Lot # 97 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Batman's (Adam West) Batsuit Chest Emblem

Stock #113233

Batman's (Adam West) Batsuit chest emblem from William Dozier's superhero comedy TV series Batman. The iconic emblem was worn on Batman's chest as he and his faithful ward Robin (Burt Ward) defended Gotham from a host of evil villains.From the family collection of noted costume designer Jan Kemp.

Made of stiff paper with an adhesive backing, the emblem features a black bat silhouette on a yellow background. Adam West's Batsuit was a Danskin leotard, and for each day of filming a new sticker emblem would be applied. At the end of the day it would be removed so the leotard could be laundered, and the process would be repeated the next day.

Accompanying the emblem are two autographed photographs. One of the autographed photos shows Adam West as Bruce Wayne and Batman, and features a printed autograph which reads "My best Adam West", and has a handwritten message that says "We fight a helluva, battle, Jan -". The inscription is to Jan Kemp. The other photo is of Burt Ward as Dick Grayson and Robin, and features a printed message that reads "Best Wishes Burt Ward "Robin"".

A black-and-white miniature version of the poster for the 1966 Batman movie is also included, taped to a black card frame. There is some minor wear to the emblem, with some scuffing to the yellow at the top. The two photographs have some creasing and have become slightly warped by age. Accompanied by a detailed letter of provenance from Jan Kemp's daughter. Dimensions (emblem): 9.7 cm x 13 cm (3 3/4" x 5"); (each photograph): 26 cm x 21.5 cm (10 1/4 x 8 1/2"); (picture): 25 cm x 19.5 cm (9 3/4" x 7 3/4")
