If you’d like to own Rocky Balboa’s boxing gloves or John Rambo’s army jacket, you’re in luck. Sylvester Stallone is making iconic items from his films available to fans at an upcoming auction.
Actor, writer and director Sylvester Stallone will offer fans a chance to bid on more than a thousand costumes and props from his famous action films, including the Rocky, Rambo, and Expendables franchises. A portion of the proceeds from the auction, to be conducted by Heritage Auctions, will be donated to charities and organizations that assist veterans and wounded United States servicemen and servicewomen.
“I thought other people would really appreciate the memorabilia. So, rather than keep it all in storage I thought I should just pass everything on,” Stallone said. There will be public exhibits of selected items in Dallas, New York, Los Angeles, London, Berlin and Hong Kong this summer and early fall. 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 1976 film, Rocky, the black leather jacket he wore and his famous boxing glove pendant.
- The World Heavyweight Championship Belt he won in Rocky II, 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 jacket Stallone wore as John Rambo in First Blood.
Public previews of all the auction items will be at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, October 12 – 14, with the auction conducted there on October 14 and 15.

Anything from mr. Stallone would be great to own. He is my hero since my childhood. I bought t-shirts, that gold boxing glove, Rambo knife... If I have enough money I would buy anything from his auction. Too bad that I'm still student with only a part time jobs. At least I have his all original dvd movies and I'm really proud of that, because in my country it's kind of hard to get some of them. You are the best mr. Stallone, thank you for your inspiration
