James "Whitey" Bulger Memorabilia Being Auctioned Online
The name of "Gasko" is seen on an apartment directory, where fugitive crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger and his longtime companion Catherine Greig lived using the alias, in Santa Monica, Calif., Thursday, June 23, 2011. Bulger spent almost all of his 16 years on the lam in the same Santa Monica apartment complex, paying his rent in cash every month while he and his girlfriend hid from one of the biggest manhunts in U.S. history, the property managers said Thursday.

BOSTON (AP).- 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 Inc.'s auction website 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.
