Simon’s wife, author Laura Lippman, had advertised the auction on Twitter yesterday.
“Jimmy McNulty’s jacket from the marine unit to be auctioned tomorrow at TJEMS Fall Festival,” Lippman wrote.
The blue jacket, a photo of which accompanied the tweet, comes complete with a Baltimore Police patch and “J. McNulty” name tag. Simon confirmed via email that the jacket was part of the wardrobe on “The Wire.”
