One of Spock’s ears worn by Leonard Nimoy in the first Star Trek film has come up for auction and is expected to fetch up to £700 ($1100).
It may seem completely illogical, but fans of the smash Sixties television show Star Trek are expected to fork out hundreds of pounds for a single piece of memorabilia from the franchise.
For a false ear worn by key character Mr Spock in the first Star Trek feature film has come up for sale – and is expected to fetch a staggering £700.
The silicone latex auricle with its famous pointed end has been carefully preserved, and now Trekkies – as fans of the hit show are known – are queuing up to buy it.
To quote Spock: “It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want”.
