Prop Store Sept. 16, 2021 Star Trek: Discovery Auction - Final Results

Presented below is the complete set of final prices realized for the 241 lots of Star Trek memorabilia that were offered in the Prop Store Sept. 16, 2021 Star Trek: Discovery Auction; which concluded last Thursday in a live online bidding session at the Prop Store (usm.propstoreauction.com) auction site.

The most expensive item in the sale was Lot Number 199, the Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Anson Mount Captain Christopher Pike Starfleet Uniform, which realized a final price of $36,250 (including a 25% buyers premium).  The gold colored Hero Captain-Rank Command Badge which was worn by Mount along with this uniform actually sold as a separate auction item, Lot #92, for a final price of $17,500 (including buyers premium); and a different screen used Hero Captain-Rank Command Badge, not attributed to any specific actor, sold as Lot #112 for an impressive final amount of $21,250 (based on a winning bid of $17,000).  These are likely the highest priced Starfleet badges ever sold at auction.  Other highly notable items in the auction included Lot #9, a Star Trek: Discovery Hero Light-Up Starfleet Type II Hand Phaser, which witnessed a final sales price of $26,250 (including buyers premium),  and Lot #32, a Star Trek: Discovery Season 1 Captain Gabriel Lorca Starfleet Uniform worn by Jason Isaacs, that sold for $22,500 with premium.

The following results show the final high bid amounts realized for the various memorabilia lots, which does not include the additional 25% buyers premium.  Just click on any of the images below to view an enlarged version ...
