Over the years, motion pictures have become their own industry and brought in money from not only ticket sales but from the marketing of all sorts of products associated with the movies. Movies, just like many other pastimes also drew in the collectors. Hardcore collector-fans started spending their hard-earned cash on anything and everything associated with films. Even the things discarded after the film-shoots were over could bring in money. Every so often, though, certain items come around that are more valuable, more desired than other things. Props, costumes, even old theatre posters fetch a huge price at auction if they are the right item from the right film. The following is a list of memorabilia from films that have either brought in record prices from collectors, or are still being sought after for purchase.

- The Easy Rider Motorcycle:

Captain America, the chopper ridden by Peter Fonda in Easy Rider, featuring a star-spangled-banner fuel tank and an extra long fork for the front wheels. Two copies of the bike were made, but Peter Fonda’s Captain America model is the only one left. It’s at the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, Iowa.

- Spider-Man Suits:


Four Spidey suits vanished from the set of the first movie. They were eventually traced to a studio security guard. Each costume had been valued at around $50,000. When police searched the guard’s house they also found a $150,000 Batman costume that went missing from the Warner Brother’s lot in 1996.

Worthy? Don't be shellfish... Sharing is caring!

    Great list! I’ve been watching a show that auctions all this type of stuff. I’ve seen a few here on the show. Supposedly there was a Delorean from Back to the Future 3 that was worth up to $1,000,000 to $1,500,000. There was also the Law Giver statue from Planet of the apes that was worth around the same amount
