Brandon Alinger, Prop Store’s COO commented on the auction: “Prop Store’s three-day Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction out of Los Angeles had an amazing opening day. Bidding was incredibly strong with many pieces outperforming their pre-sale estimates. We were especially thrilled to see our bidders’ love for Indiana Jones remains strong, with Harrison Ford’s Temple of Doom fedora selling for $375,000. We are also very pleased with the sale of the Harry Potter wand, eyeglasses, and set of signed books that were sold to benefit the charity Lumos Foundation USA, Inc.  We thank the many film fans and collectors who have taken part in the auction so far and hope to see everyone for the remaining 800-plus lots in the auction’s final two days, June 30th and July 1st.”
