The photographs of long-time Dallas Cowboys team photographer Ron St. Angelo — some 100,000 images — will head to the auction block next month to be sold in one lot through Lelands.com.

Here’s the catch — one bigger than anything Michael Irvin ever hauled in — they’re selling in one lot. And the buyer gets the copyrights.

Can you say priceless? Can you say deep pockets necessary? The opening bid is $50,000.

The photographs document America’s Team from 1979 to today, capturing some of the biggest names in Cowboys history as well as opponents and even some celebrities who attended games. (Yes, even Jessica Simpson.)

Also among the highlights in the film, negatives and digital imaging collection? Three Super Bowl championships.

The collection is on the block until Nov. 21. Here’s a slideshow of some memorable images included …
