'Breaking Bad' Props to be Auctioned, So Here's Our Wish List
Well, there goes our savings. On Friday, Screenbid, a site that sells items from movies and TV shows, will be auctioning off props from Breaking Bad. Goodbye, retirement plan, hello, Saul's Hello Kitty cell phone!
The auction, which will begin on Sept. 29, the night of the finale, features 250 items from the show. The majority of the props are available to be viewed now, but many won't be released until the final episode airs, for spoilers' sake. The prices range from as low as $10 dollars (a skeleton) to as high as $5,000 (the Vamanos truck), and Screenbid co-founder Bill Block told The New York Times that he estimates that the total collection of props could be sold for more than $2 million.
Breaking Bad fans will salivate over the items for sale, which include everything from Skyler's car to Holly's infant carrier. Unfortunately, though, anyone hoping to buy the famous meth lab RV is going to be out of luck - Sony, the show's producer, is keeping it for their studio tour. Oh, well.
Still, there are a ton of items that we're thinking about buying, if just so that we can say, "we own a piece of Breaking Bad, bitch!" Here are a few of our favorites:
1. Hector Salamanca's bell
