Harry Potter's Hogwarts letter from Sorcerer's Stone to be sold at auction
Die-hard Harry Potter fans can now take their cosplay to the next level with real props from the franchise’s first two films… if you have some Galleons to spare. Memorobilia company Prop Store will be selling two majorly cool props from the movies, as well as a few kind of cool autographed crew gifts, in a movie memorabilia auction later this month in London.
First up is Harry’s (Daniel Radcliffe) Hogwarts letter from Sorcerer’s Stone which fans will remember comes flying in through the mail slot by the hundreds when the Dursleys hide them from their boy wizard nephew. It is estimated to sell for between £3,000 and £5,000 ($2930-$6,550), per Prop Store. The Chamber of Secrets prop going under the hammer is Ron Weasley’s (Rupert Grint) “howler,” another magical letter that transforms into a mouth and yells at him with the voice of his mother. It is estimated to fetch the same amount.
Registration is now open for online bidding, and the auction will be streamed on the company’s site Sept. 26 so fans track their bids in real time. You can find the whole auction’s catalogue here, which also includes a hat and a tote bag signed by Daniel Radcliffe that’s estimated to sell for £400 ($520).
