As discussed on the ALL NEW Christmas RD & Blade Show, you could’ve bought Burt Reynolds’ WWF The Islanders jacket.

I’m sure it doesn’t surprise you that R.D’s Uncle Burt is a wrestling fan- who do you think took young R.D to his first wrestling show as a wee tot?

The jacket sold for over $800!

They describe the fine garment thusley:

A black satin jacket embroidered “Burt” in yellow stitching at right breast and the “WWF” logo embroidered at left. The back is embroidered with an image of two palm trees and reads “The Islanders.” The Islanders was a professional wrestling tag team. Size extra large. The jacket was part of Burt Reynolds’ personal wardrobe.

By wrestling apparel standards, it’s pretty nice!

Does come with palm trees as illustrated.

  1. Sean Bateman says:

    That jacket should have gone to RD!

    • Thomas says:

      You can just picture RD, gazing at the jacket in a protective display case, saying quietly to himself, “Don’t worry, Uncle Burt, it’s safe now.”

  2. One day when the actual Wrestlecrap Hall of Shame building opens, this will be front and center when you walk in, next to the Katie Vick outfit.
