In the market for some tiny bottles of low-grade vodka touched by a Ponzi scheme? Today's your lucky day.

Convicted Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff robbed the wealthy of $65 billion -- and was a liquor collector. Of mini-bar booze, that is. "[Madoff] was clearly not a connoisseur, or a serious wine collector," said Kimberly Janis, director at Morrell Fine Wine Auctions, which will offer for sale 58 lots from Madoff's booze collection next Wednesday.
One lot is a selection of 2-ounce bottles of Smirnoff vodka, Bombay gin and Grand Marnier liqueur. The estimate: $10 to $20.
