Profiles announces contest for Captain America auction.

Prop Store
Movie Prop Collectors, as many other media outlets, received this press release today from Profiles in History.

The release announces a contest ( 2 photos at site for those who wish to see them) being held at C2E2 and at Facebook where 2 lucky people can win a production made prop. A Captain America(carded and graded) comic book.

There will be one given away at the auction/C2E2 and one via entries from Profiles Facebook page.

I was given a photo last week from Fong Sam at Profiles, that hinted at what this contest was going to be.

This is the first time I have seen something like this at an auction, which is kind of cool.


LOS ANGELES- April 2, 2012 – Profiles in History, run by Joe Maddalena, will be holding two separate raffles to give away two original prop Captain America Comics #1 made for the film production of Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The First Avenger. Each prop comic book has been certified and given a 9.4 grade by the Certified Guaranty Company (CGC). The comic book is pictured left. CGC is the first and most trusted independent, impartial, third-party grading service for collectible comic books.

One prop comic book will be raffled off at the Chicago Entertainment and Comic Expo (C2E2). For those not attending C2E2, Profiles will raffle off the other prop comic book via Facebook. Winners will be announced on April 14, at 5:30pm CDT, just before the Captain America: The First Avenger auction at 6pm CDT. Details for both contests are below.

The hero Captain America shield encased in “ice” resin, pictured below, will be part of the auction. The first time we ever see Captain America’s ultimate hero shield is in the opening scene of the film where an expedition of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in the Arctic investigates the wreckage of the Suborbital Bomber. Entering the hull of the frozen ship, the explorers discover the iconic red, white and blue shield frozen solid in a block of ice. This prop is composed of a distressed, metallic Captain America shield suspended in a solid block of clear resin, a one-of-a-kind, significant piece. It is expected to fetch $4,000 – $6,000.

Well it's over...I learned that I'm not good at pricing props...$190K for the CA costume PLUS $44K in fees. OUCH! Congrats!

But okay I get it, Hero suit. It's the smaller items that went for several $$$ that surprise me.

I got 1 of the items I wanted. Bucky POW costume

The deal of the Day in my opinion was the Taxi. It went for less than the Door (Shield)...

Now I am completely pissed I didn't win that megamillions jackpot.

Eh, least it wasn't like 10k or something. That would at least be in the "Crap I could have sold a kidney!" range :lol
