KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A two-time Cy Young Award winner and former World Series MVP says he is putting most of his memorabilia up for auction because it's gathering dust in a storage shed and the proceeds will be used to benefit others.

Brett Saberhagen spent half of his 16-year major league career as a Kansas City Royal and was MVP of the 1985 World Series championship team. The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/11GOjNV ) reports the auction, conducted at SCPAuctions.com, concludes Sunday and includes 77 items from Saberhagan.

Among the more significant items up for bid is his 1985 Cy Young Award, which has a current bid of $19,965, and his 1985 World Series MVP trophy, with a bid of $9,983.

The proceeds will go to his foundation and four children.
