Ortiz's helmet, goggles up for auction
The goggles and helmet worn here by David Ortiz could be yours -- if you're willing to splurge.
Just days after the shavings from his beard sold for charity for almost $11,000, World Series MVP David Ortiz is auctioning off the goggles and helmet he wore during the Red Sox championship celebration.
Both items, which are signed by Big Papi, are included in the David Ortiz Children’s Fund auction, which is part of his annual Charity Golf Event in the Dominican Republic. The online bidding started at 12:01 a.m. ET Monday and will run to 7:30 p.m. ET Dec. 14, when the highest online bidders for each item will become the starting bidders at a live auction at the golf event.
The starting online bid for each item? Only $1,000.
