"As always, we try to have a wide variety of items that will appeal to fans of all the different TV shows as well as for every budget." said Propworx CEO Alec Peters. "This auction we are pleased to offer Celeste Yarnel’s TOS Red uniform mini-dress she wore as Lt. Martha Landon in "The Apple". It comes with a set of TOS boots, TOS boots are incredibly hard to find. We also have the original matte painting of Starbase 11 from "The Menagerie". It is the most significant matte painting to come to auction from TOS and we expect it to close over $ 10,000."
But the auction is not just for high end collectors. "There are dozens of items in the $ 100-200 range as well" said Peters. "We know that there are a lot of Star Trek fans who can’t afford the expensive items, but still want a piece of their favorite show. So we always try to have 10-20% of our auction with items that the average fan can afford."
