ST. PAUL – Autographed baseball cards, other sports memorabilia, rare coins, notable artwork and vintage jewelry taken from abandoned safe-deposit boxes are up for grabs at an auction being staged by the Minnesota Department of Commerce.

Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman says the money raised from the items sold will be held until the rightful owner claims it.

The auction will dispatch the contents of some 5,000 bank boxes considered deserted. Money from the sales will be held in accounts for the original owners to potentially claim.   Rothman says the money will wait to be claimed indefinitely.

Rothman says to find out if you are owed money, you can log on to the website missingmoney.com.
