The items are part of a collection that was submitted by Lewinsky's former lover Andy Bleiler to special prosecutor Kenneth Starr during his investigation into the Clinton-Lewinsky affair in the late 90s, auction manager Laura Yntema told NBC News.

According to the auction website, the items were sent to the Bleiler family after the case closed, and now Bleiler's ex-wife Kate Nason has decided to put the items up for auction.

During Starr's investigation, it was revealed that Lewinsky and Bleiler, who was her former high school teacher, had engaged in a five-year affair. The letter in the auction lot is a letter to Bleiler that Clinton wrote and signed at Lewinsky's request.
