On Nov. 30, more than 200 items of movie, music and TV collectibles will be up for grabs at the Piece of the Past Celebrity Memorabilia auction in Las Vegas, Nev.
Featuring a diverse range of goods, from Elvis-related lots to an authenticity-certified set of autographs from the Three Stooges (lot #96), this Hollywood memorabilia auction can't be missed. And for anyone who can't make it to Sin City, an accompanying online auction will be held at iCollector.com.
The wide-ranging auction will offer lots from a stunning array of entertainment industry sources. Those who still worship the King can bid on a custom silk shirt that was owned by Elvis Presley (lot #100), pick up his personal army uniform rank stripes (lot #200) or take home a 1950s-era Christmas card featuring the legend and his long-time manager Colonel Tom Parker (lot #14).
Anyone who still has an affinity for the Beat Generation might want to take a look at a bandanna that was worn by one of that era's most significant voices, Jack Kerouac (lot #115). Or, if science fiction is more of a personal favorite, there is a prop Klingon blade – or, Daqtagh, in the vernacular of that alien species' language – from Star Trek: The Original Series (lot #204).
Movie memorabilia for sale
With a new trilogy of Star Wars movies on the horizon, interest in the franchise has never been higher, and at the upcoming Piece of the Past auction there will be a couple of bits of memorabilia associated with the original episodes.
A contract signed by George Lucas in 1972 that granted Universal Pictures the right to option future movies – including what would eventually become Star Wars – after his debut film "American Graffiti" (lot #181) is on the block. And Han Solo fans will be happy to find that they can take a crack at bringing home a poster with the hero's image signed by Harrison Ford (lot #119).
Both halves of the famed pool hustling series starring Paul Newman – 1961's "The Hustler" and its follow-up from 25 years later, "The Color of Money" – will be represented at the Nov. 30 auction. The piece of memorabilia from the former is an original film still signed by Newman (lot #129), and the latter can be appreciated with a laser disc sleeve also signed by the iconic star (lot #56).
That list of items is only the beginning of the auction's inventory, and with such a diverse set of items available, collectors will be hard-pressed not to find something they desire. To check out the full range of goods, be sure to log into iCollector.com.
