The footballs, jerseys and framed photographs that put O.J. Simpson in a Nevada prison are now in the hands of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and then likely headed for the auction block.
Today, a court hearing dealing with the items confiscated from Simpson is scheduled in Santa Monica, California.
The items will most likely be auctioned on the Internet shortly to help satisfy a $33.5 million wrongful-death judgment against Simpson in 1997.
Simpson’s attempt to retrieve the items by leading a handful of cohorts in a bungled stickup of memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas resulted in his being sentenced last year on armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges.
Simpson is serving 9 to 33 years but on Monday he asked the Nevada Supreme Court to let him out of prison while it decides whether to overturn his conviction.
