The 1980s were a wonderful time for fans of comedy, fantasy, and superhero movies. Now retro film fanatics have a chance to snatch up some iconic props and costumes from the era. On December 1 and December 2, Prop Store is hosting a live, virtual auction of memorabilia from hit movies like Batman (1989), Superman IV (1987), Labyrinth (1986), and The Princess Bride (1987).
The costumes worn by some of cinema's most famous characters, including some legendary superheroes, are hitting the auction block next month. The cowl worn by Michael Keaton in Tim Burton's Batman is estimated to sell for between $10,560 and $13,200 while Christopher Reeve's tunic and leggings from Superman IV: The Quest for Peace will likely fetch a bid of $19,800 to $26,400.
Bidders will also find collector's items from beloved '80s comedies, like Robin Wright's dress from The Princess Bride (estimated to sell for $7920 to $10,560) and John Candy's bowling bowl from Uncle Buck ($6600 to $9240). The most expensive piece going up for sale is Sylvester Stallone's hero bow and arrows from Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985), with an estimated value of $46,200 to $59,400. Other hot-ticket items featured in the auction include David Bowie's crystal ball from Labyrinth ($13,200 to $19,800); Eddie Murphy's Detroit Lions Letterman jacket from Beverly Hills Cop II (1987) ($3960 to $6600); and Sean Connery's Katana from Highlander (1986) ($7920 to $10,560).
The auction will be live-streamed online on December 1 and 2, so participants can follow the action as they bid virtually, either online or by phone. You can register for the event here.
