Tony Soprano makes an offer -- his wardrobe

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The fate of brutal North Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano may have been unclear when HBO’s mafia drama “The Sopranos” ended last year, but his wardrobe is headed for a certain ending: it’s being auctioned for charity.

James Gandolfini, who played Soprano for six seasons over 8-1/2 years, is selling his personal costume wardrobe in a Christie’s pop culture auction in New York on June 25, with all proceeds going to a charity that helps wounded U.S. troops.

The 24 lots include a bloody outfit worn when Soprano was shot at the beginning of season six by Uncle Junior in a fit of dementia, which is estimated to fetch up to $3,000, and his signature white tank top, light blue striped boxer shorts, striped short robe and leather scuffs that could make $1,500.

Also up for grabs are a selection of costumes worn by other “Sopranos” characters, including Junior Soprano, Paulie Walnuts and A.J. Soprano.

The award-winning HBO series broke new ground for television: portraying a conflicted man who tries to balance family life with his Mafia career.
