Propstore is one of the world’s leading specialist retailers in movie and television memorabilia. Founded way back in 1998, now with offices based both in London and LA, 2018 is a particularly special year for year for us since this is Propstore’s 20th anniversary….
From humble beginnings as a collector himself, Stephen Lane and his team of like-minded movie enthusiasts found a way of making their interest into a global niche business servicing movie fans all over the world – eventually becoming a major player in the movie memorabilia market. What has always made us different is that we are not only experts in the memorabilia collecting field, but our company is also made up of movie fans who put their passion and love of the silver screen into everything they do.
Every year we have a very special global Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction, which showcase the best of the best in movie and tv memorabilia from around the world. This year our annual auction will take place on 20th September 2018 at the BFI IMAX in London. This event is our opportunity to offer all of our new and existing customers the chance to bid on some very special and iconic items. In this, our 20th anniversary year, we have delighted to have over 600 lots, including some unique and iconic items such as Han Solo’s (Harrison Ford) jacket from The Empire Strikes Back (1980) (with a whopping estimate of £1 million), Marty McFly’s hoverboard from Back To The Future (1989), Indiana Jones’ (Harrison Ford) signature fedora from The Raiders Of The Lost Ark (1981) and a First Order Stormtrooper helmet from The Last Jedi (2017).
