Is There Any Decency Left in the Sports Memorabilia World?

USA Today reported this morning that the family of the late Roberto Clemente is angry at an auction house for auctioning pieces of the airplane that crashed in Nicaragua on December 31, 1973, killing the Pirates' Hall of Famer. Roberto Clemente was on a relief mission at the time, helping ferry supplies to flood victims.

It may be that the auctioneers have the right to do this, but, even if they did, does that make it right? Is nothing sacred anymore?
