If you are a big fan of the Harry Potter series, and you want something a little more real than the interactive wand Guests can receive at Olivander’s in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort, or Universal Hollywood, perhaps Harry’s original wand from the films can scratch your itch!
Certain fandoms exist that develop a cult-like following, making lots of the merchandise from the films worth quite a lot. From Star Wars to Marvel to Harry Potter, many fans are willing to pay large sums of money to have something used on the film’s set and touched by the actors we idolize.
While filming Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe went through a few wands and circular glasses which were iconic to his character, and now, those items are going up for auction! From June 29 to July 1, Prop Store Collectables will be holding an auction that will have plenty of memorabilia any movie fan would drool over. The site notes that:
More than 1,300 incredible lots of rare props, costumes, production material and other entertainment memorabilia from over 500 titles will be up for auction.
Although the catalog is not yet fully available, from the photo alone, it seems that there will be collectible items for Star Wars fans, as well as horror lovers, considering one of Jason’s masks (Friday the 13th) is pictured on the cover.
Considering the first edition of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone sold for $84,000, we can only imagine how many items as iconic as Harry’s wand and spectacles will go for during the auction.
