PropStore March 12 - 14, 2024 Live Auction - Star Trek Results

Presented below is the complete set of final prices realized for the 85 lots of Star Trek memorabilia that were offered in the Prop Store March 12 - 14, 2024 Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction; which concluded yesterday afternoon in a live online bidding session at the Prop Store (usm.propstoreauction.com) auction site. 

Two of the three most expensive Trek related lots that sold in the auction were hand-painted pieces of poster artwork; specifically, Lot # 329, a Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) Hand Painted Gerard Huerta Poster that sold for $37,500 (including the 25% buyers premium), and Lot # 328, a Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982) Hand Painted Bob Peak Concept Poster that witnessed a final sales price of $17,500 including buyers premium.  Lot # 336, a Spock Starfleet Costume with Stunt Pants from Star Trek Beyond (2016) realized $25,000, and Lot # 332, a Back-Up U.S.S. Enterprise-E Dedication Plaque from Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) sold for $12,500.

The highly anticipated Lot # 346, the screen used Captain's Chair from Seasons 2 through 7 of Star Trek: The Next Generation, with an estimated price range of $50,000 - $100,000, was a last minute withdrawal from the live auction in order to return it to the CBS Studios Star Trek Archive.  This set fixture had not been publicly seen in 30 years, after reportedly going missing from the set following the completion of filming of the TNG series finale "All Good Things ..." in 1994.

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 ...
