    I would love the cash to bid on a prop from the show but i have a funny feeling the prices are going to go through the roof come auction day...

    Story here... Linky

    Auction listing here... Linky, an auction site focused on the sale of movie and television props, has gone live today with a preview of its first offerings: about 250 items from hit television series “Breaking Bad” , including a dull green Aztek that was used, and abused, by the show’s meth-dealing anti-hero, Walter White.

    “We have Walt’s Aztek and the Monte Carlo,” along with other paraphernalia, said Bill Block, a film producer who is joining entrepreneur Jeffrey A Dash in founding Screenbid. The site, they said, is intended to help studios dispose of props systematically and profitably - props that might otherwise be locked in storage or offered more haphazardly on eBay or Craigslist, sometimes by individuals who simply walked them off a set.

    The “Breaking Bad” auction, they said, was organized with Sony Pictures Entertainment, whose television unit helped produce the show. According to Block and Dash, who spoke by telephone earlier this week, the auction will begin Sept. 29, when the last episode of the series is shown. (Some items will not be listed until then, to protect plot points.) Sony, they said, has set an undisclosed reserve price on items, which will be withheld if the price is not met.

    The price of Hollywood collectibles is notoriously elastic - who’d have figured on the $5,000 bid for 12 cans of beer at the “Lost” auction, run by Profiles in History? But Block reckoned that the “Breaking Bad” props could yield more than $2 million.
