BOCA RATON — A ghoulish auction is set to take place Saturday in Boca Raton — at the home where once mighty developer Greg Talbott committed suicide in May.

The bankruptcy sale is an attempt to make dozens of his creditors somewhat whole and includes Talbott’s 2006 Bentley Flying Spur, Blue Book value $70,000, dozens of guns and hundreds of boxes of ammunition.

It’s yet another Gossip Extra exclusive: The auction is set for 11 a.m tomorrow, Apt. 11 A at 300 East Royal Palm Road.

The extensive catalog also includes household furniture, home decor items, antiques, small appliances, clothes, shoes, accessories, fishing rods, art, electronics and various other items.

Talbott, 58, who built hundreds of luxury condos in and around Boca Raton, was pushed into involuntary bankruptcy before he shot himself in the head with a handgun May 14. He died in a hospital hours later.

The flamboyant, hard-charging Talbott was indirectly a victim of the real estate crash of the mid-2000s — despite the fact he once was one of Palm Beach County’s largest single landowners.

Last year, three creditors filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Talbott’s name because they were unable to recuperate a total $3 million they invested in his projects.

    Atlanta Arms is complete and utter re-manufactured garbage. That fact that he choose them as his supplier for his 1911′s (hey he at least had some good/tactical taste) shows what kind of cheap a$$ the guy is. AA would call me once a week to try and become one of our “partners” We tried one time and one time only to use their Match grade 5.56 in one our prototype AR rifles. It was a mess, the powder smelled horrible and there was no power behind it, like they short loaded the powder. Stay away from that auction as far as this is concerned.

    He probably never maintained that Flying B either..$70k is a good deal though, but you get two ego charged idiots bidding and it will go north of 6 figures..

    What’s ghoulish about it, what are they supposed to do with this stuff throw it away? Egomaniac built his “empire” with others money and when the house of cards collapsed he offs himself. Who cares he was no better than anyone else!
