Sylvester Stallone is downsizing, so some of his collectables are headed for auction
From Rocky boxing gloves to Rambo headbands, memorabilia from action movie star Sylvester Stallone’s Hollywood career are going under the hammer in a December auction expected to raise about $1.5m (R21.4m).
Nearly 500 items from Stallone’s personal archives are being sold, including costumes, props, scripts, notebooks and other memorabilia from the actor’s biggest films, including the Rocky and Rambo franchises, Cliffhanger, The Expendables and Demolition Man, Julien’s Auctions said on Tuesday.
Highlights include Stallone’s boxing gloves from Rocky III, with an estimate of $10,000 to $20,000 (R142,500 to R285,000), as well as handwritten notebooks about the first four Rocky films, priced at $40,000 to $60,000 (R570,000 to R855,000)...
