ATLANTA (AP) — Warren Spahn's son doesn't want to choose a sole heir among his five children, so he has put his father's 1957 Cy Young award on the market.

Greg Spahn, the only child to baseball's career winningest left-hander, will have more than 800 items — most of Warren's Spahn's memorabilia collection — in a live auction that begins Monday in New York.

Hunt Auctions has a price range between $75,000 and $125,000 for the Cy Young Award. Other expensive items include a 1958 National League championship ring, 300th career victory ball and Spahn's personal Hall of Fame ring.

Greg Spahn is retired from real estate sales and investments, but wants extra college money for his children.

Warren Spahn died in 2003. His 363 victories rank fifth on the overall career list.
