    Description

    Worn to claim first Intercontinental title with victory over Carlito in 2005!

    2002-12 Ric Flair Match Worn & Signed Robe with Multiple Photo Matches.
    Widely regarded as the greatest professional wrestler of all time, Flair is officially recognized by the WWE and Pro Wrestling Illustrated as a sixteen-time World Champion, although some sources credit him with as many as twenty-five. His career spanned generations, ending with his official retirement on December 3, 2012, just a week short of forty years to the day since his professional debut.

    This outrageously flamboyant robe is found in countless photographs and videos from the final decade of that storied career, a dizzying blend of silk, feathers, rhinestones and sequins. His immortal "Nature Boy" nickname shimmers at the shoulder blades, and interior lining bears a lengthy silver sharpie inscription, which reads,

    "I'm a limousine ridin, jet flying, kiss stealin, wheelin dealin son of a gun, Wooooo! And in order to be the man! You have to beat the man! Nature Boy Ric Flair, 16X, WWE HOF 08-12, My personal worn Olivia Walker robe!"

    Flair was quoted in his recent autobiography, "Second Nature: The Legacy of Ric Flair and the Rise of Charlotte," that his robes "cost $10,000 a pop," with an estimated cost of around $30,000 today. In a decade of action, this particular example appeared hundreds of times, including:

    Victory over Carlito to win the Intercontinental title for the first time on June 29, 2005 at Unforgiven.

    His first and only tables, ladders and chairs match (vs. the Edge) on Raw on January 16, 2006, in Charlotte, NC.

    Multiple appearances during his epic feuds vs. Triple H and Mick Foley in the WWE.

    Multiple appearances leading up to his WWE retirement match at Wrestlemania 24 vs. Shawn Michaels.

    Match vs. Hulk Hogan when he came out of retirement on the Australia tour in November 2009.

    Multiple appearances during his final wrestling matches ever in TNA vs. Sting in October 2011.

    The interior lining of the robe is faded from the salinity of Flair's sweat but otherwise the garment presents marvelously, and will be a true showpiece when displayed on a full-sized mannequin. Unquestionably one of the most significant professional wrestling collectibles ever presented at auction. Full LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). Full LOA from SGC Authentic (autograph).
