Recently, while satin casino jacketeering on eBay in anticipation of the World Series of Satin Casino Jackets, I purchased an interesting little jacket that may have some historical significance. Behold.

Satin Caesars Palace Holmes vs Cooney Jacket

A Caesars Palace jacket? A dime a dozen, you say. But check out the back.

The jacket is a souvenir from the heavyweight title bout between Larry Holmes and Gerry Cooney that took place at Caesars Palace on June 11, 1982. The tag inside the jacket is imprinted with this date.

The jacket is a small, and I am double-extra lovely, so wearing it is a non-starter. But I bought it for $50, and I can't help thinking it might be worth more. It's in remarkable, mint condition, leading me to believe it's either a reproduction, or it's been stored untouched since the day it was originally purchased. On a lark, I filled out the form for selling something to the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop, located on Las Vegas Blvd., via their History Channel TV show, Pawn Stars. To my amazement, I received a reply within an hour, asking for more details. I responded with the requested information. Several hours later, they asked for pictures. I sent them pictures. I was beginning to think the Pawn Stars people thought as much of this little jacket as I do. But then, nothing. Radio silence. This has been several weeks ago, and I've heard nothing since. If you're listening, Chumlee, let's make this happen. Regardless, I hope everyone's jacketeering is going well. Can't wait to see them all at #VIMFP!
