Auctions beginning December 5th
I have decided to just go with Burt’s system of auction week numbering. Check out the Star Trek Auctions Archive for any information you need on the IAW auctions!
There were only 87 items in Week 104 and a really weak selection. Total sales were $ 25,402 and the average item was a paltry $ 292! Only 2 items topped $ 1,000 showing how bad a week it was.
The Reman Military Uniform at $ 2,225 was priced right and about where these costumes usually go. It is a beauty. I have one and can say that it is the most amazing costume in my collection. The fabrics are fascinating and they must have taken a lot of time and money to build.
The Romulan Senator Cretak costume was won by my good friend Jim Williams at the reasonable price of $ 965. A cool costume from a good episode of Deep Space Nine, I think this was a good buy. These costumes have really fantastic fabrics and great structure, so they look much better on person and display very well.
Poor Lt. Joseph Carey didn’t last long on Voyager. I guess once B’ellana topped him for Chief Engineer, the guy had no future! But I do like his jumpsuit, as these costumes do look best in Operations Gold and he was a character that we saw a few times. At $ 935 a good buy for a nice costume.
I finally won a Klingon Baldric Sash. The women of the Star Trek Prop Forum have been beating me to the punch lately, but they finally had theirs and I got a shot and was very happy with the price I paid. $ 735
I also won an Officer’s Belt from a Maroon Uniform, giving me every piece I need to put one together, save the actual jacket!. So at least I am getting there. I think it went pretty reasonably at $ 587.
The USS Excelsior Bridge Model at $ 1,601, isn’t really a prop, but beautiful none the less. This one is pretty cool and has a lot of neat little touches. It needs a bit of repair, but that doesn’t take away from the historical nature of this piece.
More a set piece than a prop, the Cardassian/Reman/Na’kuhl Console was a steal at only $ 920 and went to mega-collector Martin from Germany. He will pay for the shipping, but he can afford it since this console went cheap. Used in many episodes/movies for many different races, the description reads:
“A large console created for episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine like “Defiant” where it served on the set of Cardassian Central Command, later in Star Trek X: Nemesis where is was altered to be a Reman console on the bridge set of the “Scimitar”, and again as a console in the Na’kuhl base in the Star Trek: Enterprise episode “Storm Front”.”
That’s a lot of usage!!
My buddy Jim also won a set of Romulan Senate Seats at the very reasonable price of $ 511. I am not sure ow many more sets they have, but I think they are a great deal around this price.
