Frank Sinatra is an American icon, famous for his baritone voice and distinct eyes. Now you have the chance to sit where "Old Blue Eyes" himself once sat, because the contents of Sinatra's very own "executive suite" once housed in the iconic Golden Nugget Casino in Atlantic City, N.J., are set to hit the auction floor this weekend.

S&S Auction in Swedesboro scooped up the priceless home collection, and 197 lots will go to the highest bidder on Sunday. The "enormous 1980s suite" was furnished with items acquired across the globe under the purview of the casino magnate Steve Wynn, according to CBS News.

"You actually have a chance as the public to own something that Frank Sinatra sat on or slept on," S&S Auction marketing manager David Berenblit told the outlet.

The auction includes a wide range of offerings, from art to chandeliers, and even a few very personal items, including a pair of carved marble toilets, one of which has a gilded seat, and a matching marble bidet. The three items have an estimated value of $7,300 — a far cry from what they were once worth.

"These commodes would probably have cost somewhere around $20,000-30,000 when they were new," Berenblit told CBS News.

What this means is that the size of your wallet isn't likely to lock you out of this auction. While some items could sell for hundreds of thousands, others are likely to fetch far less.
