Unusual are the shoes and clothing, which include many pairs of athletic shoes and several knee-length coats and jackets in velvet, leopard prints and shiny materials. There's also a silk robe, a bright pink dress shirt and a pair of green boots to match that green velvet jacket.
Keep in mind that the former owner of Josh Slocum's in Newport Beach stands 6-foot-8 and wears a size 14 shoe.
Unique furniture and decor items include a pool table, artsy cabinets, quilts, tribal masks and drums, a bronze engraving of a Roman scene and Rodman's own portable red carpet. Sports collectors will gravitate toward the awards, trophies, game balls (some signed), locker room benches and a small figurine of Sir Freak with an accompanying bust.
