In the original Rocky, Paulie got $3,000 for Rocky to put the logo of the meat-packing place he worked at, Shamrock Meats, on the robe Rocky wears.  What is believed to be that same robe is headed to the Smithsonian.

Rocky Balboa's boxing robe and gloves will share the same home as
Dorothy's ruby red slippers, Abraham Lincoln's top hat and Thomas
Edison's light bulb.

Actor and director Sylvester Stallone Tuesday donated memorabilia
from his "Rocky" movies to the Smithsonian's National Museum of
American History.

"I knew I was getting old, but I didn't think I would be with the
dinosaurs so soon," Stallone said, laughing. "No, actually, I'm really
unbelievably overwhelmed."

Stallone, 60, wore the red and yellow boxing robe in 1976's "Rocky."
He also donated a black hat and a pair of autographed boxing gloves
from "Rocky II" and shoes and his red, white and blue boxing shorts
from "Rocky III."
