Original Wizard of Oz red slippers in auction

>one of the pairs of the iconic ruby red slippers worn by Judy Garland in the 1939 classic, will be sold to the highest bidder on Dec. 16 (okay, so you’ll have them for next Halloween) during Profiles in History’s three-day “Icons of Hollywood” auction. The collector’s group — which has previously auctioned off other Wizard of Oz items including the Cowardly Lion costume (which went for $805,000) and the Wicked Witch’s hat ($230,000) — has not yet disclosed the location of the event (“Somewhere Over The Rainbow” doesn’t really count, either), but the buzz is already building for this big ticket item in particular.

We’ll definitely watch and report back to see how much these slippers will go for… What would you say? $15,000? $50,000? $100,000?
