After much deliberation, Tony is finally parting with his prized personal costume collection actually worn by Dick Van Dyke (Caractus Potts) and Gert Frobes (Baron Bomburst). Both are authentic screen-worn costumes and in pristine condition. Tony also owns a running road legal Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car and the Broadway Show touring stage car, and has amassed quite a collection of movie memorabilia. These costumes are just a few fine examples of movie history, which can be yours in the next auction #83.
The auction is being held by Profiles in History in Hollywood, California, on June 29th, 30th, and July 1st, 2016, item #1167 and #1168. Info can be found at www.profilesinhistory.com or by calling (310) 859-7701
