Parenthood, bidding warAn auction turned awkward on 'Parenthood' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC) when a bidding war on a premium parking space turned into a debate on working vs. non-working women.

So here's the takeaway: If you're ever involved in a bidding war, make sure the mic is turned off before you make disparaging remarks about the other bidder.

Watch the video after the jump.

Antiques Roadshow jade objects don't fetch as much money as thought

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 5th 2010 10:30AM
Antiques RoadshowIf you watched PBS' Antiques Roadshow last night, you saw the biggest appraisal in the show's history. A woman from North Carolina brought in jade objects that her father brought home from China after World War II. The woman wasn't sure how much they were worth, but the appraisers told her they were worth $710,000 to $1.07 million. Turns out though that she didn't get quite that much when she went to sell them.

Maine Antique Digest reports that the jade objects brought in $494,615 when she sold them at Skinner's in October.

Why didn't the objects bring in as much money as the Antiques Roadshow people thought? It's all explained in the article linked above but too involved to get into here. It involves math.

Battlestar Galactica to sell more props

by Brad Trechak, posted May 2nd 2009 5:00PM
Battlestar GalacticaWhen a show becomes a cult hit, what better way for the franchise to make extra cash then by selling all the props and sets from the show? It worked for Star Trek, among others.

This is likely why NBC Universal will be hosting its second live and online auction of the remaining props from Battlestar Galactica from May 8th to the 10th. They even sent us a promotional catalog of the props available for the event.

The catalog itself looks terrific and may be a collector's item all its own. It's done in the hexagonal paper style of the show and looks incredible.

Tony Soprano's bloody costume auctioned for charity

Tony's garbYesterday at Christie's in New York, Tony Soprano's costumes went up for auction. You not going to believe how much money a bloody wifebeater goes for these days. One fan of the show paid $43,750 for the outfit pictured to the right: a bloody tank, a stained button down shirt, and pants. The outfit was the one the Jersey mob boss wore when Uncle Junior mistakenly shot him.

Also up for bid was a four-piece set containing boxers, a robe, a sleeveless undershirt, and a pair of slippers (a costume Gandolfini donned many times on the show). It took home $21,250. Another robe (the tan one with an "S" monogram that Gandolfini wore in the pilot) went for $13.750. Overall, the iconic mafia boss's clothes brought in over $185,000.

Spitting Image puppets sold at auction

by Adam Finley, posted Jun 23rd 2007 2:04PM

spitting image thatcherSpitting Image was a satirical series focusing on politics and pop culture that aired in the UK from 1984 to 1996. American audiences may have caught a few primetime specials featuring the grotesque puppets, but other than those specials and Genesis' video for "Land of Confusion," the characters never really took hold in the US. It's somewhat of a shame, because they were really funny, and a lot better than D.C. Follies, Sid and Marty Krofft's lame attempt at political puppet humor. Not even Fred Willard could save that series.

Recently, two Spitting Image puppets, Margaret Thatcher and Gordon Brown, were purchased at an auction for £5,040 and £4,800. Had I known they were up for sale, I would have bid on them myself. What's £5,040 translate to in American dollars? Like a buck fifty? Or is that just a fantasy I've concocted to convince myself I could ever actually own one of those puppets?

eBay bidder fails to pay for General Lee

by Adam Finley, posted May 10th 2007 2:02PM

general leeRemember when the General Lee (or one of many versions) went up for auction on eBay recently and someone finally won the auction with a bid of $9,900,500?

Well, the person who made that bid, one William Fisher, has disappeared, along with the alleged $9,900,500 he was supposedly going to pay for the 1969 Dodge Charger owned by actor John Schneider (Bo Duke). The car itself was never used on the original series, but it did appear in the TV movie Dukes Go to Hollywood.

General Lee goes for $10 million on eBay

by Anna Johns, posted May 5th 2007 6:08PM
general leeThe General Lee broke a sales record on eBay this week. Actor John Schneider, who played Bo Duke on The Dukes of Hazzard, put up his version of the General Lee and it sold for $9,900,500. If the bidder actually pays the money, it'll be the biggest ticket item ever sold on eBay. Schneider says he's stunned, because he only expected $3 million at the most for the car. He says he'll use the extra cash for a vacation and to fund a sequel to a movie he recently made.

As I mentioned earlier this week, the 1969 Dodge Charger that Schneider put up for sale was not featured in the television show, but it did make an appearance in the movie Dukes Go To Hollywood. It has signatures from all the original cast members and it actually drives! Schneider has taken it to charity events and even raced it.

What memorabilia would you pay $10 million for?

HeroesEver wanted to get a hold of one of Isaac's paintings? If so, you'll be happy to hear that NBC has decided to auction some of the paintings seen on Heroes and made by renowned graphic illustrator Tim Sale.

Vivi Zigler, Executive Vice President NBC Digital Entertainment and New Media, announced in a press release that NBC was proud of this event as it would not only allow fans a chance to own a piece of the hit show but also benefit the Epilepsy Foundation. This foundation was chosen because Heroes' cast member Greg Grunberg is highly involved with it since his son Jake suffers from epilepsy.

Dick Clark to auction off his music memorabilia

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 25th 2006 2:33PM
Dick ClarkWho knew that Dick Clark was a pack rat? It makes sense, considering he's been in the presence of stars ranging from Little Richard to Jay-Z; if I were in his shoes, I'd like to save momentos from those occasions too. But according to this AP article, he also has almost every issue of Life magazine and Playboy ever produced and many years of Fortune magazine. I swear, if he wasn't rich enough to rent out a warehouse to store all of this, he'd be one of those guys buried alive by his stacks of newspapers.

But I guess he's decided to simplify; he's putting a lot of this music memorabilia up for auction, including the first microphone he used on American Bandstand fifty years ago, a Michael Jackson sequined glove, and a bass guitar Paul McCartney played during the Beatles era. It's a no-reserve auction, and most of the profits will go to the T.J. Martell Foundation. No word on if his huge rubber band ball will go on sale, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
