WACO, Texas (AP) - The outfit Lone Ranger actor Clayton Moore wore when making appearances as the character after retiring from television is going up for auction in Texas.

Waco-based A & S Auction Co. will offer the items Saturday. The auction house's owner thinks the outfit could sell for at least $75,000.

Moore, who died in 1999, played the masked lawman on the ABC television series "The Lone Ranger" from 1949 to 1957.

The auction house says that after retiring from television, Moore made appearances in character at events including fairs. His outfit included a powder-blue shirt and pants, red kerchief, Stetson hat, boots, a gun belt and Colt pistols.

The outfit spent more than a decade in the collection of a late Texas businessman whose family is offering the items.
