Just a few days ago, somebody bought some of David Bowie’s hair in an auction for upwards of $18,000. In that same auction, Prince’s Yellow Cloud guitar also sold for $137,500, but for superfans who missed out on their shot at rare Prince memorabilia the first time, no need to worry: The motorcycle jacket he wore in the Purple Rain movie will soon be up for auction on eBay.
The good news is that if you have $6,000, you can possibly get your foot in the door, because that’s the starting bid on the jacket, but if you’re a bit more budget-conscious, the signature ruffled dress shirt that he also wore in the movie has a starting bid of a reasonable $3,000.
The items are listed as part of eBay’s Hollywood Auction 83, and it actually has some pretty cool items aside from the Prince stuff, like a prop Apollo Creed button from Rocky II, an original Star Wars script, a screen-used animatronic alien egg from Aliens, and a bunch of other neat things. Whatever it is you choose to geek out over, this auction has you covered, provided you also have some extremely deep pockets.
Check out the complete item listings here, and just be aware that if you are trying to throw your hat in the ring for any of these items, you have to register to bid, so get your ducks in a row and don’t miss out because of a technicality. We haven’t had the time to completely browse the listings, so let us know in the comments if you spot any hidden gems up for auction.
