This has been a big month or so for Back To The Future fans. So much to keep up with as the 25th anniversary passed. I have seen Back To The Future in Blu-ray and it looks incredible. I will have a review of the set up on the site soon. The big Hollywood Auction has been taking place tonight which had Bob Gale putting up a ton of items up for bid to help raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. For Back To The Future fans like myself, there was plenty of attention on a lot of incredible items up for bid. Bids went high for items. I was hoping to see the DeLorean go up over $100,000 but it got close. What was amazing to see that Marty's jacket from the future got close to the DeLorean on being the top selling item. The newspaper items would be a major collectible to me and they went from anywhere between $2,000 and $4,000. The bidding on the sports almanac was fast and furious as it went for $15,000. Here is a list of all the items that were sold and their winning bids. No, the picture with this article is not the one that was auctioned.
