BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - J.R. wasn't selling oil this time. He was selling himself. He still made a pretty penny.

Larry Hagman, who played the cold, conniving oil baron J.R. Ewing on the beloved 1980s series "Dallas," auctioned off many of his personal valuables Saturday in Beverly Hills.

Caroline Galloway of Julien's Auctions said a silver saddle was the priciest item sold, fetching $80,000.

Other big items included a portrait of Hagman's co-star Jim Davis that went for more than $38,000, a replica bottle from Hagman's earlier series "I Dream of Jeannie" that brought in more than $10,000, and a pair of pistols that fetched more than $4,000.

The 79-year-old Hagman put in an appearance, describing items to the crowd then sitting in the audience during bidding.

The collection brought in more than $500,000.
