(Pittsburgh) -- Former Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Bill Mazeroski is selling memorabilia from the most iconic moment of his Hall of Fame career.

Mazeroski will have several personal items auctioned at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory in November, including the jersey he wore in Game 7 of the 1960 World Series. "Maz," as he's known in Pittsburgh, hit a solo home run leading off the bottom of the ninth to lift the Pirates to a championship.

He says the jersey, which is expected to go for more than $100,000, has been sitting around collecting mothballs for years and felt it was time to ``share it with the public.'' Mazeroski, who spent 17 seasons with the Pirates, also plans to sell six Gold Glove Awards and the 1960 Babe Ruth Award.
