The checks are about to start rolling in for Gary Coleman. The bid for his autographed Gap Athletic pants made it up to $400,000:
Bidding on eBay reached $400,000 on Thursday for a pair of navy blue, size 12XL-Regular Gap Kids sweatpants signed by the former child star. Yes, $400,000. And it could get higher still. The auction wasn’t set to close until later Thursday. On the Jan. 10 Jimmel Kimmel Live, three days after the Coleman auction commenced, Kimmel expressed his deepest desire for the pants, and placed a bid of about $80. Later that night, bids cracked the three-figure mark. Four minutes after that, they cracked the four-figure mark. Five days later, on Jan. 15, the first apparently legit $100,000-plus bid was placed.
Legit 400K bids? Ooooooh Gary is about to come up for real. Good for him. This makes us feel better, since he really was about to become the poster child of “When The Checks Stop Coming In”
