More O.J. Memorabilia

OJ Simpson Prison

By LASIS Staff

On November 11, LASIS reporter Jennifer Williams wrote about an item rumored to be for sale: the  knife used by O.J. in the gruesome murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and waiter Ron Goldman.

Now comes word about another bit of O.J. memorabilia on the auction block, and this time, it’s not just a rumor.  His book “If I Did It”, as explained by Ms. Williams, was ordered destroyed by a court…but some copies were saved, and one is now available on eBay.

It can be yours for $250,000.

Granted, a quarter of a million dollars isn’t what it used to be, the books on this Worst Books list are probably better than O.J.’s, and are available from your public library, free of charge.
