 BOSTON (AP) -Brian McNamee was planning to dump all his mementos of his relationship with Roger Clemens.
Then a friend persuaded him to think better of it.
Now the former personal trainer who claims he injected the seven time Cy Young Award winner with steroids is selling dozens of personal items in an online auction, and donating the profits to his juvenile diabetes charity.
A baseball signed by Clemens and McNamee that started the day Thursday at $38 was bidding $4,000 by late afternoon, said Phil Castinetti, a friend of McNamee's and owner of SportsWorld in Saugus who is handling the sale.
At Castinetti's suggestion, McNamee turned over 50 to 60 items including hats, uniforms, balls and pictures of Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Jose Canseco - ``all the steroid guys,'' Castinetti says.
To make them unique, McNamee also signed them, and managed to take a dig at Clemens at the same time. Clemens often signs ``Cy 7'' after his name to denote his seven Cy Youngs.
McNamee signed some of his ``Ly 0,'' - as in zero lies.
The first auction will end Friday.
Sorry, no syringes.
