Earhart Goggles Tops Celebrity Auction Items

Subscribe to Hilary Swank alerts

Hilary Swank's new biopic about AMELIA EARHART is sure to be a fly-away success if demand for the aviator's memorabilia is an indicator - her goggles topped all celebrity items at a California auction last week (09Oct09).
The eye accessories Earhart wore during her historic 1932 solo transatlantic flight sold for more than a guitar Elvis Presley used onstage in Las Vegas and an endoskeleton from Terminator sequel T2 3-D.
Auction experts at Profiles in History were stunned as the goggles sent bidding into a flurry - they eventually went under the hammer for $141,600 (GBP94,400) at the 37th Hollywood Memorabilia Auction.
Presley’s personal Martin D-28 guitar state, used in his final Las Vegas performance, fetched $106,200 (GBP70,800) and an original hero screen-used T-800 Endoskeleton from T2 3-D: Battle Across Time went under the hammer for $94,400 (GBP62,933).
Also snapped up at the auction: a full-scale screen-used Hero Bumblebee robot from Transformers, Michael Jackson’s iconic illuminating glove worn on state during The Jackson’s Victory Tour and a Harrison Ford-signed Indiana Jones bullwhip from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
