Ozzie Smith flooding the gold market?

Last we checked, gold was gangbusters, selling for more than $1,700 an ounce.

Maybe that's why Ozzie Smith has decided it's time to sell all 13 of his Gold Gloves to the highest bidders. From a press release:

Laguna Niguel, Cal. (October 16, 2012) – SCP Auctions is proud to announce The Ozzie Smith Collection of baseball memorabilia for its November 2012 online auction. The collection features more than 100 pieces, many of which are Smith’s awards and trophies that he collected during his Hall of Fame career. Among the collection highlights are his 13 Gold Glove Awards from 1980-1992, 11 of his All-Star Game rings, and St. Louis Cardinals World Series rings from 2006 and 2011.

Hey, you can't take them with you. Maybe the St. Louis Cardinals will step up and buy some of this stuff for their museum or whatever. It would seem sort of a shame if everything just wound up in some plutocrat's basement.
