NEW YORK: Talk about a pack rat: Thousands of things that Neil Armstrong saved over the course of a career that saw him become the first man to walk on the moon will be auctioned off this week. Nobody really knew the extent of the stuff Armstrong amassed during his 82 years on earth, not even the children of the man who made history with his feet on July 20, 1969 . Armstong's offspring found the treasures after he died in 2012, tucked away at his house or that of their mother, his ex-wife.Some have historical value, such as flags or medallions he wore during the Apollo 11 lunar mission.Rick and brother Mark decided to spread out the rest of the collection.
