Happy Days star Henry Winkler is auctioning off several props and recognizable costumes worn by the actor during his six-decade acting career, as a fundraising tool for a nonprofit started by his daughter and two friends.

Winkler has had a long acting career, but will forever be known for one iconic role: Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli, better known by his nicknames of Fonzie or “The Fonz” on Happy Days. Originally a secondary character, the avatar quickly became a fan favorite. Fans of happy days will now have a chance to take a slice of their favourite sitcom.

The auction is set to take place on November 8. The prize items that are up for grabs are the complete Fonz outfit, which includes Levi’s jeans, a white T-shirt, black engineer boots, and the iconic leather jacket that became his uniform. The package is expected to sell for between $50,000 and $80,000, according to Bonhams. The jacket is one of seven used on the show, with one now housed in the Smithsonian Institution.

Fonzie’s silver Triumph motorcycle, which was driven throughout the sitcom is expected to sell for $80,000 to $120,000.There are also scripts from the series, photos, letters, as well as items from other projects Winkler did over the years up for sale.

Winkler’s daughter’s charity helps separated and recently reunited families at the US border. The actor took to Twitter to promote the products. ‘Letting a physical thing go doesn’t, in any way, diminish the enormity of the experience.’ said Winkler.
