TORONTO — Hundreds of items belonging to Burt Reynolds, including memorabilia from some of his films, will be auctioned off next month in Las Vegas.

Among the more than 600 items up for grabs is Reynolds’ 1991 Emmy Award (for Evening Shade), his 1998 Golden Globe (for Boogie Nights) and several People’s Choice Awards.

“I’ve collected so many things that I truly adore but at this stage of my life I find it very difficult to manage them all,” Reynolds wrote in a message in the auction catalogue. “It truly is the time to downsize and for these items that I have loved over the years find new homes where they can be cared for and appreciated.”

Reynolds, 78, is well known for movies like Smokey and the Bandit, Deliverance and The Longest Yard.

The auction is scheduled for Dec. 11 and 12 at The Palms Casino Resort. Online bids will be accepted.

Reynolds, who has reportedly had financial problems in recent years, is also selling boxing gloves signed by Muhammad Ali, a Boston Bruins jersey signed by Bobby Orr and an autographed photo of Wayne Gretzky with Reynolds.

The auction includes dozens of pieces of art, belt buckles, clocks, guns — and an expired American Express card with the name “Burton L Reynolds.”

A 98-inch-tall mounted Kodiak Brown Bear is part of the eclectic collection.
