Sopranos fans can bring out their inner-gangster June 25 when James Gandolfini puts 24 outfits he wore as mob boss on the HBO series on auction at Christie's. Per the New York Post, "The best item in the lot for the truly bloodthirsty fan has got to be the bloody clothes Tony was wearing when he was shot in the gut by Uncle Junior...The lot is expected to fetch $2,000 to $3,000. Another fan favorite will be the tan cotton bathrobe with lavender trim and an embroidered 'S' that Tony wore in the pilot episode while getting the morning paper. Christie's estimates its price at $1,000 to $1,500." Proceeds go toward Wounded Warrior Project, which aids severely injured soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. [NYP]
