Hundreds of New York Yankees great Babe Ruth‘s personal items will be auctioned off at the stadium this spring, the team announced on Tuesday.

The Hall of Fame inductee’s belongings will be sold by Hunt Auctions through his great-graddaughter, Linda Ruth-Tosetti.

“I just want people to enjoy and appreciate my grandfather’s stuff,” Ruth-Tosetti told CBS News.

Included in the auction will be dozens of pieces of traditional baseball memorabilia as well as his personal belongings like family photos, a pair of hunting gloves and a suitcase he traveled with on a trip to Japan in 1934.

Hunt Auctions President David Hunt described the Great Bambino’s possessions up for grabs as “Things that provide sort of that portal, or that window, to what life was like for him.”

The auction will take place on June 15 at Yankee Stadium.
