77th week of IAW auctions (auctions ending August 2nd)
While this is the 77th week of auctions, It is titled Week 85 to be consistent with the Star Trek Auctions Archive.
There were 97 auctions this week, and the total sales were about $ 32,000. There just weren't a lot of interesting items this week. Lots of parts of uniforms and other small stuff, and not very many interesting costumes. Seems like the quality of auctions is dipping significantly. We don't see a lot of unique stuff lately and we see a lot of "filler" auctions.
The TNG Command Red Starfleet Uniform went for a strong $ 2,036. It just goes to show how important this costume has become. There are way more of the collared versions, but these costumes hold a special place in our heart. And of course, everyone wants Command red.
Hoshi Sato's Starfleet Uniform went for a very reasonable $ 1,301. At this price you really can't go wrong. This is the type of item you all should be looking at; character costumes in the $ 1,000 - $ 1,500 range. You won't see those prices in 2 years.
The Dr. McCoy Feature Film Undershirt brought a strong $ 1,261. A lot for just a shirt, but not if you are trying to complete a McCoy uniform!
Chris from the Star Trek Prop Forum finally got a set of Nemesis Romulan Senator's Robes at a reasonable $ 911. These went over $ 1,500 for a short period of time, despite going in the $ 600 range 6 months ago. Still, a nice price as this included a wig and Romulan forehead.
Finally, the Guinan costume was an awesome buy at only $ 799. WOW! What a steal!
And that is about it for costumes!
Captain Picard's Ready Room Desk went for a hefty, but well deserved $ 4,150. This will be an awesome prop for someone to have anchor their study! Congrats to MikeH2000 who has won some impressive items over the course of this auction.
The Star Trek VI Klingon Head Mask at $ 1,027 was about where these have been going. This one was a bit different, with a big beard.
The Enterprise E Bridge Chair at $ 899 was quite reasonable. Got to love these, but a bit harder to get excited about in my book. I want a desk chair!
The Andorian Console was actually a very good deal as it was almost 4' long. It went for only $ 660.
The Romulan Disruptor Rifle at $ 634 was a pretty good deal even though it was rubber.
Yeah, not a lot to look at prop wise. Lots of small stuff.
