Los Angeles: Two of veteran actor Al Pacino's award trophies are going up for auction.
The Goldin Auctions company is offering a treasure chest of celebrity items online, including a Tony Award and a Golden Globe won by Pacino, Frank Sinatra's sailor's costume from the 1945 film "Anchors Aweigh" and a Les Paul guitar owned by both Joe Walsh and Jimmy Page, reports nydailynews.com.
The minimum bid on the Tony trophy is $10,000 and the Golden Globe trophy is $25,000. By way of comparison, John Wayne's Golden Globe for "True Grit" went for $143,400 at an auction in 2011. Goldin said he expects the Pacino items to go up to 10 times the minimum bids.
The auction will open for preview later this week and bids will be accepted starting Jan 12 through Feb 7.
Pacino won the Tony in 1969 for best featured actor in "Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?" while he won the Golden Globe in 1973 for playing the anti-corruption New York police officer in "Serpico".
