If you've been bitten by the bug to collect memorabilia from the entertainment industry, get started by checking out these resources.
1. Academy Award Oscars
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences does not allow the award to be sold. Nominees sign an agreement not to sell the award, except to the Academy, who gets first option to buy the trophy for the price of a $1.
This agreement started in 1950, so the only Oscars up for grab are pre-1950 and the price is high.
In the 1990s Michael Jackson bought the best picture Oscar for Gone with the Wind for $1,542,500.
Steven Spielberg has purchased three Oscars over the years, presenting them back to the Academy.
$607,500 for Clark Gable's It Happened One Night
$578,000 for Bette Davis' Jezebel
$207,500 for Bette Davis' Dangerous
