Maverick’s Helmet From Top Gun Is Hitting The Auction Block

Sit down for this one, fellas. Because if you’re anything like me, you might actually blackout. An entire array of Hollywood memorabilia is set to be auctioned – and among them is none other than Maverick’s helmet from Top Gun.

Worn by Tom Cruise himself – who portrayed fighter pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in the original 1986 film – just imagine what you could do with this god-tier piece of kit; what it could soon be within your everyday life. The hottest sesh helmet around, the ultimate mantlepiece flex, history’s greatest popcorn bowl – there are no limits.

How much will this cost? Estimates have placed it at a value between US$50,000 and US$70,000. But keep in mind this is an auction – meaning a hearty round of bidding may drive the price up. Best fire up that group chat to rally the troops for a collective investment.
