Iconic ‘Back To The Future’ Auctions End Wednesday
Iconic Back to the Future Auctions End Wednesday
Sometimes you just can’t get enough of the Bizarre, so here’s a special update to hold you over until the next Bizarre on a Budget feature.
Stories about hoverboards and other Back to the Future II related technology have dominated the news as we approach the upcoming important fictional date of October 21st 2015.
Now that we are only a month way from being ‘in the future,’ you have chance to own pieces of that future, before it even arrives.
Now, Invaluable, an online auction site with a large movie memorabilia segment, is promoting The Prop Store’s online live memorabilia auction featuring some iconic items from the Back to the Future series.
These London-based auctions end at 2:00 PM BST on September 23rd and allow you to bid on items from the 1985 original Back to the Future film and the 1989 sequel Back to the Future II.
Most of the items in the collection will set you back a few hundred pounds sterling.
The most expensive starting price in the round of auctions ending this week belongs to Grays Sports Almanac. The book, which Biff uses to get rich and powerful in the film’s alternate timeline, starts at £2,000. If that is a little pricey, the bidding starts at £50 for a production call sheet from the original film’s tenth day of shooting.
Maybe you are more interested in a set of high-end high-tops than faux newspapers and fedoras?
If you have stashed away your winnings from using your own Gray’s Sports Almanac brought back from the future, you can also bid on Marty Mcfly’s self-lacing Nikes. They are offered by “Profiles in History” and end on October 1st. The starting price on those? Only $30,000.
