Trek Auction Begins With Some Big Money [updated] October 5, 2006

by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: CBS/Paramount,Memorabilia,Trek Franchise , comments closed

The auctioning of Trek’s history has begun and boy did Christies underestimate their prices. Not a single item has gone for anything close to their original estimates. For example: two empty Chateau Picard wine bottles (from Nemesis) were estimated to go for $700, in the end they went for $5500…for two empty wine bottles!. Christies and CBS Paramount had made around $250,000 off just the first 50 lots (out of 1000) which was at least double what they were estimating.Other highlights from the first 50 lots (note auction started with TNG films)

Enterprise E Captains Chair: $52,000 (est. $9k)
Enterprise E Blueprints: $2,400 (est. $600)
Picards Sextent
:  $5,500 (est. $300)
Ent-E Dedication Plate
: $7,000 (est. $600)
Ent-E Engineering Table: $13,000 (est. $1200)
