(AP) — The winning bidder on over $1 million worth of memorabilia from a recent auction of Johnny Bench’s personal collection is returning the items to the Hall of Fame catcher, with whom he’s been friends since 1967.

Businessman Alan Horwitz successfully bid for Bench’s 1975 and ’76 World Series rings last month, among other items. Bench and his family have offered the items for display to several locations, including the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, the Reds Hall of Fame, the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Bench’s museum in his hometown of Binger, Oklahoma.
