NEW YORK (AP) -- Tony Soprano is shedding his wardrobe for charity.

James Gandolfini, who starred in the hit HBO series "The Sopranos", is auctioning off 24 outfits that he wore on camera. The threads are expected to raise over $36,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps soldiers severely wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Among the items for sale are the button-down blue shirt he wore in the opening credits and the bathrobe he donned to fetch the morning paper.

Gandolfini's contract let him keep the clothes he wore, and he's authenticated everything.

The auction house is also offering the blood-splattered costume worn in the scene when Tony is shot by a demented Uncle Junior.
