ST. LOUIS (AP) - Fans of St. Louis Cardinals great Stan Musial will get a chance to own a piece of his personal collection - items ranging from game-worn jerseys to championship rings to harmonicas - through an online auction that's now under way.
Musial died in January at age 92, a year after his wife died. The family kept many mementos and donated many others.
Musial's grandson, Brian Musial Schwarze, says Stan the Man's modest home in Ladue, Mo., was filled with items even relatives didn't know existed.
With so much stuff, the family decided to auction some of it off.
The auction of 400 lots of items began Thursday. Heritage Auctions of Dallas is hosting the online auction. Bidding closes Nov. 7 through Nov. 9, depending on the lot.
