Auction of the Daleks
Thereâ€™s a lot to be said for collectors. They lavish attention on their chosen items and keep them in immaculate condition. They also know a bargain when they see one and are perfectly willing to â€œflash the cashâ€ when the deal is right.
At www.paulfrasercollectibles.com a list has been put together of their top five television memorabilia collectibles that have sold for a pretty penny.
In amongst these treasures is the General Lee car from the Dukes of Hazzard, which sold for a whopping Â£300,000 ($450,000) , the Adam West version of the Batman suit which was went for Â£23,190 ($35,850), Trigger the horse from The Ray Rogers Show (Which had been stuffed after it died!) got sold at a total of Â£172,380 ($266,500) and one of the Dharma Initiative vans from Lost cost one happy buyer Â£30,725 ($47,500.).
The highlight (for us anyway) was a sixty five inch imperial black and gold Dalek, which was estimated to sell at Â£2,500 – 3,500 ($3,865 – 5,410) but actually finished being sold at a grand total of Â£20,400 ($31,540)-never underestimate a Dalek!
The Dalek itself actually appeared in Remembrance of the Daleks and so itâ€™s no wonder it sold at such a high price. Although, look at the picture of it and the grating under its top eye section does look quite sloppy, canâ€™t see how that was missed…
