“What better piece of film memorabilia than Jack’s highly recognizable coat to launch our Hollywood auction?” noted Joseph Maddalena, president and CEO of Profiles in History.
Also up for auction is one of the prison sweatshirts Steve McQueen wore in The Great Escape (estimate: $12,000), a Lone Ranger mask from the collection of Clayton Moore ($30,000) and — “Book ‘em, Danno!” — a Steve McGarrett Hawaii Five-O prop badge used by Jack Lord (a steal at its estimated price of $1,500).
There will also be dresses worn by Grace Kelly (estimate: $20,000), Ginger Rogers ($4,000) and Marilyn Monroe ($40,000).
Profiles will also be auctioning off its first Robin Williams items since the actor’s tragic death on Aug. 11, including a space costume (estimate: $15,000) and prop egg ($4,000) from the hit 1970s TV show Mork & Mindy. Also related to Williams: an original screen-used Jumanji game board from the 1995 movie ($30,000).
Other fun stuff includes 250 Star Trek: The Next Generation scripts from the personal collection of Jonathan Frakes, who played Commander William T. Riker (estimate: $6,000).
