Burt Reynolds Auction : Veteran actor to put more than his 600 items on sale

Burt Reynolds to auction personal items amid financial issues, Among the goods: His Best Actor Emmy from “Evening Shade,” the Golden Globe he won for “Boogie Nights,” and wardrobe items from some of his movies.

“I’ve collected so many things that I truly adore but at this stage of my life I find it very difficult to manage them all,” Reynolds wrote in a message in the auction catalogue. “It truly is the time to downsize and for these items that I have loved over the years find new homes where they can be cared for and appreciated.”

Reynolds, 78, is well known for movies like Smokey and the Bandit, Deliverance and The Longest Yard.

The auction is scheduled for Dec. 11 and 12 at The Palms Casino Resort. Online bids will be accepted.

Reynolds, who has reportedly had financial problems in recent years, is also selling boxing gloves signed by Muhammad Ali, a Boston Bruins jersey signed by Bobby Orr and an autographed photo of Wayne Gretzky with Reynolds.

The auction includes dozens of pieces of art, belt buckles, clocks, guns — and an expired American Express card with the name “Burton L Reynolds.”

A 98-inch-tall mounted Kodiak Brown Bear is part of the eclectic collection.
