Like most children of the '80s, Bill Cosby has always held a special place in my heart. Whether hanging with the Huxtables or enjoying some Jello pudding, Mr. Cosby played an integral part in my development, which is why I was particularly touched when I discovered these sweaters up for auction. Each sweater was actually worn by Bill Cosby on "The Cosby Show" and is being auctioned off for charity with a starting price of $5,000. It's a way to own a piece of television history and wear that warm fuzzy Cosby/Huxtable feeling with you all the time. Hopefully you can pull of that ironic flashy '80s grandpa look.
The sweaters were worn by Mr. Huxtable on episodes between seasons three-eight. and each comes with a hand-signed letter from Mr. Cosby himself as well as an additional letter from the sweater designer, Koos Van Den Akker, validating that these are the real thing. The best part is all the profits go to the Hello Friend/Ennis William Cosby Foundation which equips teachers, parents and students with the practical information and educational tools needed to understand and address the needs of all learners before they experience the corrosive effects of frustration and failure.
