The sad news about the closing of Ozzie's Restaurant and Sports Bar is somewhat good news for collectors. Everything must go. That means dozens of autographed jerseys from some of the biggest athletes in sports... photos of Ozzie Smith in action and with other athletes... Just about everything in the restaurant will be sold at auction Saturday, October 24th and Sunday, October 25th. The sports stuff goes on the 25th.
And you don't have to be at the restaurant at Westport Plaza (which closes Friday, October 16th) to bid. You can do it on line at the BCL Auction's website.
By next Wednesday, BCL Auction owner Bill Cockrum says he'll have a list of all the items that will be auctioned off.
The only things we know of at this point that Ozzie Smith isn't going to part with are his 13 Gold Gloves he won for being the best shortstop in baseball year after year.
I don't blame him.
