ST. LOUIS, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Hall of Fame St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Ozzie Smith is auctioning off more than 100 pieces of memorabilia, an auction house said.

Items up for bidding include Smith's numerous Gold Glove awards, 11 of his All-Star game rings and the two World Series rings the Cardinals gave him after the team's wins in 2006 and 2011. "The Wizard" was long retired by the time the team won its two most recent championships but he was given a title ring each time because he is a member of the team's Hall of Fame, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

SPC Auctions said Smith decided to put the memorabilia up for sale as part of his estate and family planning.

The auction, open to registered bidders, runs from Nov. 14 to Dec. 1 at SPCAuctions.com.
