Some people may know Sylvester Stallone as the man from Rocky or Rambo. The famous actor is one of the more well-known figures of our time, even as he keeps aging. But he was never more famous than when he was starring in the Rocky movies.
With that being said, memorabilia from any of his movies can cost a pretty penny, especially when it comes from the man himself. Knowing this, Stallone decided to put over 1,400 props and items from his film career up for auction. Stallone is donating some of the money made to charities that support U.S. veterans and wounded servicemen. What a guy.
ESPN.com's Arash Markazi tweeted out many of the items up for sale:
