Dykstra's items bring more than $162K
NEW YORK -- Lenny Dykstra's championship ring from the 1986 World Series has been auctioned off for more than $56,000.
Heritage Auctions in Dallas said Friday that a collector from Queens, N.Y., won with a bid of $56,762.50. Dykstra and the New York Mets wrapped up that title in Queens, at Shea Stadium.
There were 11 auction items related to Dykstra, and they sold for more than $162,000.
Dykstra filed for bankruptcy protection in July, saying he owed more than $31 million and had about $50,000 in assets.
