Looking for a piece of Star Trek to complete your collection?
It can be difficult to find that perfect, one-of-a-kind item you’re looking for to complete your collection or even to get it started. Auction houses are often the best places to start your search. And with bidding beginning on June 28th, Heritage Auction is giving you a chance to own a piece of Star Trek, much of which is artwork from the series and the movies that includes concept art, costume sketches, two animation sericels from the original 1970s animated series which have been signed by Nichelle Nichols, and screen-used matte paintings.
Matte paintings aren’t popular now since the inception of CGI, and this auction includes over 20 matte paintings from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager, along with two matte paintings depicting Yosemite from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. (There’s even one of Cardassia!)
There is more than art included in the Star Trek auction lot
But if you’re not into art, you’re not out of luck as Heritage Auction is also offering a pair of screen-used Spock ears worn by Leonard Nimoy in The Original Series which will, undoubtedly, go for a nice chunk of change. There is also a collection of seven scripts from The Original Series, which include Mirror, Mirror, Bread and Circuses, That Which Survives, and Metamorphosis which is signed by both the writer, Gene Coon, and James Doohan.
Also included in the auction lot is a phaser from Star Trek: Into Darkness, an Enterprise-D Transporter Room LCARS panel transparency, a Klingon mask from The Undiscovered Country, and an extremely rare Hero Type-2 Phaser Pistol from The Original Series (Paramount, 1966-1969).
Again, bidding begins on June 28th. To discover more pieces up for auction and to get ready to cast your bid, visit https://entertainment.ha.com, and search for Star Trek. Once gone, some of these items will never be available again unless sold by a collector, and odds are the price will be even higher than what you might be able to get through an auction.
