MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Friends and acquaintances of the late-radio personality Dark Star say he lived larger than life. The things he left behind prove that.

A collection of rare sports memorabilia, furniture, games, signs, and other odds and ends will be up for sale as part of Dark Star’s (a.k.a. George Chapple) estate sale, to be held next weekend.

“Dark was kind of a big (kid) at heart,” said Dennis Hagen, who is holding the sale.

Dark Star, who was a longtime sports talk show host on WCCO Radio, died in June at the age of 66.

Hagen says Chapple wanted him to sell his items after his death, as Chapple had no living family members to give it to. Hagen said he handled a similar sale following the death of Chapple’s mother.

Hagen says the amount of stuff Dark Star had in his two-bedroom apartment is astonishing.

“He’s got an Avatar pinball machine that was in his living room,” Hagen said. “That seemed a little odd to me for living room attire in a normal home. But that was Dark.”

The sale will take place over three days, from Saturday, Sept. 8 to Monday, Sept. 10. The location of the sale is yet to be released.

Hagen says he expects the sale to generate “tens of thousands of dollars” for Chapple’s estate, which he says he believes is going to a friend of Dark’s mother.
