BOSTON (WHDH) - Items belonging to convicted Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger were auctioned Saturday, with many of the items selling for thousands of dollars.

Hundreds of belongings seized from Bulger were up for sale. Dozens attended the auction in Boston and bid on everything from jewelry and books to clothing.

A Claddagh ring featuring a 3-carat diamond sold for $23,000. Another piece of jewelry, a 1986 Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup ring, was bought for $9,200 by Billy Brooks. The Hingham resident also bought a rat-shaped mug for $3,600.

“I guess I’ll put it on my desk at work,” said Brooks. “I really don’t know what to do with it.”

Another odd item put up for sale was a punching dummy, which was used as a decoy at Bulger’s hideout in Santa Monica, California. It sold at auction for $4,900.

All the items auctioned Saturday brought in around $109,000. The money will be split among the families of the 11 people Bulger was convicted of murdering.
