79th week of IAW auctions (auctions ending August 22nd)
While this is the 79th week of auctions, It is titled Week 88 to be consistent with the Star Trek Auctions Archive.
I am now linking to Burt’s Star Trek Auction Archive rather than eBay auctions ads since the eBay ads go away after 30 days, but Burt’s Archive is forever! So every link below links not to the auction ad on eBay, but to the item on the archive.
Note that there were 3 items in Week 87 according to Burt, but I am rolling that into Week 88. Not going to do a blog on 3 items!
The Captain Archer Uniform was a great deal at $5,100 as it came with rank pins and boots. We rarely see Captain’s uniforms so complete. And $ 5,100 is about as cheap as you can expect to get one for these days. The fact that it is autographed is kind of irrelevant. Thank God IAW was smart enough to just get it autographed on the tag.
The DS9 Colonel Kira Bajoran Militia Costume went for a reasonable $ 3,447. I think there are way better looking Kira’s, but none the less, this came with boots a holster and pins, so not a bad deal.
The Star Trek V Sybok Costume went for a healthy $ 2,551. This was the best of the Sybok’s we have seen so far and had all the pieces. Star Trek Prop Forum old timer Aaron Carlson, the man with the largest STar Trek V collection in the known universe, won this costume to go with his other Star Trek V goodies.
The Tom Paris Starfleet uniform lot went cheap at $ 1,185. Not sure why Voyager character costumes go so cheap. Outside of the Doctor and 7 of 9, the characters have been cheap for a while.
The Star Trek: The Motion Picture Brown Collared Class A Costume at $ 848 was a good deal on a very cool costume. These costumes will only go up in value as they are really overlooked.
The Enterprise Half Missle at $ 2,304 was pretty cool. Mount this on your wall and impress your friends when they visit your home theater! (Not as cool as Daryl’s whole missile, the only one IAW has sold so far as I know.
The Rounded Borg Interface Panel at $ 1,251 was just about the same exact price as the last one that sold. Not bad, and fairly interesting. Reasonable at this price.
The Star Trek III Pair of Genesis Organisms went for a very strong $ 1,225, more than double what a similar (or maybe the same) set went for last time. Of course, these are rubber, but they seem to have held up well.
I was very happy to win the Romulan Wall Flat from Enterprise at $ 866. I really wanted it to use as a back drop for my Romulan costume, and I think I won it at a good price.
