ScreenBid.com to offer items from show starting Sept. 29, but Sony to keep iconic meth RV for studio tours
Startup ScreenBid.com has inked a pact with Sony Pictures Television to auction off some 250 props from the show, starting Sept. 29, after it finishes its run on AMC. But the iconic meth-lab RV from “Breaking Bad” won’t be up for grabs: Sony plans to keep the van for studio tours on its lot.
Starting bids for “Breaking Bad” memorabilia range from $10 for Jesse Pinkman’s DEA mug to $5,000 for Hector “Tio” Salamanca’s wheelchair. Tio’s tarnished bell (“Ding ding ding ding!”) starts at $3,500.
Meanwhile, you’ll have to fork over at least three grand for Mr. White’s copy of Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass” — complete with the inscription, “To my other favorite WW” (the crux of a critical plot development into the final stretch of the show).
The last two eps of the final season of “Breaking Bad” (the second half of season 5) will air on AMC Sept. 22 and 29, respectively. Some of the props from the final two segments aren’t yet in ScreenBid’s auction catalog, according to the New York Times — so as not to cause spoilers.
