A local auction house has found a lot of Minnesota gold: memorabilia from Minnesota Twins legend Kirby Puckett.

The incredible collection of Puckett memorabilia includes the jersey he wore when he hit the game-winning home run in game 6 of the 1991 World Series, his 1986 Rawlings Gold Glove award for being the best defensive centerfielder in the American League, his 1986 Silver Slugger award which is awarded to the best offensive player at each position, dozens of other autographed memorabilia and even some of Puckett's suits. All items come with a letter of provenance from the Puckett family to guarantee its authenticity. All items can be found here. Bidding ends on April 23rd. 

Puckett is known as one of the greatest Minnesota Twins of all time. Puckett was the star player on both the 1987 and 1991 teams that won the World Series. Puckett's most memorable highlights came in game 6 of the 1991 World Series when he made a leaping catch off the Metrodome wall to steal a home run away. Later in the game, he hit a home run in extra innings to win the game for the Twins. 

Puckett died after suffering a stroke in 2006. He was 45 years old.
