“New” at 80s Tees this week: the original Cobra Kai karate gi worn by Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) in 1984′s The Karate Kid!

The price, you ask? A cool $100,000! (It’s not exactly high fashion, but you would have a trump card come Halloween…)

More about the garment, from the product’s official descrip:

This Cobra Kai gi was worn by William Zabka’s character Johnny Lawrence during filming of the 1984 movie The Karate Kid. We obtained the gi on eBay from a collector who purchased the gi from ReelClothes.com. The gi comes with a framed Certificate of Authenticity from ReelClothes.

Kevin Stecko, the founder of 80sTees.com bought the gi because he always wanted to wear an authentic Cobra Kai gi for Halloween. We used this gi to create copies which we sell as our Exclusive Movie Quality Cobra Kai Costume.

As you may be guessing by the price our goal is not really to sell the gi as much as it is to put it out there for the world to appreciate. The Karate Kid is Kevin’s favorite movie of all time and he wanted other fans to be able to see this amazing piece of 80s movie history.
