You've got until just after 4:30 p.m. today if you're going to be picking up the ultimate Philly knick-knack: the Rocky statue.
Your very own, limited-edition version of the triumphant boxer -- the very icon that stood arms-raised on the Philadelphia Museum of Art steps before people with different sensibilities had it trucked off to the Spectrum -- is up for auction on eBay. Bidding starts at $1 million for the 10-foot-tall fighter. The beauty part: it's tax deductible.
Would look great in the living room. Impressive on the front steps. Strange in the bedroom.
If you're getting a little deja vu from this, it's not the first time Harvey Abrams has tried to move the mook. Abrams, South Philly native and director of the would-be International Institute for Sport and Olympic History in State College, PA, offered it up auction on eBay last year as well. The $3 million winning bid turned out to be bogus.
