Frank Sinatra's tuxedo shirt up for auction

Sinatra and Crosby 

Imagine you're at a yard sale in Newport Beach. And imagine you're feeling frisky and you splurge on a  shirt for $5. And imagine the shirt came with a sewn-in tag that reads "Frank Sinatra," and "Nat Wise of London ... Sunset Strip, Calif." with a date of "Feb. 1987." (A small note for Sinatra trivia fans: On Feb. 25, 1987, Sinatra guest-starred in an episode of "Magnum, P.I.," his last major acting role according to IMDB.) The purchase in question was made by Rick Gorski, a laid-off construction worker, and the sale will take place this weekend at Don Presley Auction in Orange. Ring-a-ding-ding.
