Wolverine, Batman, Laura Croft, or Chewabacca - Who's Worth More?
They may have never met on the big screen, but their costumes will duke it out for bidder's attention. Wolverine's black leather X-men battle suit is expected to fetch $30,000 - $50,000 and Batman's costume from "Batman Returns" (worn by Michael Keaton) is also estimated to bring in between $30K - $50K.
Who will claim costume auction glory? Which suit would you bid on?
It may be that Superman trumps all with an iconic hero costumes from "Superman: The Movie" (worn by Christopher Reeve) estimated to fetch $60K – $80K.
Other items up for grabs are the Peter Mayhew original Chewbacca head from "Star Wars" (estimated $60K - $80K,) a complete Cylon costume from "Battlestar Galactica" (estimated $40K – $60K,) and a Lara Croft jacket (worn by Angelina Jolie) from "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" which carries an estimated $2K – $3K price tag.
From the looks of things, this will be an epic auction attracting the hardest of hardcore collectors out for the day. The four day "Treasures from the Hollywood Vaults" auction is run by Joe Maddalena (Profiles in History.)
