Yesterday, these three sweaters worn by Bill Cosby on The Cosby Show went up for auction on eBay. The bidding started at $5,000 for each sweater. The money raised will benefit an education charity set up in the honor of Cosby’s late son, Ennis. We checked in on the bidding at eBay, and the results just might shock you: No one has bid on any of them! As you can see, they’re a remarkable lot. The one in the middle is like the Saved by the Bell theme song in knitted form. The one on the left wears a scarf so you don’t have to, and the darker one on the right would be great for evening. So we’re rather surprised there are no bids. Does no one see the $5,000 value in hanging such a glorious piece of the eighties in his closet? Does no one have ugly-sweater parties anymore? Are you not dressing up for Halloween?
You have until June 12 to bid and make the remaining days of the auction a little less painful.
