For about the price of a new Ford Taurus, you can own the head of a Tyrannosaurus rex.
If a head full of teeth doesn't appeal to you, another pre-historic item -- an Apple Macintosh 128 computer given to Gene Roddenberry -- is available. Or maybe you have to have Sally Field's nun habit from "The Flying Nun," Captain Kirk's pants, or the fake Sig 226 Tony Soprano used to shoot Sal "Big Pussy" Bonpensiero.
That's hardly even a sampling of the 1,100 items up for bid during Profiles in History's Fall 2009 Hollywood memoriabilia auction. The auction includes props, costumes, posters, photography, scripts and original artwork.
One of the more timely items is Michael Jackson's illuminating glove from the 1984 Victory Tour. A search using "jackson" returns 28 results, including clothes worn by The Jackson 5 -- much more appropriate for a Jackson 5 skit than some other ill-conceived choices.
