NEW YORK -- All sorts of memorabilia from the singing cowboy hits the auction block this week.

Christie's in Manhattan is auctioning the items including Roy Rogers' faithful companion, Trigger. The preserved horse is expected to bring as much as $200,000.

Rogers' 1964 Bonneville convertible, with the gear shift replaced by silver pistols, is expected to draw over $100,000.

Guitars, cowboy boots and memorabilia from the Roy Rogers TV show will also be up for auction.

Trigger and many other items all came from the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans museum in Branson, Missouri that closed.

Evans was Rogers' wife. The two married on a ranch in Davis, Oklahoma on New Year's Eve 1947. Together they made more than a hundred movies and television appearances.
