Ortiz’s World Series Goggles, Helmet Up for Auction

If you're looking to reenact the celebration in the Red Sox clubhouse, you can now bid on David Ortiz's protective eye and head gear from the 2013 World Series. (Boston Globe)

If you missed out on the chance to buy Big Papi’s beard trimmings (because what else would you do with over $10,000?), you’re in luck, because David Ortiz is auctioning off more World Series memorabilia to raise money for a good cause.

After the World Series MVP’s facial hair brought in nearly $11,000 ($10,877.77, to be exact) to Gillette’s Movember charity, which raises money and awareness for prostate and testicular cancer, he’s selling off his celebratory safety gear to support his David Ortiz’s Children Fund. Both the goggles and the helmet are signed by Ortiz. (Unfortunately, they don’t come with a complimentary bottle of champagne.)

The bidding for each item starts at $1,000, and goes until 7:30 PM on Dec. 14.

Now all that seems to be missing is a promotional MasterCard commercial…

Beard trimmings: $10,877.77

Signed goggles: $1,000.00

Autographed helmet: $1,000.00

15-liter bottle of champagne: $100,000.00

Winning the World Series and taking home the MVP trophy?

Priceless.
