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 youÄôll have them for next Halloween) during Profiles in HistoryÄôs three-day ÄúIcons of HollywoodÄù auction. The collectorÄôs group Äî which has previously auctioned off other Wizard of Oz items including the Cowardly Lion costume (which went for $805,000) and the Wicked WitchÄôs hat ($230,000) Äî has not yet disclosed the location of the event (ÄúSomewhere Over The RainbowÄù doesnÄôt 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?
