A Perfectly Cromulent Gift

After The Simpsons conquered Hollywood, celebrities were lining up to lend their voices to the show. Over time, The Simpsons have hosted an enviable cavalcade of stars- three of the four Beatles (Yoko Ono has commented that if John had still been with us he would have certainly made it four out of four) Bette Midler, Elizabeth Taylor, Danny DeVito, the Rolling Stones, and over a hundred more. In addition to the accolades and prestige of appearing on the show, guest stars also get a special gift from the show- a custom made lettermans jacket!

Emblazoned with patches representing several characters from the show, this drool worthy jacket is only produced for the show and is extremely drool-worthy. Certainly every Simpsons fan would welcome this rare item into their collection.

This particular jacket was made for co-creator Sam Simon, who auctioned it off for charity. Mr. Simon passed away, leaving all of his fortune (estimated to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars) to various animal charities.
