Supernatural Fans?

I'm curious because I've never seen the show, but lately, I've been cleaning out my closet. I came across a bunch of old jackets that I either never or barely wore. I'm an impulse shopper. If I see something I want, I just buy it. Bad I know. Anyways, I had this military style green Gap jacket that I probably paid around $98.00 for brand new a couple of years back. I'm not sure I even wore it. Maybe once or twice. So I put it on Ebay expecting about $50.00 for it which is better than having it sit in my closet. A day went by and I started getting crazy offers for this jacket. People were messaging me with offers for $150-$200. I thought it was a joke but since people already started bidding on it, I just told them it wouldn't be fair to the highest bidder. Minutes before the auction ended, it was at $58.00, which I was happy with. I checked again after it was over and it had jumped to $255.00! I was so curious and scared that I listed it wrong or something that I emailed the winning bidder, who paid right away. He said that is the near identical jacket that Dean Winchester wore on the show. I've never seen the show nor did I know what he was talking about, but apparently, the jacket is pretty hard to come by since its an older style and there are a lot of sellers saying "Dean Winchester Gap Jacket" but aren't even close. Are there people that fanatical about this show? I remember when I was a nut for 24 and I wanted that Jack Bauer military jacket so bad, I probably would of paid a crazy number as well. Glad I never found one.

i absolutely love this show...idk its very very interesting and funny to me. I just learned that the show is actually fillmed in Canada. For a while, I just watched reruns faithfully on TNT but just discovered it comes on on the CW network. I even downloaded the CW app on my phone dedicated a WHOLE day of catching up...you should REALLY watch it. They have a HUGE fan base.

I heard he wears this jacket about 70% of the time. Its a tad different, but its pretty darn close. The actual color is closer to the actual jacket.

I loved the show, but I'm a few seasons behind now. I can't believe people went that crazy over the jacket! Too bad I don't have a few of those stashed away!

I looked around and its a pretty darn hard jacket to find. Who knew. I guess I had a treasure in my closet without even knowing, but I know how the buyer feels. I remember when Burn Notice first came out and I just had to have the sunglasses that the main character (Michael Westen) wears which are a pair of Oliver People Victory 55 in a Cognac lens. Its a signature piece on the show and through 5 seasons, he's still wearing them. A few years back, there was a big hoopla over them and I had to overpay by about $300.00 just to get my hands on a pair as bidders were going nuts over them. The sad part is, I was in Vegas a year later and lost them. LOL.. I can't afford to shell out another $400 for this pair..

I guess i am a pretty lame fan cause I know Dean lives in that jacket, but never paid a lot of attention to the details of it. Congrats on that sale, You made some brother/sister fan very happy and no, it wasn't me.

Well, I wake up, walk my dogs, eat and watch Supernatural and Prison Break. Haha..That makes me a lame fan too !!
This guy, Dean (Ackles) literally lives in that jacket and the impala...when he's not on the road or the motels..So, yeah, people like me would want that jacket real bad.
Great if you sold it!
