A laid-off construction worker purchased a tuxedo shirt at a yard sale in Newport Beach, California, last year for $5. Turns out? The shirt was tailor-made for Frank Sinatra. Created by Beverly Hills' Nat Wise, the tags on the top read: "Frank Sinatra" and are dated "Feb. 1987." ""The shirt's measurements exactly matched the ones on record for Mr. Sinatra," said auctioneer Don Presley. "Apparently he wore the shirt to a widely publicized 1988 benefit concert."
