Reynolds Rap

A Very Burt Reynolds Auction

We’re not sure why Burt Reynolds is parting with a bunch of his personal effects in the Property from the Life and Career of Burt Reynolds auction, but that’s not the point. The point is: he is. You have until next Friday to bid. In the meantime: six of those effects worth considering...

His Smokey and the Bandit II Jacket
