At the City Room blog today, Aidan Gardiner notes that some Ramones paraphernalia, including Marky's leather jacket, is up for grabs in an online auction at RR Auction.
Per the auction site:
Marky’s iconic leather jacket, stage-worn from 1978 to 1983
Marky Ramone’s owned and stage-used jacket. Black leather jacket by Real Leather, New York–London, was used on stage between 1978–1983, features two US pins on the lapels, a single star pin to each shoulder, zip-up cuffs and a buckle at the waist. Jacket is signed on the back in gold ink “Marky Ramone.” In fine condition, with expected wear from stage use. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity ... bearing the printed signature of Marky Ramone.
Current price: $3,146.
An RR rep told Gardiner that the jacket has been "well maintained and bore no scent of stage sweat." And presumably, no scent of pasta sauce.
Caution! The folks at the City Room are now reporting that Marky is calling bullshit on this one. Marky says that the jacket is not his! Read the rest at City Room.
