A Steinway baby grand piano that belonged to Rock Hudson and a needlepoint rug created by the late actor were big sellers at an auction of items from his estate that brought almost $90,000 in New York. The items were among more than 700 pieces of Hudson memorabilia auctioned by William Doyle Galleries. Hudson died last October at 59 of acquired immune deficiency syndrome. The pieces came from his New York City apartment and a house in Beverly Hills. The piano sold for $6,250, while the wool rug sold for $2,100.
