BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Hundreds of items belonging to the late actor Burt Reynolds will go up for auction this weekend.

There are items of his clothing, old identification cards, and even high school memorabilia from his time living in Palm Beach County.

Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, California is running the auction both online and in person through Sunday.

The main attraction is likely to be the Trans Am car that Reynolds drove in the movie 'Smokey and the Bandit.'

"Obviously the car is going to be the big ticket item," said Martin Nolan with Julien’s Auctions. "We have over 800 items from Burt's life and career here at the auction."

The actor passed away in 2018. He maintained strong ties to the Palm Beach County area for most of his life.

"We have his passports, credit cards, driving license, old expired passport, of course, but quite personal things, items of luggage, belts, belt buckles, his ties, his wardrobe, shirts," Nolan said. "I mean, all of these items are sought after. They represent Burt Reynolds. He was a man's man and the ladies loved him too. He was a global icon and that will be reflected in the auction this weekend at Julien's Auctions this Saturday and Sunday."

A massive amount of the memorabilia relates to Florida State University, where Reynolds played football. Several items display the Florida State Seminole logo.

Items are likely to capture a wide range of bids, from $25 to $500,000, according to the auction house.
