Mel Gibson’s Braveheart tartan among iconic Hollywood memorabilia on sale next month

The iconic wedding tartan worn by Mel Gibson and screen wife Catherine McCormack in the 1995 classic Braveheart is among a host of rare Hollywood items going up for sale at auction next month.

Propstore has announced its first Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction of 2024, with items on offer expected to fetch over $8m, from March 12-14.

More than 1,700 iconic lots are expected to be sold – including William Wallace (Mel Gibson) and Murron MacClannough’s (Catherine McCormack) wedding tartan, which is expected to fetch $12,000 – $24,000.

Also of Scottish note, Sean Connery’s suit from You Only Live Twice is given an estimated price of $40,000-$80,000.

Other items on sale include a stormtrooper helmet from Return of the Jedi (est. $150,000-200,000), ‘Captain America’ Wyatt’s (Peter Fonda) Panhead Chopper Motorcycle from Easy Rider ($200,000 – $400,000) and star lot, a C3PO head, also from Return of the Jedi, which is expected to fetch up to $1m.

Those on a more limited budget could target Evil Knievel’s stars ‘n’ stripes leather jacket, which is predicted to go for $8-16,000 or Harry Potter’s wand ($10-20,000), or skip the first two days of the auction altogether and hold off for day three, when the auction will feature over 600 no reserve items with a starting bid of only $100.

Brandon Alinger, COO of Propstore, said: “Propstore is excited to launch our 2024 Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction series with 1,700 lots of superb content in our March sale.

“The auction has a strong showing of the usual crowd-favourite titles such as Indiana Jones and Blade Runner, and also contains a great spread of vintage material from names like Charlie Chaplin, Groucho Marx, Audrey Hepburn, Charlton Heston, and many more. For entry-level collectors, the third day of the auction are all offered in a ‘no reserve’ format meaning the lots are highly accessible.

“The top pieces will be offered on day one of the auction and bidding will take place live from the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, in addition to being available via telephone and online.”
