Get your very own Cosby sweater

Bill Cosby and Phylicia RashadI love Cosby sweaters--those loud, patterned fashion monstrosities that look good on no one. Bill Cosby is auctioning off three sweaters from his days as Heathcliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Proceeds from the eBay auction will benefit Hello Friend/The Ennis William Cosby Foundation, which supports education. Cosby started the foundation in 1997 to honor his son's memory.

The auction will run from June 2 to June 18, with opening bids starting at $5,000 per hideous sweater. It's all for a good cause, though. Hello Friend donates books to underfunded schools and helps train teachers, among other things. Ennis Cosby was studying to be a teacher at the time of his death, and his family wanted to continue his work.

I wonder how high the bids will go? Will the highest bidders be interested in the sweaters themselves, or will they buy them out of support for the foundation? I'm very curious to see how this auction turns out, and I'll be keeping an eye on it this June. I've seen the sweaters in question, and they are trademark Cosby sweaters--polka dots, squiggly lines, geometric shapes, etc. What's not to love?

I wonder if you buy it, if they'll throw in some Jell-O pudding pops?
