Default Bernie Madoff Auction Includes Autographs, Cards, and his Famous Mets Jacket

Bernie Madoff Auction Includes Autographs, Cards, and his Famous Mets Jacket

While Bernie and Ruth Madoff's jewelry and furs will get most of the attention, Saturday's US Marshal's sale also includes some nice hockey cards, an MJ rookie and some autographed footballs.


He's a 71 year-old guy looking at spending the rest of his life behind bars.

Not an attractive proposition for Bernie Madoff, but most of the folks he swindled to the tune of $65 billion aren't shedding many tears. Madoff had his fun with the Ponzi scheme that unraveled but now his toys--and the evidence of luxury he and his wife enjoyed--are about to be sold.

An auction is scheduled this Saturday in New York to help the government recover at least a small part of what Madoff owes his victims. Of the hundreds of items in the Madoff auction, between 150 and 200 items belonged to the Madoffs.

Gaston & Sheehan Auctioneers
