Up for Auction: Princess Leia’s golden bikini; Sam’s hobbit feet; Original Ted stuffed bear puppet; plus hundreds of other authentic Hollywood collectibles
I feel like a kid in a candy store — hundreds of wonderful Hollywood memoribilia is coming up for auction from September 29 through October 1, 2015. When I heard about Princess Leia’s golden bikini in the Jaba the Hutt scene from Return of the Jedi coming up for sale, I wanted it — then I hear the price. The opening bid will be $80,000. I decided to pass. Looking through the catalog of all the items to be auctioned in Hollywood Auction 74, hosted by Profiles in History and Invaluable.com, makes me feel like I did when I was a young child with Christmas a few weeks away. I would spend hours flipping through the pages of the Sears & Roebuck catalog looking at all the wonderful toys and gifts for Christmas, trying to decide what to ask for.
There are 1935 items listed in this catalog spanning the silent era to modern film, costumes and props from the dawn of television up through the latest popular programs. The catalog appears to be in chronological order, for the most part.
The first item listed is an #1 Early Childhood Portrait of Buster Keaton used for a Newspaper Article, (ca. 1889), and the last item listed is #1935 Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back British Quad Poster (1980). This is why I said the catalog is in chronological order for the most part as there are plenty of items post-The Empire Strikes Back.

|Various examples in chronological order, for the most part. First, though, is the item that drew me to this auction website – Princess Leia’s gold bikini.
