An extraordinary archive of entertainment memorabilia will go under the hammer at Don Presley Auctions on 29th October in Orange, California. All forms of bidding will be available, including live via the internet through www.LiveAuctioneers.com and www.Proxibid.com
The entertainment and pop culture collection, which numbers some 40,000 pieces, will be auctioned in 400 group lots, presenting a buying opportunity like no other before it. The collection’s contents include movie memorabilia, props, costumes, posters, scripts and other ephemera, including movie production items, thousands of Disney animation production cells, original Tim Burton art, unreleased publicity photos and many autographed theatrical posters, prints and artworks.
A specialty collection of Wizard of Oz memorabilia spans the entire 20th century and includes posters, prints and lobby cards, autographed and foreign-language Oz books, film compilation reels with footage of Oz productions, and movie production publicity stills that were never released to the public.
“We think there will be massive international interest in this collection,” said Don Presley. “I have been an auctioneer since the 1970s and, in my opinion, this is Hollywood’s premier archive of film and entertainment memorabilia. It’s filled with unique treasures ranging from the silent-film era to modern-day productions – a once in a lifetime buying opportunity.”
