Man From Atlantis Submarine Auctioned in 2009

The submarine miniature, that is. It was auctioned off during the second day of Profile In History‘s Hollywood Auction 36 on May 1st, 2009. The Live Auctioneers website has images and the original description from the auction catalog, which gave the miniature an estimated sale price of between $3,000 and $5,000. According to a list of prices realized for the Hollywood Auction 36, the miniature sold for $3,000. Here’s a screen capture from the catalog, which can be downloaded here:

Other items in the auction include a tunic from DuMont’s Rocky Jones, Space Ranger, a catsuit and belt worn by Lee Meriether as Catwoman on ABC’s Batman, costumes from NBC’s Quark, concept artwork for ABC’s Battlestar Galactica, a Hazzard County license plate from CBS’s The Dukes of Hazzard, and, unrelated to television, a whole slew of costumes from the Planet of the Apes films.

Profile In History’s Hollywood Memorabilia Auction 40 will be held on June 10th through 12th of this year. It includes 291 lots from the Star Trek franchise, some of which are for items from the original NBC series. Anyone want a collection of miscellaneous buttons from the bridge of the U.S.S. Enterprise? The estimated price is only $1,500 – $2,500. For the record, I have no connection to Profiles In History, I just enjoy browsing through their catalogs and looking at all the really neat stuff I could never, ever afford.
