    Over 50 watches will be sold in the auction.

    It's time for another Madoff auction, and this time, the public has a shot at owning some of Ruth and Bernie's more personal items.

    The U.S. Marshals Service has collected 599 items from the Madoff's Upper East Side apartment, which will be auctioned off at the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers this Saturday.

    Gaston and Sheehan Auctioneers will sell off dozens of fur coats, jewelery, and watches to the highest bidders, in addition to some everyday items that give a glimpse into life as a Madoff.

    Dishware, fishing gear, hockey memorabilia including a Wayne Gretzky action figure and signed hockey cards are for sale, along with a boogie board made much cooler by the name "Madoff" scrawled on the back in black marker.

    Those interested in fooling people by sending out correspondence on Bernard Madoff Stationary sealed in Bernard Madoff envelopes, can have their fun for the right price. Those interested can even sign their names with a "Bernard Madoff Investment Securities" pen for added delight.

    A live preview will be held at the hotel Friday from 11 to 4pm.

    All proceeds will be divided among the thousands of victims who lost their money in Madoff's famous ponzi-scheme, which led him to a 150 year prison sentence he's currently serving.

    The U.S. Marshals have already auctioned off Madoff's Palm Beach and New York properties and are set to auction off 8 (yes, 8) of his boats later this month.
