Items that once belonged to two Chicago politicians are set to go on the auction block.
Awards, autographs, photos, and other memorabilia -- including a Bulls Championship ring -- from the extended political careers of late Cook County Board President John Stroger and his son Todd will be auctioned off starting Saturday.
The items were left in an unpaid self-storage unit on the South Side that was won at auction a few months ago.
The two-day sale is being held at Bunte Auction Services, at 755 Church Rd., in Elgin, beginning at 11 a.m.
