Bulger memorabilia being auctioned online

Now that reputed Boston mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger is back behind bars after 16 years on the run, some people are trying to cash in on his notoriety.

Bulger-related items, including bobblehead dolls and documents bearing his signature, have popped up on eBay since his arrest in California last month.

More than a dozen documents related to a $14.3 million lottery ticket Bulger split with three men in 1991 are being sold for $1,200. They include a notarized agreement with Bulger's signature that guaranteed him an annual check of $119,408. Bulger's money was forfeited to the government.

The documents were put up for sale by the former wife of one of the men who shared the prize.

The 81-year-old Bulger has pleaded not guilty in connection to 19 murders.
