Los Angeles: Superman's very first movie cape was sold for nearly USD 200,000 Monday alongside a collection of rare Hollywood memorabilia, the auction house said.

The prop from Christopher Reeve's "Superman", which went for USD 193,750, headlined Monday's sale of about 400 cinephile items at Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles.

 

Only six capes in total were used while shooting the film, which came out in 1978.

Multiple costumes from "Star Trek" also found buyers. These included the uniform worn by Patrick Stewart for his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, which sold for USD 28,800.

Leonard Nimoy's Romulan costume from "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" sold for USD 20,000.

Dan Akroyd's jumpsuit from "Ghostbusters II" also went up for auction and was sold for USD 32,000, according to Julien's Auctions, which specializes in Hollywood collections and memorabilia.

Although it was originally announced as an auction headline item, the pipe of Bilbo Baggins, played by Ian Holm in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, was not sold at the auction.
