'Wolverine' Hugh Jackman X-Men Coat Goes On Auction Block


A leather jacket worn by Hugh Jackman in the X-MEN franchise is expected to fetch $20,000 (£10,000) when it is sold at auction.

The coat will go under the hammer alongside Jackman's Van Helsing costume at the latest Profiles in History auction, which will take place on 31 July and 1 August (08) in California.

The auction, touted as "the ultimate superhero costume and prop auction," will be held on July 31 and Aug. 1.

In addition to the "Star Wars" T.I.E. Fighter, other props include a full-scale animatronic male Velociraptor from "Jurassic Park III," a 'Winkie' spear from "The Wizard of Oz," a hero prop shotgun from "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," a 'Jack Skellington' filming miniature house from "The Nightmare Before Christmas."

Other items up for sale include Ben Affleck's suit from the 2003 movie Daredevil, Tobey Maguire's 'Spider-Man' and Kirsten Dunst's 'Mary Jane' costumes from "Spider-Man" and "Spider-Man 2," the Grail Cup from "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade", and a miniature model of an original TIE fighter from Star Wars: A New Hope.

Profiles In History experts expect the "Star Wars" T.I.E. Fighter to attract the most attention, listed as likely to receive between $150,000 and $200,000, but possibly as much as $300,000 to $400,000. (c) tPC
