Borough President Marty Markowitz's final term in office runs out this year -- but before he goes, he's going to auction off his trove of office swag, reports the New York Daily News.

From a slab of wood from the original Coney Island Boardwalk to sports jerseys and local hooch, the BP says he's going to donate the money to his Camp Brooklyn charity.

Markowitz -- who earns $160,000 as Borough President -- told the New York Post in September that he's not interested in running for Mayor -- or any other political post.

The current frontrunner in the Beep race is Prospect Heights state Sen. and former cop Eric Adams, according to the Brooklyn Paper.
