Keith Olbermann's Personal ESPN Leather Jacket
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $480
Though it is far from the most expensive, this lot is in many ways one of the most important in the entire REA auction. It is not only a fascinating modern relic of pop culture with ideal provenance, but is being offered to raise money and awareness for a worthy cause. Presented is a red-and-black leather ESPN jacket exclusively made for, and worn by, former ESPN anchorman Keith Olbermann. This is a 1993-94 prototype jacket that is made with lighter leather and may be unique. The black leather jacket, with red accents, features the the "ESPN" logo on both the left breast and reverse.
Of special note, the jacket's provenance is impeccable: it has been consigned directly by Keith Olbermann! At the direction of Keith Olbermann, who is hoping this personal keepsake will find a good home and at the same time provide for a good cause, the entire auction proceeds including buyer's premium for this lot is being donated to From The Heart, a last-chance dog shelter in El Paso, which takes in all the dogs (and cats) that are to be euthanized by the other shelters (website: http://www.fthar.org). REA is honored to help spread the word about this great organization. The winning bidder for this lot will be asked to make the tax-deductible check out directly to "From The Heart." The jacket (size "XXL"), manufactured by Leather up, displays light wear. In Excellent condition overall.
Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $480
