WoW....sad he has fallen on hard times....Check out the article...

http://www.luxist.com/2009/12/10/lenny-dykstras-patek-philippe-and-more-at-auction/



My colleague Deirdre Woollard has been entertainingly chronicling former baseball star Lenny Dykstra's travails in bankruptcy court. Now it seems the hard-charging athlete-turned-entrepreneur is trying to raise a little ready money by selling off some of his prized possessions. Among the lots at Patrizzi & Co.'s Dec. 14th Exceptional Watchmaking Masterpieces auction in NYC is Dykstra's 18K white gold Patek Philippe (above) made in 2004. The fine and rare annual calendar timepiece shows the phases of the moon and has a power reserve indication. Estimated at $28,000 - $ 35,000, it comes accompanied by a photograph of Dykstra playing with the New York Mets. Also included in the sale are two major pieces of Dykstra sporting memorabilia: a 1986 New York Mets World Series trophy and plaque, estimated at $18,000 - $25,000; and a Silver Slugger Award from 1993 with a Louisville Slugger bat and National League Player of the Week 1990 plaque, estimated at $12,000 - $16,000.

I remember watching the Real Sports stories on him and the giant houses, plains, and cars. It looked like he was living WAYWAY beyond even his means and apparently that was true. Sad.

Thats the problem James....These celebs and athletes live like they are royalty with old money...eventually it dry's up....You cant forget where you came from unless you are royalty.. Look at mike Tyson...Ok i know he is a nut job but he blew 400 million dollars...400 million would not only last me a life time but it would go down generations...:madd
