On Sunday there is going to be a live Star Trek auction at the Star Trek convention (you can also participate online). The original Star Trek memorabilia comes from the collections of a number of Star Trek vets, plus there are a number of pieces from Star Trek: The Experience. PropWorx CEO Alec Peters gave TrekMovie a guided tour of the preview on display in Vegas. Check out the video below.
Star Trek auction preview
Propworx, in association with CBS Consumer Products, are holding the Star Trek auction at Creation Entertainment’s Official Star Trek Convention at the Las Vegas Hilton (on Sunday August 8th). On the auction block are original props and costumes used in the production of various Star Trek television series and movies, including props, costumes, production artwork, concept drawings, model spaceships and set décor. The auction mostly comes from the collections of Trek art and design vets Mike & Denise Okuda, Rick Sternback and Doug Drexler. PropWorx is also auctioning off a number of pieces from the former Star Trek: The Experience.
One of the interesting things about this auction is that within the over 450 lots are a wide variety of items both in terms of the Star Trek shows they were used on, and more interestingly, in price. Many items, like some original pieces from the 1960’s Star Trek will likely attract high end collectors, but there are also many unique items that will sell for less than $100, like original artwork and crew gifts.
TOS Monitor graphic estimated to sell for $10,000 – $20,000, while ENT crew gift paperweight estimated at $50-$100
Many of the items up for auction can be previewed at the convention and TrekMovie spent some time with PropWorx CEO Alec Peters, who gave us a guided tour of the auction. Watch that video here:
