A number of sweaters Bill Cosby wore on his hit “The Cosby Show” will be auctioned off on eBay for charity. Cosby’s daughter Erin unearthed the sweaters while cleaning out a closet.
The charity in question is the Hello Friend/Ennis William Cosby Foundation, which benefits educational programs and was started in the name of Cosby’s late son. It will be held from June 2-12 — just in time for Father’s Day.
“The Cosby Show” aired from 1984 to 1992, and the star’s colorfully-patterned sweaters were instantly recognizable. To me, they are as essential part pop-culture Americana as the Fonz’s leather jacket or the Cheers bar.
