DALLAS (AP) — Items that once belonged to Farrah Fawcett, including everything from her 1977 People's Choice Award to her last driver's license, are set to go up for auction.

The items, which also include scripts, costumes and personal mementoes, are being offered Friday in Dallas by Heritage Auctions. Her nephew, Gregory Walls, of Houston, decided to offer up the items after getting requests from fans for something of hers.

Other items being offered include her leather director's chair from the 1970s, her script from the 1984 television movie "The Burning Bed" and her passport from 1980.

She won the 1977 People's Choice Award for her work on the television series "Charlie's Angels."

Fawcett, a Corpus Christi native, died in June 2009 at the age of 62 after a lengthy battle with cancer.
