NEW YORK (AP) - Former New York Mets outfielder Lenny Dykstra's 1986 World Series ring is up for sale.
Auctioneers say they plan to sell a trove of memorabilia the financially troubled All-Star left unclaimed at a Beverly Hills, Calif.-based pawnshop.
The items include the Mets championship ring and a trophy Dykstra won in a series most remembered for an error by Boston Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner, who let a ball roll through his legs. Each item could sell for more than $20,000.
The items were consigned to Dallas-based Heritage Auctions Inc. by famed pawnbroker Yossi Dina.
Dykstra filed for bankruptcy protection in July, saying he owed more than $31 million and had about $50,000 in assets.
The auction is scheduled to take place in Texas and online Oct. 1 and 2.
Dykstra also played for the Philadelphia Phillies.
