Profiles May 2011: Live musings as they happen

May 15th 2011 at 4:40pm Midwest time.

So here we are again..joining the fun at lot 996….Emerald city worker shirt…$7,000 to the floor!

Lot 997 flowerpot oz hat is now at $8500…nice piece!

The Wicked witches globe/ball ha attracted alot of attention. Starts at 40k. And begins to rocket up. The caption FLOOR on my phone and computer as the high bidder
could mean attending the event or a phone bid….hard to tell. 60k…..65k……70k….this sure means alot to somebody. $75.000 so with commission and taxes over $100,000…
now $85…it just won’t stop. Joe Maddalena must be smiling from ear to ear. $100k!!!!! $110…amazing…it just won’t stop. So now its grinding to a halt…..and sold! “Oz” wins!

Not alot has been happening online. Live auctioneers shows precious few early auction bids.

Mighty Joe young gorilla arm starts at 6k. Lot 1007. Opens to the floor….and sold. Im sure thats not the first or last sold for opening bid item we will see today.

The lack of a sound system…or video really is hurting this auction…..I know they want to keep the footage for Hollywood Treasures but its hurting us sitting at home!

Thanks to all those that talked to me about certain items beforehand. Better to work together than alone! Also thanks to Fong Sam at Profiles for getting me pics over…I know you were VERY busy!

My son the vampire costume starts at $15,000 and is passed on. Who knew!

Lot 1014 is the James Dean jacket from Rebel without a cause…amazing piece. Starts at 30k to the floor….heads North quickly. Now at $45….$50…..$55…..this is a genuine piece of classic cinema though…not for me
but I get it sold for $55k

1019 A set of ten commandments props….starts at 3k….hits 6k in no time…..always refeshing when they have undervalued something…means the bidding actually increases quickly….who thought! The end price….10k

1027 Really cool to see this lot of Ben hur costume stuff go from a grand to $5,000…..Profiles might hate it took 3 minutes….and not 30 seconds…but its nice to see people working for stuff.

1029 Forbidden Planet pistol. I remember getting one that looked just like this in trade in 1993….so I wouldnt touch this…I just dont know enough about what makes it real. Its at $32,500 so clearly someone does. Stalls at $35k…I can’t help thinking that the 100% bonafide checked one would be worth more….but who knows

1034 Marilyn Shoes in pink….lept to $16k….

1040: Giant snail fx miniature from Doolittle…amazing. Starts at 13k….and I think sells for that.
