A highlight for real fans

The first is Mr. Spock's iconic blue suit from Star Trek - The Original Series (1966-1969), in which the actor Leonard Nimoy played the human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise. Objects from the older original TV series of the 60s are rare and this suit is estimated at around 70,000 euros.
The second suit on offer is that of Dr. Leonard H. "Bones" McCoy from Paramount's first Star Trek film in 1979. The gray suit was made for actor DeForest Kelley. The estimated value of this costume is around 10,000 euros.
The third item to go under the hammer is the complete burgundy original costume of Captain James T. Kirk from Star Trek V; The Final Frontier (1989) with William Shatner - who has seen the final frontier not only in the movies, but recently in real life when he became the oldest person ever to fly into space aboard Jeff Bezos spaceship ‘Blue Origin’. It is estimated that this object will bring the seller about 50,000 euros.
In addition to the suits, also up for auction is a Type II phaser pistol from “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” and more. Click here to see all the items.
