Also up for grabs are a pair of Joey's leather pants and some of his leather accessories, including a leather belt that looks like it's carrying ammo, a spiked wristband and fingerless gloves.
All the items come directly from family of the late Ramones frontman, said Bobby Livingston of Amherst, NH-based RR Auction -- whose long-time employees still tell of when The Ramones stopped in to shop for autographs and rock memorabilia. - [NY Post]
