If you’ve always wanted to own a famous piece of movie or television history, here’s your chance.

More than 570 pieces of silver screen and TV memorabilia will be sold to the highest bidder in late September. They include:

The Prop Store is holding a live auction featuring “Treasures From the World of Film and Television” in London on Sept. 27.

But you don’t have to go to England to see the Prop Store’s impressive collection of entertainment memorabilia. Click here to see a complete list of items included in the Sept. 27 auction.

You can bid on the items in person, via phone or through the Prop Store’s online auction platform.

The Batpod — the truck-flipping motorcycle featured in “The Dark Knight Rises” — is expected to sell for $80,000 to $105,000 in “non-functional ‘rolling only’ condition” with no fluids, battery, fuel tank or throttle controls. Tim Lawes, general manager of the Prop Store, tells Bloomberg:

“If somebody wants to make it work at a later stage then they probably can. Most of the bits are already there.”

The props, costumes and production materials included in the auction are from 160 well-known television shows and films, including “Jaws,” “The X-Files,” “The Goonies” and “Jurassic Park.”
