MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Sports fans are helping keep a local radio legend’s legacy alive.

George Chappel, who was known over the WCCO Radio and television airwaves as Dark Star, died this past June. He was just 66 years old.

Along with being a big sports fan, Star was a horse racing enthusiast. His personal collection of memorabilia went on sale on Saturday in Minneapolis.

Some of the items included dozens of professional sports team jackets, jerseys, hundreds of signed baseballs, bobble heads and model cars.

He also had an impressive sports and music library.

The sale continues through Monday at the St. Anthony Main building.
