Looking to have the last laugh? Well, you better scrounge about for a lot of spare change. One of Jack Nicholson's original Joker suits is about to go on sale, and it could be yours if you are in the market.
According to a recent update by Wired, London’s Prop Store is about to host an auction containing 600 pieces from major Hollywood films. The sale will take place on September 26, and the auction’s stock will be a massive one. Brandon Alinger, a collectibles expert with Prop Store, confirmed the sale would be a multi-consignor sale, so items are being sold by studios and even private collectors.
Of course, Batman fans will hone in on Nicholson’s Joker suit. The iconic purple-and-orange costume is instantly recognizable to fans of the caped crusader. The suit does have a hefty starting bid, so only the most dedicated (or loaded) fans can make a play for it. The suit starts at nearly $13,000 and the Joker’s fedora and trench coat will be sold separately.
If you thought the suit’s price tag is a bit much, you haven’t gotten to the real expensive stuff yet. The auction will bid out a part of light-up Nike boot which Mary McFly wore in Back to the Future Part II. The kicks, which were worn by Michael J. Fox, have a starting bid of $16.195.
Think that is expensive? Marvel fans will balk at the price tag attached to Peter Quill’s helmet worn by Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy. The headpiece is going for over $19,000. However, nothing can compare to a piece of movie memorabilia with Harrison Ford’s seal of approval. The whip the actor used in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade will be auctioned off with bids starting at a paltry $32,395.
Prop Store will be auctioning off some marginally more affordable items as well. Fans can nab the Xenomorph egg from the end of Aliens at under $1,300 if they’re lucky.
Of course, hopeful buyers should keep in mind that these prices are just starting bids. The actual cost for these props could be much higher than anyone expects. Earlier this year, an original R2-D2 unit from the original Star Wars trilogy sold at auction for $2.67 million while Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber sold for a grand $450,000.
