Indiana Jones and Harry Potter have been one of the all-time most favorite franchises that many generations have had the privilege to grow up watching. When Daniel Radcliffe pops up on the screen with the wand in his hand, and the iconic Harry Potter track begins, you know you are in for a magical experience!
Now here is an exciting piece of news for millions and millions of Indiana Jones and Harry Potter fans across the globe. The Prop Store in California is getting ready for a huge auction of 1,200 film and television items in June, which includes Indiana Jones fedora and Harry Potter’s glasses.
Matt Truex, Marketing Manager at the Prop Store, said that the auction was the biggest they had ever held. The live auction starting from June 29 to July 1, is targeting to earn more than $6.1 million. Bidders will be able to view the full catalog of items being auctioned through Zoom and make their purchases online and by phone.
“One of the hottest items in our auction is this original Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford’s fedora hat from ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’, the second film. This is valued in auction for $250,000 to $350,000,” Mr.Truex added.
Among the hundreds of items, collectors will be able to find memorabilia from all-time favorite films like ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’, ‘Batman’, ‘Elf’, ‘Top Gun’, and ‘The Muppets’. Harry Potter’s wand and eyeglasses, worn by Daniel Radcliffe during production on “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” is another most sought-after prop in the catalog.
“This is the first time that the Warner Brothers’ archive has released Harry Potter’s wand and glasses to the auction. The exciting part for this as well is that 100 percent of the hammer price proceeds for these two pieces are going to go to charity and both of them are valued at $30,000 to $50,000 each,” Mr. Truex said.
Mr. Truex said fans without a huge budget can also take part in the auction, as there are collectibles going under the hammer for most budgets. “We’ve got something for every price range from the hundreds of thousands to the low hundreds,” he added.
