From the original Back to the Future movie (1985) is a hand-painted dance poster titled Enchantment under the Sea that hung in the high school hallway.
From Star Wars and Star Trek come the screen-used section of the Death Star, used to explode the ships in the original Star Wars movie (1977), mounted with screen sequence photos in a display case; the screen-used hero working light-up TR-590 Starfleet Tricorder, from the Star Trek TV series; and Will Wheaton’s (as “Wesley Crusher”) screen-used Communication Badge, with magnetic closure, from the long-running TV series Star Trek Next Generation (1987-1994).
Electric guitars – one signed by members of The Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richards, Ian Stewart, Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts), the other by members of The Grateful Dead (Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan and Bill Kreutzmann) – will be sold, both with certification, as will an original 1969 concert poster for the Woodstock Concert Festival, framed, with an accompanying ticket to the iconic event.
