While the Battlestar Galactica auctions have dominated my working life the past year (and cut down on my Star Trek activity), my passion for Star Trek has not diminished. And so, last year I started working on making the sale of the Doug Drexler collection into a full blown auction.
Propworx, my company, is now working on 5 new auctions for 2010, Iron man being the first, which will be April 17-18 at the Chicago Comic Con. But right after that will be the Propworx Star Trek auction in May. We haven’t set a date yet, but we are working on it now. The auction will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center in Los Angeles. We are also hoping to get CBS involved, and more on that will follow.
This auction will consist of the Doug Drexler collection, the Rick Sternbach collection and items from other behind the scenes Star Trek luminaries. So far we have about 300 lots, including some amazing pieces of Star Trek history, dating back to TOS. Most amazing of all is the Star Trek Kirk filming miniature from The Motion Picture.
And if you liked our Battlestar Galactica catalogs, then what we have planned for the Star Trek catalog will blow you away. The catalog will be a true collector’s item, and be a signed, limited edition. It will include interviews with Star Trek creators and be a real work of art.
We will also be having a “Behind the Scenes at Star Trek” event the day before the auction, with panel discussions from the people who created the art, props, models and costumes for Star Trek, so you really will want to come out to this event. Plus there will be a get together for Star Trek Prop, Costume & Auction Forum members.
Also, if you have any Star Trek items you would like to consign, we are taking consignments now. Contact me at email@example.com. We have a few more surprises up our sleeve that we will let you know about over the coming months.
