A leather boxer's protector, worn by Crowe when he played heavyweight champion James J. Braddock in the 2005 movie "Cinderella Man", estimated to bring between AU$500 and AU$600, sold for AU$7,000 after intense bidding.
Crowe tweeted after the five-hour auction that he had earned 3.7 million Australian dollars, with potential sales worth AU$350,000 still under negotiation.

Various jewelry gifted to Spencer also underwhelmed, namely a ring featuring a 5.13-carat radiant-cut fancy yellow diamond surrounded by marquise-cut white diamonds expected to fetch between $70,000 and $100,000 AUD and ultimately failing to meet its reserve.

Given the popularity of movie memorabilia-and Crowe's own star power-the auction will surely be a success. Still, it's an open question as to whether his celebrity can induce someone to spend up to A$140,000 on a violin used by Crowe in Master and Commander.
