Movie props demand big bucks at auction, especially if they’re iconic props from equally iconic films, and those who choose to collect movie memorabilia and props are used to paying a hefty price for each piece.
Because of the cost of collecting, and storing or displaying, movie props they're put up for auction from private sellers all the time, and some really amazing stuff inevitably makes its way onto Ebay.
Joe MacFarland from Ebay Stories shared an infographic that reveals the most expensive movie props ever sold, many of which were featured on Ebay.
It's no surprise that props like Dorothy's Ruby Slippers, Marilyn Monroe's dress from The Seven Year Itch and the Delorean from Back To The Future have sold for a more than modest sum, but I was surprised to see Wilson the volleyball from Castaway sold for forty grand!
Anybody got a volleyball and some paint?!
