Rocky and Rambo Coming to Auction

Stallone's screen worn,  white "Balboa" boxing robe  from 1985's "Rocky IV."One of the biggest movie stars of the world, actor, writer and director Sylvester Stallone — the only actor with the distinction of opening a number one film across five decades — will offer fans a chance to bid on more than a thousand iconic costumes and props from his famous action films, including the “Rocky,” “Rambo,” and “The 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.

Regarding his consigned items, Stallone said: “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,” he explained in an interview for the Fall 2015 issue of Heritage’s The Intelligent Collector magazine.

Rocky's boxing trunks from the first match against Clubber Lang  (Mr. T) in 1982's "Rocky III."There will be public exhibits in Dallas, New York, Los Angeles, London, Berlin and Hong Kong this summer and early fall of selected items consigned by Stallone. The auction will be held live and online by Heritage in Los Angeles on October 14 and 15, 2015.

“There are more than 1,400 props, costumes and personal items consigned by Mr. Stallone that will be available to his fans worldwide. He is an international superstar, and these items include some of the iconic, cultural symbols of clothing and props from his most famous and loved action films, the ‘Rocky’ and ‘Rambo’ series,” said Greg Rohan, President of Heritage Auctions.

Items include:

  • 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.”
