Bud Melman. Rupert Jee. Dave's Mom. Kenny Sheehan. All got their 15 minutes of fame—and then some!—through seemingly random cameos with David Letterman. Sheehan, a Late Show stagehand known for his stoicism and dangling cigarette, would come on air with crew colleague Pat Farmer to read Oprah Winfrey interview transcripts. Other Sheehan bits included "Stagehand Stories," "Stagehand Fantasies," "CBS Mailbag," and "Pat and Kenny Boxing." He was even an extra on Spin City, Cosby, Guiding Light and The People's Court. There are many YouTube video clips of, and references to, Sheehan's Letterman appearances. And his cult status landed him the #7 slot on Rolling Stone's Top 10 Letterman Sidekicks list. Now we're pleased to present Kenny Sheehan's personal collection of Late Show staff swag and mementos, including clothes, bags, scripts, VIP passes, staff photos, even cue cards.
What more apropos style of Letterman jacket could there be than a letterman's jacket?! These classic varsity garments are all size medium and would command hundreds of dollars—if not a thousand plus—if they were sold individually. So to see them offered at auction in one fell swoop like this is a rare treat that may not come around again. Condition is never-worn NM.
