5 Expensive Pieces of Memorabilia You Can Buy

Why buy a regular house or a regular chair when, for a "small" premium, you can buy one from your favorite movie or television show? Studios often auction off props once production is over, allowing consumers to own a piece of entertainment memorabilia. Fans' reasons for purchasing range from an item's unique intrinsic value, to capitalizing on its potential value appreciation, to simply because it's just plain awesome. Depending on the significance of the movie or show, items can be valued up to millions of dollars at auction, leaving some fans out in the rain. However, here are five notable pieces of memorabilia that, if you stave off retirement or having your first child, you can potentially afford.
