Tough guy James Gandolfini with arms crossed on the cover of season one of "The Sopranos" doubled in value on eBay on Wednesday night.

Tough guy James Gandolfini with a pistol in "The Mexican" had a $50 bid.

And a portrait of tough guy James Gandolfini smoking a cigar was going for 81 bucks.

Meanwhile, bids for a color 8-by-10 photo of the actor jumped nearly $50 shortly after news broke of his death earlier in the day in Italy. Gandolfini was 51.

That photo sold for $261.

There was money to be made. A search of eBay and craigslist showed a variety of items -- mostly autographed photos -- marking TV shows and movies in Gandolfini's career.

On eBay, several "newly listed" items appeared late Wednesday, among them another signed photo with the description, "RIP JAMES GANDOLFINI 1961-2013."

On craigslist, a "The Sopranos" season premiere clock, labeled, "extremely rare," had been going for $25. The complete series on DVD was listed at $175. Its listing included this enticement: "Lost scenes saved from the editing room."
