This jacket was worn by the character "Axel Foley," portrayed by actor/comedian Eddie Murphy, in the 1987 motion picture, "Beverly Hills Cop 2." The letterman jacket is complete with various Detroit Lions patches, emblems, and embroidered stitching. Four of these jackets were custom made for Mr. Murphy and the original design was the costume supervisor's actual high school letterman jacket used in the first Beverly Hills cop.
Mr. Murphy can be seen wearing this jacket throughout most of the film. "Beverly Hills Cop 2," starring Eddie Murphy, Judge Reinhold, John Ashton, Brigitte Nielsen, and Jurgen Prochnow, was nominated for an Academy Awards and a Golden Globe award. It was a box office success, much like the original, and had the highest opening weekend debut in 1987.
The jacket is in excellent screen worn condition and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house. Presented by The Golden Closet, your premier source for iconic screen used movie wardrobe, props, and music entertainment memorabilia.
