Does anyone remember Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable? Of course you do! He was the character played by Bill Cosby in The Cosby Show back in the 80s and 90s. And now you have the chance to relive that period of your life – and let’s face it, the 80s and 90s rocked – by buying some of Dr. Huxtable’s original costumes.
Some of Cosby’s legendary patterned sweaters that he wore in the long-running television hit will be auctioned off next month to benefit a charity set up in memory of the actor’s late son, and – OK, they may make you look like your Dad – the price is expected to be high, with opening bids starting at $5,000.
Proceeds will go to the Hello Friend/Ennis William Cosby Foundation, an education charity established in 1997 by the Cosby family to continue the legacy of Cosby’s son Ennis after his murder in Los Angeles.
“My mother and father were going through a storage closet, and I happened to be there and pounced on these sweaters,” explained Evin Cosby, who is a board member of Hello Friend. “I told them that the price of what some of these sweaters might sell for could make a big difference in the lives of thousands of children.”
The auction runs from June 2-12, and can be accessed via www.ebay.com/cosby.
