All Rocky and Rambo fans indeed have a reason to rejoice. More than a thousand iconic costumes and props from Sylvester Stallone’s famous action films (“Rocky,” “Rambo,” and “The Expendables”) will be offered at auction, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting military charities. The auction will be held live and online by Heritage in Los Angeles on October 14 and 15, 2015.
Among the items that will be offered are:
From the Academy-Award winning 1976 film, “Rocky,” the black leather jacket he wore in his role as Rocky Balboa and Rocky Marciano’s boxing glove pendant trainer Mickey Goodmill (actor Burgess Meredith) gave to Rocky.
The boxing gloves Stallone used as Rocky and the World Heavyweight Championship Belt he won in “Rocky II” in 1979, and Rocky’s “tiger” jacket worn in that film.
Rocky’s boxing trunks from the match against Clubber Lang (Mr. T) in the 1982 movie, “Rocky III.”
Stallone’s screen worn, white “Balboa” boxing robe from the 1985 film, “Rocky IV.”
A U.S. Army flag patch jacket Stallone wore as John Rambo in 1982 in the first film in the Rambo series, “First Blood.”
Fans can also bid on costumes and props used by Stallone in “Judge Dredd” (1995), the recent “The Expendables” movies and Rocky’s Harley Davidson motorcycle that appeared in both “Rocky III” and “Rocky V” (1990).
Public previews of all the auction items will be at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, October 12 – 14.
