New Star Trek Sale Starts Today December 15, 2006by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Memorabilia,Trek Franchise , trackback
If you are kicking yourself for not picking up a piece of Trek history during the Christies auction then today is your lucky day. CBS and Paramount are unloading thousands of more items from the Trek attic. The sales is being conducted by It’s A Wrap Hollywood, a memorabilia seller is handling the sale of items from all 5 series and all 10 films. The available pieces include props, wardrobe, set pieces and even a few models (but of course all the major ones were sold by Christies). "Its amazing how much cool stuff there is, stuff that they didn’t even know was there, we are finding new things all the time," Its A Wrap owner Tiara Nappi tells TrekMovie.com. Nappi says there will even be items from the Original Series (actually from the 60s and not just replicas made by ENT or DS9). Due to the enormous volume of items, the sale will be conducted over the next 6 months with new items regularly becoming available. details below
Items are being sold in two places
1. itsawraphollywood.com (fixed price items)
2. Its A Wrap Ebay Store (auction items)
Items listed at one place will not be listed at the other, so check them both. The sale will be done over the next 6 months with 100 new items put up for auction each week on Ebay (each auction lasts one week). In addition the itsawraphollywood site will have new fixed price items added continually and will maintain an inventory of about 50-75 items at any given time. The better items will most likely end up on the main website with the real bargain basement stuff on Ebay. So if you are strapped for cash, you can still own a piece of Trek history. For example, the current bid on the one of TNG’s ‘skant’ costumes (the male skirts only seen in season one) is currently $2.14. Taking a cue from the high prices from the Christies auction, some of the big items on the main website have some big numbers with them. It’s A Wrap is asking for $7000 for a 2 foot long model of a Jem Hadar ship, $10,000 for a T’Pol catsuit and a whopping $150,000 for a painting by Andy Probert. So have it at Trekkies, after this it is all gone.
This can be yours…if you are man enough
