Hollywood Treasure, is quickly becoming my new favorite TV show. It is on Wednesday nights on Syfy. The show follows Joe Maddalena. He is the owner of Profiles in History, which is an auction house for original movie, TV and pop culture costumes, props, and relics.
The show features the most amazing items. In last nights episode, Joe visits the home of a Back to the Future collector. In the guy's garage sits the Old West Delorean from Back to the Future 3. Joe asked the guy if he would ever consider selling it and estimated that it could bring probably a million at auction. Of course, it wasn't for sell, but the item he did sell ( Hobgoblin Mask from Spiderman) sold for 17,000.
The item that had my heart beating was one of the original painting from Disney's Haunted Mansion ride.
I do a few a prop items from several of the ABC soaps. Disney used to host an event called Super Soap Weekends. It was great!! They would have different soap stars that you could meet and get autographs. But they also had props and costumes for sell. With all of the soaps getting canceled, maybe someday my items will be worth something.
