Profiles In History - Dec. 17, 2019 - The Azarian Collection Auction - Star Trek Preview

On Tuesday, December 17th at 11:00 am PST, Profiles In History's The Azarian Collection Auction will commence at Profiles headquarters in Calabasas, CA.  A total of 22 lots of Star Trek memorabilia will be featured in the sale; highlighted by an exceptional number of Original Series leading cast costumes that include 3 different styles of screen worn William Shatner tunics (a wraparound, a formal dress and the memorable alternate universe style from the episode "Mirror, Mirror"), a Scotty formal dress tunic, an alternate universe Spock tunic, an alternative universe Sulu tunic, and Lt. Uhura's iconic 2 piece alternate universe ensemble from "Mirror, Mirror".  It is very unlikely that these 4 historic TOS mirror universe costumes will ever be offered again simultaneously in a single auction!

Other notable items from The Original Series include a set of Leonard Nimoy "Mr. Spock" Vulcan ear-tip appliances; Lee Meriwether's "Losira" costume from the 3rd season episode "That Which Survives"; and a hero working remote prop used by Steve Inhat as "Garth of Izar" in the memorable 3rd season episode "Whom Gods Destroy".
