Former Atlanta Falcons and Houston Oilers head coach Jerry Glanville is holding 'living estate sale' at his lake home in Dawsonville this week. Items for sale include several NFL game balls, watches and rings from collegiate bowl games, numerous photographs, and boots made from NFL footballs.

Glanville, 72, said he decided to begin selling items because "it would have been too much work to leave for family if I wait until I'm in the box," reports DawsonNews.com

The former coach - known for leaving tickets to each game he coached at will call for Elvis Presley - is also throwing in items from his racing days. Glanville was owner/driver of the No. 81 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team from 1995-99, DawsonNews.com notes.

Donna Davis, who is running the estate sale, told the website, "Many of Jerry's items are one of kind, and pricing items like these are a challenge because they are rarely seen on the resale market."

Davis added, "Jerry and his wife have been wonderful to work with. Jerry is taking a great interest in making sure I am aware of the significance of some of the items he will be selling."

The sale began on Thursday and will continue on Friday and Saturday.
