WWII Flight Jacket

Post by CRAZYBUBBA » Fri Jan 08, 2010 10:25 pm

Hey guys. I'm a bit conflicted about what to do with this jacket.

It's a little tight on me now and I've been thinking about buying a Michael Jacksoneque display case for it or selling it, but I don't want to let it go for too little since it's pretty special (to me at least).

It looks like prices are all over the board and these don't do too well on the auction block.

Your input would help save me some time.

Here are some pics:

I would be surprised if that didn't do well on the block...what are they fetching? But if that fit me I would keep it. Sorry, I'm no help...hehe

Well to be honest, all the ones on ebay are either repros or later editions and a reproduction of this one went for $550. So, it's kind of hard for me to gague the going value for this.

You could always put it up as a GTC (good till canceled) listing, asking a high price ($1500?) with an option for best offer.
