PropStore June 28 - 30, 2023 Live Auction - Star Trek Results


Presented below is the complete set of final prices realized for the 99 lots of Star Trek memorabilia that were offered in the Prop Store June 28 - 30, 2023 Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction; which concluded this afternoon in a live online bidding session at the Prop Store (usm.propstoreauction.com) auction site.

Perhaps surprisingly, two of the three most expensive Trek related lots that sold in the auction were not screen used items, but rather highly detailed Quantum Mechanix studio scale replica starship models.  Lot #1214, a 3 foot long QMx Replica of the refit U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 ship from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, sold for $28,125 (including the 25% buyers premium); and Lot #1255, a 28" long QMx promotional Replica of the Enterprise NX-01 starship from Star Trek: Enterprise, witnessed a final sales price of $23,750 with buyers premium.  Lot #365, a James Doohan "Scotty" Maroon Starfleet Uniform from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, also realized $23,750, and Lot #378, a 3 foot long QMx promotional Replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701D ship from Star Trek: The Next Generation sold for $15,000. 

The following results show the final amounts realized for the various memorabilia lots, which includes the 25% buyers premium.  Just click on any of the images below to view an enlarged version ...
