Would you be willing to fork over big money for a copy of the 2008 edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer that had an on-screen cameo in the same Oscar nominated film?
Movie memorabilia from the locally-shot Philly flick is being sold by auction company Premiere Props on its site and Amazon.com and will be placed online for auction beginning March 2nd.
For $2,500 you could own the clothes Cooper’s character Pat Solatano wore at the beginning of the film when he was released from the mental hospital and was traveling home. The costume includes one pair of “Simply for Sports” thin grey sweat pants, size large; an “American Apparel” white crewneck t-shirt, size large; a “Sonoma” oatmeal v-neck large t-shirt; a “Russell Athletic” navy blue zip front hoodie size extra-large and a “Wrangler” blue denim shirt, size large.
If Cooper’s clothing is not to your movie collection’s liking, how about the on-screen copy of the 2008 Philadelphia Inquirer that was used in the film. Premiere Props website says you can own the “screen-used” paper for as little (or as much) as $129.99.
You say you need a new remote control for your television or are constantly searching for the old one? You may want to set your sights on the “Comcast TV” remote control used by Robert De Niro in the movie. But with the asking price of $500.00 you may want to keep that device in a safe spot so it never goes missing again.
The “Franklin” football that Cooper’s character “Pat” tucks under his arm when he goes from a neighborhood run is also up for sale. You can score a touchdown by dishing out $1,000 for the pigskin. Six-hundred dollars will get you the used copy of Ernest Hemingway’s “A Farewell to Arms” that was chucked by Cooper out of one of the windows of his character’s parents’ home in Delaware County in one scene in the film.
While some items are already tagged and ready for sale online, Premiere Props will stage its Hollywood Auction Extravaganza IX on March 2nd and 3rd where over one-thousand movie props and costumes will be on the block. Besides clothing and artifacts from “Silver Linings Playbook,” guns from the Oscar nominated “Django” and “Resident Evil Extinction” will be on the block for movie-buffs. Plus the hero bodysuit from “Teen Wolf” and iconic costumes from “The Big Lebowski,” “The Little Shop of Horrors,” and “X-Men” will be featured at the auction.
