I remember the days scribbling a letter to old St. Nick and my mom fake mailing it! I wish I could go back and experience that once more cause man that was fun! Now as a grown up who still loves toys and collecting pop culture I am tasked with putting together a Christmas wish list!
So last year I was a bit more practical and threw in a few items that were pricey but not completely out of the realm of possibility. This year I figured I'd have some fun while sharing some of the incredible stuff "Profiles in History" will be auctioning off in the near future.
So.....if anyone out there (St. Nick included) has a massive bank account and wants to make this man child's Christmas unforgettable....here's what it'll take......
#1: Screen used Han Solo Blaster from ESB and ROTJ
As far as movie props go, it doesn't get much more iconic than Han Solo's blaster. An absolutely amazing piece of movie history. It's predicted to sell between $200,000 and $300,000 but I wouldn't be at all surprised to see it go above and beyond that estimate.
"Hockey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid."
#2; Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade Grail Diary
"I should have mailed it to the Marx brothers!"
#3: Screen Used Willy Wonka outfit
"If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it...."
#4: Screen Used Golden Ticket
If you're in the market for a "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" prop....look no further! This, in my opinion, is the most important prop one could hope to own from the classic film!
#5: Screen Used Batman costume by Michael Keaton
"What kind of world do we live in, where a man dressed up like a bat gets all of my press!"
So that's that. The auction book is easily an inch thick and LOADED with tons of epic and amazing items. I could have easily chosen another 20+ items to add to this list but figured I'd stick to these five selections. They would be the ones I'd most definitely pursue if I happened to win the lottery in the next few weeks!
