NEW YORK, - U.S. marshals said a New York auction of items belonging to convicted fraudster Bernie Madoff includes the Ponzi schemer's monogrammed velvet slippers.
The marshals said former possessions of Madoff, 72, at the Nov. 13 auction at Surroundart include the slippers, a 1917 Steinway grand piano, a 10 1/2 carat diamond ring, a desk and a bull-shaped bronze paperweight, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.
"These pieces are the last of what once occupied the homes and lives of Bernard and Ruth Madoff's residences in New York and Montauk, N.Y.," said Joseph Guccione, U.S. marshal for the Southern District of New York.
Madoff is serving a 150-year federal prison sentence in North Carolina.
Man-o-man! I’d hock everything I own to get those slippers!
