Emmy and Golden Globe winner Boardwalk Empire ran for 5 seasons on HBO and now its time for the auction! Auctioneer Screenbid will be selling off a variety of screen used props and wardrobe items from the hit series January 25-29th 2015. The auction is presently up for viewing at Screenbid.com and features a total of 526 lots. One thing I noticed is that HBO will be issuing the Certificate of Authenticity themselves which is a plus for collectors.
Winning bids of the Boardwalk Empire will have a standard 24 percent buyers premium added on to the final price along with a mandatory 14.95 handling fee along with shipping costs. Screenbid ships items typically within 14 days of payment.
About Boardwalk Empire::
It was a time of change: women gained the right to vote, broadcast radio spread the news, young people ruled the world, and criminals became rich trafficking in illegal alcohol.
On the beach in southern New Jersey sits Atlantic City, a spectacular resort known as “The World’s Playground,” a place where rules don’t apply. Massive hotels line its famous Boardwalk, along with nightclubs, amusement piers and entertainment to rival Broadway. For a few dollars, a working man can get away and live like a king — legally or illegally.
The undisputed ruler of Atlantic City is Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, (Steve Buscemi) a political fixer and backroom dealer who is equal parts politician and gangster and equally comfortable in either role. Because of its strategic location on the seaboard, the town is a hub of activity for rum-runners, minutes from Philadelphia, hours from New York City and a day’s drive from Chicago. And Nucky Thompson takes full advantage.
Nucky has carved out a niche for himself as the man to see for any illegal alcohol. He is an equal opportunity gangster, doing business with Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza), Al Capone (Stephen Graham), and Johnny Torrio (Greg Antonacci). He has survived all comers.
