According to The Boston Globe that includes his "diamond claddagh ring, his collection of hats and hoodies, and even his porcelain rat pencil holder."

But if you're looking to score some of Bulger's belongings, it'll cost you. One of the most valuable items is that claddagh ring valued at $48,000 and a 1986 Stanley Cup championship ring worth about $3,000. (Via Time

The U.S. Marshals Service will auction off the items — all from his Santa Monica, Calif. apartment. The profits will reportedly be split among the families of his victims.

According to the Globe, also up for sale is a boxing mannequin of Bulgers. It reportedly  sat in his apartment window to make it look like there was always someone keeping a lookout.
