LOS ANGELES (AP) — An auction of Sylvester Stallone’s black leather “Rocky” jacket and other movie memorabilia has earned more than $3 million.
Heritage Auctions President Greg Rohan says Stallone’s leather jacket was the top item sold at the three-day auction, with a winning bid of $149,000. A poncho worn by Stallone in the first “Rambo” film fetched $60,000 in a sale that featured boxing trunks and gloves, and other items from the actor-director’s storied career.
Portions of the proceeds will benefit military charities.
Stallone attended the auction’s first day and mingled with fans.
