Prop Auction companies from the Past
|Newline Cinema Online Auctions
New Line Cinema's online auctions began in the year 2000 and ended several years back. Over the years they have auctioned off items from Terminator 3, Austin Powers, Lord of the Rings, Blade Trinity, and Rush Hour 2 among other productions. They get items directly from the related Time Warner studio company.
Unlike ebay sellers Premiere Props and Hollywood Vault, Newline Auctions off only a small selection of items from a given production rather than multititudes of items from a given production. This results in higher prices typically. Their auctions are online only with email only support. Credit cards on file are charged to the winning bidder immediately after an auction lot ends.
Heather Holmberg Auctions
Prop Auction house in the late 90s, it was the first auction I ever bought a prop from. It operated via a catalog with bidding my mail and bidding by phone. This was before really online bidding live auctions as they are today were popular.
