The company selling Prop Store souvenirs from June 29 to July 1 will announce a “magic” auction in Los Angeles. This is reported by Reuters on May 24.
According to Matt Truex, marketing manager at the Prop Store, the auction will be the largest ever held, and he expects increased interest from collectors.
He said the wand and Harry Potter glasses worn by Daniel Radcliffe during the filming of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” promises to be one of the most sought-after items.
“This is the first time the Warner Brothers archive has auctioned off a Harry Potter wand and glasses. Interestingly, 100 percent of the proceeds from the auction of these two items will go to charity, each estimated to be worth between $30,000 and $50,000,” Truex said.
Fans of another popular movie saga – about Indiana Jones – will get a chance to buy the suede hat in which Harrison Ford confronted the goddess of death Kali in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” (it is estimated at $250-350,000).
In addition, collectors will find memorabilia from such films as “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” “Batman” and “Elf.” In all, more than 1,200 items from the movie sets will be auctioned off.
In August 2019, it was reported that a copy of the first edition of British author Joan Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone sold at auction at the Hansons auction house for $34,500.
