What would you pay to own a piece of television history?
The late Leonard Nimoy’s uniform worn as Science Officer Spock during season 2 of The Original Series will be up for auction set for September 23rd at 2:00 PM, GMT +1. This historic wardrobe is listed among numerous other iconic props and sci-fi cinematic memorabilia from movies like Alien, Armageddon, Back to the Future, Blade Runner, Star Wars, The Dark Crystal, and the Doctor Who TV series. Bidding starts at a cool £25,000 and is expected to fetch between £50,000 – £70,000 (approximately $76,735 – $115,103 US Dollars).
According to the auction site, the uniform’s fabric features indicate that it was most likely warn for episodes “The Ultimate Computer” and “The Omega Glory.”
“Both garments were uniquely tailored for Nimoy in the role of Spock with side-stitching used to reduce the size of the tunic’s chest, some of which has come away over time. The bottom cuffs of the trousers were modified for use in Star Trek: Phase 2. The tunic displays some light fading. The name “Nimoy” is hand-written internally on the trousers’ left pocket.
Acquired directly from Paramount Studios in the early 1990s and offered with original Paramount Archives wardrobe tags, the costume remains in overall very good condition.”
It comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Other Star Trek items such as miniature reference model photographs (starting bid at £50) and Nimoy’s personal storyboards for Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (starting bid at £400) will also be up for auction at the same time. The auctions are currently open to pre-bidding and absentee bidding before they go live in late September.
