The auctioneer will not specifically identify bids placed on behalf of the consignor to protect the reserve. Bidding increments se registration page.
Absentee Bids
If you cannot attend an auction, it is possible to bid by other means. The most common is the absentee bid, sometimes called an “order bid.” Absentee bids are written instructions from you directing Profiles in History to bid for you on one or more lots up to a maximum amount you specify for each lot. Profiles in History staff will execute your absentee bid as reasonably as possible, taking into account the reserve price and other bids.There is no charge for this service. If identical bids are submitted by two or more parties, the first bid received by Profiles in History will take preference.The auctioneer may execute bids for absentee bidders directly from the podium, clearly identifying these as order bids. Absentee Bid Forms are available in the back of every auction catalog and also may be obtained at any Profiles in History location. See Conditions of Sale and Registration Form for absentee bid details.
Telephone Bids
It is also possible to bid by telephone if you cannot attend an auction. Arrangements should be confirmed at least one day in advance of the sale with Profiles in History at (310) 859-7701. Profiles in History staff will execute telephone bids from designated areas in the salesroom. See Conditions of Sale and Registration Form for telephone bid details.
Internet Bids
Profiles in History is pleased to offer live Internet bidding at To ensure proper registra- tion, those Bidders intending to bid via the Internet must visit this site and register accordingly at least one full day prior to the actual auction. Please be aware that there is a minimum 3-second delay in the audio and visual feeds, which may confuse some bidders. If you have questions about this feature, please call Profiles in History well in advance of the auction.Winning bidders will be notified by Profiles in History. Profiles in History is not and can- not be responsible or liable for any problems, delays, or any other issues or problems resulting out of use of the Internet generally or specifically, including but not limited to transmission, execution or processing of bids.
PLEASE NOTE: On some occasions beyond the control of Profiles in History, the Internet bid software or the Internet itself may not physically keep up with the pace of the auction. In order to help avoid disappointment, Profiles in History recommends placing a realistic absentee bid now. Occasionally the auctioneer may eliminate or reject an internet live bid, and the auctioneer may also reopen a lot after the close of the internet live bidding (typically but not always because a floor bid or a telephone bid was missed), and your bid may be rejected even if you were shown to be the winning bidder. By bidding via the internet, you acknowledge and agree that Profiles in History may award the lot to another bidder at its sole and final discretion under the circumstances described above or under any other reasonable circumstances. Since the internet bids are not shown to Profiles in History until Profiles in History opens the lot on the floor, Profiles in History treats those bids the same as floor or telephone bids. In most cases, however, the floor and/or telephone responds before the internet bid is presented, due to live Internet bid software or Internet lag time, so for consis- tency it is Profiles in History’s policy that floor bids and telephone bids are always considered first over internet bids with floor bids being considered before telephone bids. Also please note that all Profiles in History lots pur- chased through the Internet carry a 28% Buyer’s Premium. Profiles in History strongly urges the bidder to resolve any questions about these policies or their implementation PRIOR TO BIDDING.
Successful Bids
The fall of the auctioneer’s hammer indicates the final bid. Profiles in History will record the paddle number of the buyer. If your salesroom or absentee bid is successful, you will be notified after the sale by mailed or emailed invoice.
Unsold Lots
If a lot does not reach the reserve, it is bought-in. In other words, it remains unsold and is returned to the consignor.

Catalog images:
Some of the images representing group lots may show replicated photographs to illustrate count. Items are sold “as is” no returns on group lots.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL ITEMS IN THIS CATALOG ARE SOLD IN “AS IS” CONDITION. We do our best to properly describe all materials herein, but normal wear and tear is common due to the fragile nature of the items including their age and use in f ilm and TV productions. We are not responsible for a zipper not working, a piece missing from a prop, etc. Tears or alterations to the fabric or original design of a costume, or broken/missing pieces to a prop are to be expected. While many of the props, costumes and other memorabilia are currently displayable in their present condi- tion, these items may require restoration to be returned to their pre-production/screen- used state. Many of the items featured have been modified and altered for subsequent productions and may differ from the origi- nal production usage. Elements of fabric, sequins, trim, etc. are often replaced for subsequent productions. We recommend you to inspect items of interest in person.
The term “working prop” denotes that the prop was originally made to do something unlike a static prop. This does not mean that the prop works today, although in many circumstances it may be possible to have the prop restored to its original conf iguration.
Due to the recent U.S. Supreme Court deci- sion in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Profiles in History may be required under state law to collect sales tax for the wining bidder’s state. In such cases, the winning bidder’s invoice will reflect the sales tax due based on applicable state and local sales tax rates.
