No matter how you feel about the controversial finale of Showtime’s Dexter, it remains one of the most popular shows in television history. Now, you can get your hands on some actual props used on the set of the thrilling series in an upcoming auction. Want to bring Dexter (Michael C. Hall) and Rita’s (Julie Benz) couch home with you? Want a prop from Miami Metro, or Deb’s (Jennifer Carpenter) apartment? Maybe you’d like to peruse a 49-page forensic report signed by Dexter himself? Whatever you want, it’s probably up for auction. The auction will be split into two days: January 11th and January 12th. Hit the jump for more.
Head on over to the Dexter auction site to take a look at some of the props up for auction. Here’s the full press release for the Dexter auction:
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.
Hundreds of incredible props will be auctioned off across two groups in the second set of the “DexterSlice of Props Auction” ending January 11th-12th, 2014. 170 of these props are major props, now sorted for browsing ease.
Fans can immediately purchase original set-used photos from Zach’s studio in season 8 or Jordan Chase memorabilia from season 5. Books of crew photos with 20-30+ pages featuring never-before-
seen photos will only ever be visible to the winning bidder!
The biggest Dexter fan will want a very special prop knife engraved with their name along with Dexter Morgan’s signature — only 1/1 will ever be made with the purchase of a $10,000 gift certificate. Gift certificates are also available in increments of $50 and up.
The “Dexter Slice of Props Auction” follows fellow cable TV drama favorite Breaking Bad’s October prop auction, which generated over a million dollars in revenue — with less props than will be ultimately auctioned off in the Dexter auction.
– A portion of each sale will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. (Dexter star Michael C. Hall recovered from the cancer hodgkin’s lymphoma and is a major proponent of the LLS.)
– Props are from Showtime and related studios.
