Now Bankrupt, Dykstra Memorabilia On The Block

Financially troubled Lenny Dykstra’s 1986 New York Mets World Series championship trophy and ring, unclaimed after he left them with a Beverly Hills, California pawn shop, now will be offered in a sports memorabilia public auction to be conducted by Heritage Auctions (www.HA.com) in Dallas, Texas and online, Oct. 1 and 2.  “The trophy and the ring are each expected to sell for $20,000 or more,” said Chris Ivy, Director of Sports Auctions at Heritage Auctions. 

 “They were consigned to the auction by Yossi Dina, ‘the Pawnbroker to the Rich and Famous’ who owns the South Beverly Wilshire Jewelry and Loan in Beverly Hills.”
 
The pawn shop also consigned two other unclaimed items from Dykstra: his autographed, game-winning 9th inning home run baseball he hit in game three of the 1986 National League Championship Series playoff against Houston that is expected to sell for $4,000 or more and his 1993 Philadelphia National League Championship ring that is expected to bring $10,000 or more in the auction.
 
“These are treasures from the baseball career of one of the most fascinating figures in modern sports; a scrappy lead-off hitter for the 1986 World Champion New York Mets and 1993 National League Champion Philadelphia Phillies who is remembered for his clutch hits, bench-clearing brawls and bulging a cheek of chewing tobacco,” said Ivy. 
 
Nicknamed “Nails,” Dykstra had a post-baseball reputation as an astute business person operating a chain of car washes, a real estate development company and a charter airline service.  He filed for bankruptcy in July.
