Your sci- fi memorabilia valued by the experts from auctioneers Vectis
Jonathan Hodgson sent us a photo of his promotional standees from Ralph Bakshi’s 1978 Lord Of The Rings. “I was starting work at a school in 1995 when I saw a load of posters and things relating to various books from some old cupboards being taken out to the skip. These were the most fascinating items!”
ADAM CARTER OF VECTIS SAYS: “You would be amazed at the number of stories I have heard about schools disposing of items of worth, ranging from film memorabilia to literature.
“The standees are very rare, but that does not transform to high value, unfortunately. However, you do have the two main characters, Frodo Baggins and Gandalf, so I would estimate these at £ 20- 30 as a pair. Interestingly, Bakshi auctioned off many animation cels from the film around the time Peter Jackson released his trilogy, so if you have any of these keep hold of them for the 40th anniversary in 2018.”
