Alright, fellas. Let’s try this one again. If you missed out on copping Maverick’s helmet from Top Gun earlier this year, here’s your chance to cop yet another bit of primo Top Gun-related memorabilia: Maverick’s original bomber jacket.
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 conversation starter around, the ultimate Halloween flex – there are no limits.
Where Maverick’s helmet was valued between US$50,000 and US$70,000, Maverick’s bomber jacket is currently valued between US$15,000 and US$21,000. But – again – keep in mind this is an auction, meaning enthusiastic bidding will likely drive that price up. Like we’ve previously suggested, best fire up that group chat to rally the troops for a collective investment and maybe work out a timeshare situation.
Other hot-ticket items available include:
- James Bond’s MI6 Training Outfit from Skyfall: US$19,000 – US$26,000
- Obi-Wan Kenobi’s lightsaber from Revenge of the Sith: US$103,000 – us$155,000
- Neo’s complete outfit from The Matrix: Reloaded: US$52,000 – US$78,000
The auction in question will be hosted by Los Angeles-London operation Prop Store from December 1st to 2nd online.
