When I first started writing this blog, I promised to keep you updated on some of the weird and wonderful items that cross my desk. The staff and management of ROYAL CITY JEWELLERS & LOANS LTD. are always on the lookout for just such items.
Recently a pair of original ‘ Rocky’ Lifespar boxing gloves was brought to my attention. These gloves are hand signed by Sylvester Stallone and come with a certificate of authenticity.
You may remember, ‘Rocky’ was the 1976 Oscar winner for Best Picture and is still considered one of the most inspirational movies of all time. Rocky Balboa’s rise from the gritty gyms of Philadelphia to his climatic title fight with champ Apollo Creed has become an iconic root-for-the- underdog story.
These original hand signed “Rocky” Boxing Gloves with its certificate of authenticity would make a great keapsake for any Rocky fan.
