A chance to own a piece of Breaking Bad history has arrived for big fans of the show with a few dollars to spend. Propstore is auctioning off a handful of screen-used props from the iconic AMC series, and perhaps the most notable is the underwear worn owned by Walter White (Bryan Cranston) in the show. The undies had been estimated to fetch up to $5,000 in the auction, but with just under two weeks still left to go, it's already at $4,500 as of this writing, likely to surpass its estimate as bids continue to come in.
According to the listing, his particular pair of underpants is a set decoration "closet" pair, appearing in the character's closet throughout the series. It's described as cotton and polyester briefs, sized at 40 inches, with an elastic waistband with blue and goldenrod details. However, the elasticity is "largely lost," so the underpants are probably more ideal to be displayed than worn.
Other items are also up for grabs from Breaking Bad. This includes Walter's safety goggles and respirator he took home from his classroom, estimated to go up to $6,000; an uninscribed copy of Walter's Leaves of Grass book, estimated for up to $5,000; Jesse Pinkman's (Aaron Paul) cell phone paired with Skyler White's (Anna Gunn) cigarette packs, estimated for up to $3,000; Jesse Pinkman's bong, estimated for up to $1,200; Walter White's white T-shirt, estimated for up to $1,000; and a yellow radio-controlled toy car seen in the show, valued at up to $1,000. "Props" and "Guest" chairbacks from the set's chairs are also up for auction, estimated to go for up to $1,000.

The stars of Breaking Bad were back on the small screen on Sunday for the premiere of the PopCorners Super Bowl ad. Along with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, the ad brought back Raymond Cruz as Tuco Salamanca with the trio reenacting scenes from the show. This comes a decade after Breaking Bad had ended its run in 2013, as despite the series having since been long finished, it continues to maintain its popularity with fans.
Last year, Cranston and Paul were also seen reprising their roles as Walt and Jesse in the final season of Better Call Saul. Premiering on AMC in 2015, Better Call Saul served as a prequel to Breaking Bad and ended its own six-season run in 2022. Walt and Jesse had not appeared until the very last season. Cranston has since suggested that the Super Bowl ad, which you can watch below, is likely his final appearance as Walter White.
