Christopher Reeve's costume from the first Superman movie and a Batsuit worn by Batman Forever star Val Kilmer are among the rare items being offered for auction by
Profiles In History on April 5.
Reeve's red-and-blue suit from 1978's Superman is expected to fetch between $50,000 and $70,000, as is Kilmer's costume.
Also for sale in the auction, which begins at 11 a.m. PT, is a Wicked Witch of the West "Winkie" guard costume from The Wizard of Oz ($100,000-$120,000).
Profiles in History's 27th auction includes Superman producer Ilya Salkind's collection, featuring Yvonne Blake's costume designs for Reeve as the Man of Steel and Marlon Brando as Jor-El; the original unpublished archive of transcripts of his brainstorming meetings with writer Mario Puzo discussing the genesis of Superman; and his personal copy of the Superman script.
The auction will also feature Leonard Nimoy's Spock tunic from the first season of Star Trek ($30,000-$50,000), an HR Giger Alien creature suit (100,000-$120,000), Arnold Schwarzenegger's costume from Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines ($20,000-$30,000), Hugh Jackman's Wolverine claws from X2 ($10,000-$12,000), Samuel L. Jackson's stunt-fighting lightsaber from Star Wars: Episode II Attack Of The Clones ($40,000-$60,000) and the Staff of Ra headpiece from the original Raiders of the Lost Ark ($60,000-$80,000).
Wow! What an auction that's going to be! And the blurb doesn't even include the non-fanboy items up for grabs....Obviously, the Superman stuff would top my wish list, for sure. My other big want would have to be that Staff of Ra headpiece from Raiders.
