A cardboard guitar cut-out from Keith Richards. Several velvet jackets. A lithograph of Eric Clapton.

According to a Reuters story, these were some of the items sold at auction Saturday by Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood and his ex-wife, Jo, following last year's dissolution of their 23-year marriage. The memorabilia sell-off took place at Julien's Auctions' Beverly Hills gallery. 

The auction reportedly raised tens of thousands of dollars from such items as a 1955 Fender Stratocaster guitar that Wood often played in concert. The auction house described the items as jointly owned by the Woods, who separated in 2008.

Some proceeds from the auction will be donated to MusiCares, a Grammy Awards-backed charity that assists music industry members with financial and addiction problems.
