HBO to Launch ‘True Blood’ Online Auction with 1,500-Plus Items

Items in the catalog include Eric's Fangtasia throne, Arlene's wedding gown and vampire fangs

As HBO’s “True Blood” ends its seven-season run later this month, the premium cabler is giving fans of the vampire romance-mystery series a chance to own actual props, wardrobe items, set decorations and other memorabilia from the show.

The “True Blood” auction, hosted by ScreenBid, will offer more than 1,500 items from the show. Bidding opens Aug. 20, and is slated to close Aug. 25, the night after the series finale of “True Blood” airs Aug. 24.

Items in the catalog include: Eric Northman’s Fangtasia throne; the contract Macklyn Warlow makes to “own” Sookie Stackhouse; Arlene Fowler Bellefleur’s wedding gown; Merlotte’s Bar and Grill menu; cartons of the Tru Blood beverage; a Fangtasia “No Biting” sign; and vampire fangs (of course).

Last fall, ScreenBid managed the auction for 337 items from “Breaking Bad” on behalf of Sony Pictures Television when the series concluded its run on AMC.

“True Blood” is set in a world where vampires and humans coexist, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood product that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. Series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). “True Blood” was created by Alan Ball (HBO’s “Six Feet Under”) and is executive produced by Brian Buckner. The series is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
