Outrageously priced vintage wrestling item of the week: The Ultimate Warrior’s duster

Who didn’t want to dress up as the Ultimate Warrior as a kid? How about as an adult? Eh, no one?

For the little (and big) Warriors still living the dream there’s this eBay auction of an autographed Warrior duster. This appears to be from Warrior’s stint in WCW (note the tombstone with “NWO” on it). Could this be Warrior’s cloak of invisibility that allowed him to magically appear in Hulk Hogan’s mirror on the October 5, 1998, edition of Nitro? I can’t tell from the video (after the jump). 

The duster is on sale (25 percent off!) for the next seven days and can be had for $5,624.99 (regular price $7,499.99).

Outrageously priced vintage wrestling item of the week: The Smoking Gunns’ 1995 foam cowboy hat

Love those horse-riding Gunn boys? For just $220 (plus $13.17 shipping), you can show your appreciation for Billy and Bart with the cowboy hat in the picture. But you better act quick, this eBay auction expires in a little more than 16 hours. The hat is listed as a “buy it now or best offer,” and it looks like two offers have already been rejected.

Don West probably couldn’t sell someone on this deal — and that guy could sell anything.

This is a “handy dupont cordura nylon tote” was featured in the 1986-87 WWF Merchandise Catalog — way before it was cool to bring your own bag to the store.
Bonus: It was “made in the USA.”
