The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT - BY SANDY CO­HEN

“Rambo” and “Rocky” fans no longer have to fight Sylvester Stal­lone for a piece of those movies’ mem­o­ra­bilia.

Stal­lone an­nounced Thurs­day he’s putting hun­dreds of props and cos­tumes from his per­sonal col­lec­tion up for auc­tion in Oc­to­ber, with a por­tion of the pro­ceeds ben­e­fit­ing mil­i­tary char­i­ties.

A re­cent auc­tion of John Wayne mem­o­ra­bilia inspired Stal­lone to part with some of his movie pos­ses­sions while he’s still alive to see peo­ple en­joy them. The up­com­ing auc­tion will in­clude items such as Rambo’s knife and Rocky’s box­ing gloves.

Stal­lone plans to do­nate some auc­tion pro­ceeds to help mil­i­tary ser­vice mem­bers “to pay back the real peo­ple that have supplied the in­spi­ra­tion for the char­ac­ters I’ve played.” 8:30 a.m. Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match­play, Round of 64 From Aberdeen, Scot­land.
