Fans are getting the chance to snag their own part of Whitney Houston's legacy.
As you surely know, the music legend passed away back in 2012 from an accidental drug overdose at the age of 48.
Now, dozens of the New Jersey native's personal items (think: wedding dress, countless awards, jewelry, debit cards, a passport, etc.) are being put up for auction through Heritage Auctions on June 24 and 25.
The sale is even expected to rake in a minimum of $500,000!
Most of the personal items will begin bidding for $500-$1,000, while her gorgeous Marc Bauer wedding gown she wore to say "I do" to Bobby Brown will go for at least $3,500.
Other items from her wardrobe include various red-carpet dresses and a custom leather bomber jacket inscribed with her nickname, "Nippy." Amazing!
Some of the awards that will be up for grabs include: The 1988 American Music Award for I Wanna Dance With Somebody, the multi-platinum plaque from her 1986 debut album, several Grammy nomination certificates, and a 1993 Billboard Music Award for I Will Always Love You.
Garry Shrum, head of Heritage's Entertainment and Music Memorabilia division, dished on working with the Houston family:
"We gave them some ideas, they gave us some ideas, and we came up with this 119-piece collection that's basically a retrospective of Whitney from the beginning. From when she first started singing after she left being a background singer for Chaka Khan and Lou Rawls. We have her passport from the beginning, all these various awards and outfits, all kinds of cool and groovy things."
In case you're looking for a present for us, we wouldn't mind a few of these things… that's for sure!

The Legend/Teigen family like a good prank!
On Thursday, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen took their infant daughter to visit the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA where the Grammy winner was slated to perform the national anthem at the first game of the NBA finals! Aww.
The proud poppa couldn't help but take to Snapchat to document his lovely ladies visiting him during rehearsal. While Legend teased that it was little Luna's "first basketball game," the Sports Illustrated model took to Twitter and clarified:
Watch Adele SHUT DOWN A Fan For Recording During Her Concert — Says They Should 'Enjoy It In Real Life'!
As you may know, Adele is busy touring the world right now and over the weekend, one fan learned the hard way that the Brit does NOT like to be recorded while she's singing live!
On Sunday, the 28-year-old had a concert in Verona, Italy where she stopped her set to call a woman out for filming the concert on her camera and not "enjoy[ing] it in real life"! The Grammy winning artist even pointed out:
"This isn't a DVD, this is a real show. I'd really like you to enjoy my show because there's lots of people outside that couldn't come in."
Luckily for us, another concertgoer filmed the interaction and shared it to Twitter, tweeting:
Baby Luna Meets John Legend's Grandmother & Listens To Her Daddy's Music — Cue The Awws AND The Tears!
We mean… honestly couldn't be obsessed more.
On Thursday, the little one got a special visit from her great grandmother, who came all the way from Ohio to meet the next generation.
The R&B crooner — who often talks about how his grandma taught him to play piano — shared the precious moment (above) captioned:
"Granny came from Ohio to meet Luna today"
David Foster might not be the coldhearted monster he was starting to resemble amid his divorce to Yolanda Hadid!
Why, you may ask? Well, after reports began circulating that the Grammy winner had filed a petition asking the court to not issue Gigi Hadid's momma any spousal support, it was revealed that David WILL be taking care of his former flame financially — but not forever!
Hmm, go on!
Apparently, Yo and David have struck a property settlement agreement thanks to the prenup they signed before their 2011 nuptials. Okay, that makes sense!
Nonetheless, it's said the agreement is rather hefty but not enough to set Miz Hadid for life. One source dished:
Blake Shelton Tries Sushi For The FIRST Time With Jimmy Fallon — And It's As Ridiculous As You Think — Watch!
Of course the results are as HIGHlarious as you'd expect, as Shelton is mostly disgusted by the food — except for that rice wine. LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the ridiculously funny clip (below) and let us know if you hate sushi as much as Blake!
On Monday, it was revealed that David Foster has ZERO interest in paying spousal support to Yolanda Hadid. WHAT?
According to court documents, the Grammy winner has requested that the court terminate their ability to award spousal support to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star. Is David sweatin' those medical bills?
Who knows. However, the documents also ask that
