prices are 50 to 900,000 dollars (45 to 800,000 euros). Maradona’s heirs approved the auction. According to Mercado, the five children recognized by Maradona had put together a “great selection”.
87 things that are riddled with memories and feelings come under the hammer. A BMW, a Hyundai pickup and a two-room apartment in the holiday resort of Mar del Plata 400 kilometers south of Buenos Aires are among Maradona’s most valuable memorabilia.
