Michael Jackson Auction July 17th @ THEMEMORABILIAVAULT.COM


Online PR News – 29-June-2015 – New York, NY – With the upcoming release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens interest in memorabilia and props from the saga have continued to grow. Props and production used items from the original trilogy garner the most interest and are some of the most sought after, rarest and hardest to obtain items in the Star Wars collectors universe. In 2011 a camera used to film Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope sold for over $600,000, more recently a Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Clapperboard sold for almost $40,000 and a screen used T.I.E. Fighter sold for over $400,000 several years ago.

Currently The Memorabilia Vault is holding an auction on their website www.thememorabiliavault.com which features a production used clapperboard from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. The clapperboard has an auction estimate of $10,000 - $15,000 but based on past sales of Star Wars production used items it could fetch much more.

The Memorabilia Vault states: "We are very excited to have such a rare and unique item such as the Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back clapperboard we currently have up for sale in our summer auction. We believe there will be a lot of interest in this item and hope it ends up with someone who will cherish it"

Other highlights from the auction include:

A crystal glove worn by Michael Jackson which he gifted to Senator Royal L. Bolling for his support over the years. The glove is accompanied by a letter signed by Bob Jones on MJJ Productions letterhead which explains the gloves history as well as a letter of authenticity.

Tupac Shakur's personal signed stock certificate for his shares in his company 2PACALYPSE Enetertainment Inc.

The auction is currently open for bidding and ends on July 17th at 9 PM EDT. For more information or to bid please visit: www.thememorabiliavault.com.
