For the forthcoming sequel, Top Gun Maverick, Cruise switched to the modern HGU-55 helmet, featuring the same iconic stenciling and color design. A number of companies offer replica versions of both of these helmets, but this auction features the real deal. The helmet is expected to fetch around $50,000, but these estimates are often far below where the final bidding ends up.
So, if you want an ultimate piece of Top Gun memorabilia in your home, or just want to go grocery shopping during the pandemic in style, this auction is not one to miss.
