The Last Remaining Items From Syfy’s Hit Show Will Go On The Auction Block December 8, 2009 Through March 5, 2010
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – December 3, 2009 – The dates are set for the final online auctions of props and costumes from Syfy’s acclaimed drama “Battlestar Galactica.” The last three auctions will take place on eBay December 8 through December 15, 2009; January 17 through January 24, 2010; and February 26 through March 5, 2010. In these final auctions, fans and collectors will have their last chance to purchase a memento from the iconic drama. “Battlestar Galactica” concluded its successful run on the Syfy channel on March 20, 2009.
NBC Universal Television, DVD, Music and Consumer Products Group has teamed with Propworx to hold the series of live and online auctions over the past year, which all began with a live auction event weekend at the Pasadena Convention Center on January 17, 2009. Several familiar items have been sold to fans and collectors around the world, including the original “Number Six” red dress, the Cylon Resurrection Tub, Admiral Adama’s desk, President Laura Roslyn’s podium and the Cylon War painting. Thousands of dollars have also been raised for the benefit of many charities including the United Way, as well as charities designated by several of the show’s actors.
In the remaining auctions, fans will have a chance to bid on several notable items including a “Number Six” red dress, Admiral Adama’s dog tag and his “stunt duty blue” uniform, dog tags for Colonel Saul Tigh, Chief Galen Tyrol and Karl “Helo” Agathon, a Joe’s Bar sign and a Centurion toy mask and gun.
“The tremendous interest and fan support for this show have made it a great model for prop and costume auctions,” said Kurt Ford, Senior Vice President, Production Services, NBC Universal. “We’ve had a great time offering all these unique items to fans and collectors over the past year and it’s hard to believe that it’s almost over.”
“As a fan of the show, it’s been very gratifying to work on these ‘Battlestar Galactica’ auctions,” said Alec Peters, CEO of Propworx. “This series was one of the most unique science fiction dramas on television and these auctions will help the show live on.”
