James “Whitey” Bulger’s gold and diamond claddagh ring, his collection of hats and hoodies, and even the rat-shaped cup he used as a pencil holder could soon be sold to the highest bidder, according to federal authorities.

The US Marshals Service will auction off many of the items seized from Bulger’s Santa Monica, Calif., apartment following his arrest two years ago, and the profits will be split among the families of the people who were murdered by Bulger, authorities said.
