Presented below is the complete set of final prices realized for the 75 lots of Star Trek memorabilia that were offered in the Heritage February 22, 2022 To Boldly Go ... Star Trek: The Auction; which concluded yesterday with a live online bidding session at the HeritageLive!  (www.HA.com/Live) auction site.

The most expensive item in the sale was Lot #89006, the William Shatner TOS Season 1 "Captain Kirk" Starfleet Tunic and Pants, featuring a rare, early velour command tunic that had been previously screen-matched to the episodes "This Side of Paradise" and "Shore Leave", which realized a final price of $125,000 (including a 25% buyers premium) - making it the most-expensive Shatner costume ever to sell at auction.  Interestingly, the previous record holder was the very same tunic in this lot when it sold as a stand alone item in Profiles In History's July, 2012 Hollywood Auction 49 for a total of $98,400 (including a 23% buyers premium).  Some additional impressive results from yesterday's bidding include the Leonard Nimoy 2 Piece Alternate Universe Costume from the TOS 2nd season episode "Mirror, Mirror", which sold for a final value of $55,000; as well as William Shatner's own 3 Piece "Mirror, Mirror" Alternate Universe costume which witnessed a final price of $50,000.  A rare DeForest Kelley Starfleet Surgical Tunic and Pants from The Original Series sold for $27,500.
