Owning a piece of Hollywood memorabilia is big business and even the smallest item from a classic film can raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for a seller.
From Wednesday until Thursday, October 1, the website Invaluable is auctioning off hundreds of items from movies like “Lord of The Rings,” “The Hunger Games,” “Indiana Jones,” and even “Harry Potter.”
However, while some of the Harry Potter memorabilia may be going for a little less that a few hundred bucks, Indiana Jones’ famous bullwhip will set you back the cost of a small property.
The auction also includes lots from famous musicians, including Jimi Hendrix.
A collection of just 3 minted metal coins, ranging in size from 1 inch round to 1.5 inches, featured in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone” from the only bank in the wizarding world “Gringotts Bank.” The starting bid was just $ 300 (£197) but bids are now exceeding $ 800 (£527).
Chris Evans’ “Captain America” dog tags from “Captain America: The First Avenger” is going for a bargain starting bid of $ 1,000 (£658). They are stamped with “Steven G Rogers, 987654320 T42 0 P.”
Legendary musician Jimi Hendrix is just about as famous for his guitar skills as with his drug use. Now fans can buy his personal stash bag for an estimated value of $ 3,000 (£1,974).
Michael Jackson’s size X-Large white felt fedora was used in his performances. It was also signed by Jackson in black marker below the brim, “All my love, Michael Jackson 1998 000”. It’s going for a bargain $ 3,500 (£2,303).
