Posted by at 5:15 pm on April 16, 2012

This past weekend, Profiles in History, run by Joe Maddalena, held their Captain America: The First Avenger auction at the Chicago Entertainment and Comic Expo (C2E2). Over 200 people attended the live auction and it was an amazing success. Out of the 219 lots offered for sale, 217 sold which is a 99% sale sell through. Sales grossed 1.1 million dollars.

Some of the highlights include the Captain America Hero Costume, which sold for $228,000, pictured left. This is the complete hero costume worn in the ultimate incarnation of Captain America and was used in most graphic advertising and promotional materials for the film.

The original full-scale screen-used Mark II “Autopsy” suit from Iron Man 2 went for $132,000 and is pictured right.

Profiles in History have also been selected to handle the sale of the Dreier Collection. Due to the size, scope and significance of the Dreier Collection, it will take nearly two years and several auctions to offer all of the material. The first installment of the Dreier Collection will be sold in July 2012.

Some of the highlights of this collection include:

  • The most significant Christopher Reeve “Superman” collection in private hands
  • Michael Jackson’s signature leather costume from his “Bad” tour
  • The most important Willy Wonka collection extant
  • Signature Costumes and Props from such legendary films as Star Trek, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, X-Men, Batman, Austin Powers

According to Joe Maddalena, the importance of the Dreier Collection cannot be overstated. “This is a monumental offering, and it is a collection that commands every adjective you can think of – impeccable, amazing, phenomenal, diverse, top quality. Even the most seasoned collector will be blown away by the collection’s depth, breadth and level of importance.”
