The US Marshals Service will auction off many of the items seized from James "Whitey" Bulger's Santa Monica apartment.
One of the items seized is a boxing mannequin that Bulger propped to make it appear as if someone was keeping watch.
Authorities are concerned some people may perceive it as glorifying the convicted mobster if items of little value are included.
Two relatives of Bulger's victims said they supported the government's effort to get as much money as possible for the families.
"They are trying to do the right thing," said Tim Connors, whose father was gunned down by Bulger in 1975.
Bulger has appealed his federal conviction and still faces murder charges in Oklahoma and Florida.
