Despite it’s less-than-spectacular ending, ‘Dexter’ will still go down in history as one of the most popular shows on television. After coming to a close this past fall, fans of Showtime’s killer series are still adamantly singing it’s praises and hoping that a piece of it will stick with them forever. Well, now the public actually can keep a part of the acclaimed antihero played by Michael C. Hall as over 400 props from the show are set to go up for auction this weekend.
A press release went out earlier this week to announce the ‘Dexter: Slice of Props’ auction being held at DexterAuction.com. Lasting until January 11th and 12th, the lots up for grabs span the lifetime of the show and even feature some items closely associated with characters like Detective Joey Quinn, Issak Sirko, Jordan Chase, Brother Sam, Miguel Prado, the Doomsday Killer and many more, along with Morgan family photos and a few sets of prop knives used by the Miami Metro blood spatter analyst himself. Here’s a taste of what sort of props are available:
“Highlights include Dexter and Rita’s couch from season four, a complete 49-page forensic report with Dexter Morgan’s signature, photos and artwork from Dexter’s apartment and house (including photos of Dexter and Debra as kids!), Debra Morgan’s ‘Lieutenant Morgan’ door plaque, and multiple Miami Metro signs including the ubiquitous parking lot sign. There are also assorted lots of items from main characters’ homes. Doomsday Killer artwork from season 6 is also featured in the auction. Prop knife sets are available as well. All were used in the production of Dexter… and that’s only the beginning! Almost every prop is a major prop from the series this time around.”
Though most of these items may run a little high, the ‘Dexter’ fans that are a bit strapped for cash can also get in on the action by purchasing photos from Zach’s studio at the special price of 2 for $50 and 5 for $100. Sets of 3 Jordan Chase seminar mugs are also available for $60.
Whether you decide to splurge on a big-ticket item or settle for the more economic options, you’ll still be supporting the cause that this whole thing was organized for in the first place. A portion of each sale will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. Fans of the show know star Hall recovered from Hodgkin’s lymphoma, so this charity is very near and dear to his heart.
