'Brokeback' auction shirts net $101,100
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Shirts worn by the stars of "Brokeback Mountain" have sold for $101,100 in a charity auction on eBay.
The shirts worn by Jake Gyllenhall and Heath Ledger, "dirty from sweat and blood" and tucked one inside the other on a hanger, started at a bid of $9.99, The New York Times reported.
Los Angeles collector Tom Gregory had the final winning bid Monday night for the shirts in The Variety Children's Charity Auction.
"It's a great prop; it's the ruby slippers of our time," Gregory told the Times. "It represents the love that would never go away no matter how much the world tried to push it away."
"Brokeback Mountain" is nominated for eight Academy Awards.
