ST. LOUIS (AP) - Hundreds of bidders, most presumably St. Louis Cardinals fans, now own a piece of Stan Musial memorabilia after an online auction of his possessions.
Officials with Heritage Auctions of Dallas said Monday that winning bids for the month-long auction totaled $1.2 million, far more than expected. The auction ended Saturday.
Items ranged from game-worn jerseys to World Series rings to Musial's legendary harmonicas.
Musial died in January at age 92. His family kept most of his belongings but grandson Brian Schwarze said Musial's four-bedroom Ladue home was stuffed with so many things he'd collected over the years that relatives decided on an auction.
A 2011 Cardinals World Series ring given to Musial sold for $191,200. A four-page letter to Musial from Ty Cobb in 1952 went for $71,700.
