The former Sixers president first listed his 10,500-square-foot mansion in December for $7.95 million, but earlier this year dropped the price tag to $6.25 million.

Through Premiere Estates Auction Company, the home is set to go through an "absolute auction" this fall, meaning the highest bidder will own the property, no matter the circumstances.

Croce, who purchased this mansion in 1993, is selling the home to downsize with his wife, Diane, he told us last year.

Croce's pricey pad, which sits on three-and-a-half acres on Mount Moro Road, is listed as a two-story single-family colonial with six bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

There's a tennis court, pool, pool house, and a 10-car garage also on the estate.

The master suite has three walls of windows, a fireplace, and his-and-her baths. According to the listing, "her bath," which was completed last year, includes a marble shower, inlayed marble floor, furniture-styled sink, and seated makeup vanity.

Croce also auctioned off his fancy furnishings earlier this year, offering items worth tens of thousands, from European castle locks collected by Houdini (estimated to be worth at least $50,000), to a bronze mermaid (estimated to be worth $750 to $1,500).
