This Classic TV Auction Is The Coolest Thing You’ll See Today
We look at a lot of auctions because there's some really cool stuff out there to put on the shopping list for the day we hit the lottery.
Now, I'm pretty sure I found the coolest, most nostalgia filled auction I may have ever seen.
The collection comes from James Comisar, who is known in his field by many for his ability to locate, valuate, authenticate and care for television artifacts.
I'm going to give you some of my highlights from this thing, but there are honestly too many to list without leaving out hundreds of items worth mentioning. They have stuff from Howdy Doody, Bozo's Circus, and about every commercial, you can think of, like the frogs from the Budweiser commercial.
You could have the Johnny Carson era Tonight Show reenactments in your living room. The desk, guest chair, guest couch, coffee table, and a bunch of other throwins come with this. Only downside is you're looking at about $100,000.
This diorama served as the set of some the iconic Keebler cookies commercials throughout the 1980s and 1990s - where they had the cartoon elves in a realistic tree.
In 2016, this item was layed into the themed rustic crate to keep it better protected and preserved. At the time of this writing, the bidding is at just $300.
You probably recognize this one right away. It was used in the commercial of the almond floating around the Hershey Kiss, and then the Hershey ribbon was used like a lasso to pull the almond in.
There's not much more to be said about these iconic ears, seen on Mr. Spock in the original Star Trek series. While you're on the auction site, be sure to check out the other Trek series.
From Heritage Auctions;
Many of the elements of this hero ensemble are marked "A" (for Adam West), and the utility is lightly marked in graphite on the reverse, "Adam West", both indicating the uniform was expressly used by series lead actor Adam West, then later in the motion picture Batman, The Movie (1966).
These are the suits worn in the TV show that helped get super heroes the jumpstart needed in the TV and movie business. See also, the Riddler's suit jacket.
1. The Actual Bartop From Cheers
If you want to make your house the place where everybody knows your name, maybe just buy the iconic bar from Cheers.
It starts at $100,000, so jump on it fast.
