Henry Winkler selling Fonzie memorabilia
Fonzie's jacket, jeans and motorbike are all going under the hammer.
Yeah but can we buy the shark Fonzie jumped over?
Former Happy Days actor Henry Winkler is auctioning off a load of ‘Fonzie’ memorabilia as a fundraiser for a nonprofit cause started by his daughter and two friends.
Expected to be on auction are the complete Fonz outfit, which includes the Levi’s jeans, white T-shirt, black engineer boots and, of course, the iconic leather jacket that became his uniform. The package is expected to sell for between $US50,000 and $US80,000.
The jacket is one of seven used on the show, with one now housed in the Smithsonian Institution.
The silver Triumph motorcycle the Fonz rode is expected to sell for $US80,000 to $US120,000.
You can also buy the Fonz’s mechanic coveralls and other memorabilia, including scripts, photos, and letters.
“I never will say goodbye because it is always in my heart and always in my mind. It was the show that threw me out into the world and I will always be grateful,” Winkler said. “Letting a physical thing go doesn’t, in any way, diminish the enormity of the experience.”
The charity assists separated and recently reunited families at the US border.
