Nails’ Precious Memories on Sale

DykstraRing1Despite being hyped as being quite the money manager, Lenny Dykstra’s second career as a finance guru has collapsed in recent months with him being forced into bankruptcy. Now, as a means to try and raise some money, auctioneers are planning on selling a number of memorabilia items that Nails left at a Beverly Hills pawnshop.

Among the items available are his 1986 Mets World Series ring and a trophy from the series. Advanced guesses place the items as being valued for more than $20,000.

DykstraRing2Scheduled to take place in Texas and online October 1 and 2, the auction being held by Heritage Auctions Inc provides the chance for Mets fans to own a piece of history. Hark back to the days when they actually WON games, as opposed to being officially eliminated as of last night.

Meanwhile, Lenny reportedly owes more than $31 million to debtors and has a mere $50,000 in assets. I’m no financial expert myself but that seems like a big problem.
