Looks Like The Garage Sale Was A Success

23 Aug

Holy crap! Faraday’s notebook for $27,500!

We were watching it on the internet. I pushed the bid button once. But I knew I wasn’t going to compete for this stuff. Congrats if you got something. But don’t send it to me to get signed because it might “get lost in the mail.”

    Who needs a notebook for 27 k? I got my memories of moments of suspense, of cry and of laughter when watching the show and I got your blog! Both come for free and are yet priceless. Thanks for that, Jorge!

    Oh my word. I’m glad I didn’t get in on the excitement. I might have spent far more than expected.😮

    I would love to have seen the auction in action! I wonder if, after the success, there will be others? I imagine that the bidding paddle (used in the auction that Widmore went to) would be an ironic item to win in an auction!

    Season 6 drops tomorrow! Does that mean the final JGB podcast is not far behind?

    : ) P

    boggles the mind how much some of the stuff went for. would of loved to have some of the props, but jesus, I’d need to be pretty wealthy first! I guess they will be nice decorating pieces in people’s mansions.

    Would love to know how much that huge section of the Oceanic plane went for. And how much it would take to buy Emilie De Ravin.🙂

    We were there for the whole thing! (Ended at 3AM, seriously). I got one of Ben’s bags and journals for pretty cheap, comparatively. One of my friend’s got your Dad’s sunglasses for $200! It was a lot of fun. Great to see Beth there too!

    Please tell me you got the CAMARO or the DHARMA VAN!!!!

  8. amber August 23, 2010 at 11:56 am #

    So what did you bid on?

  9. jaime August 23, 2010 at 12:13 pm #

    Did you see the Darma Van sold for almost $50,000.00? Crazy!

  10. Ali M. August 23, 2010 at 12:36 pm #

    I CANNOT believe how much stuff went for. Good to know it all goes to charity🙂

  11. jackie August 23, 2010 at 12:43 pm #

    I wanted to bid..but the prices were way out of my league..but glad they made good money.

    Jorge,

    Lost in the mail? Sounds like a sequel. Instead of the Dharma van how would you like driving that cool postal truck (no dig at postal workers).

    The auction – wow, i can’t even afford thinking about that stuff!😉 I remember buying things at Farscape’s auction- cos they made it fan-cheap. Ydon’t even need cable for Lost, which rocked.
    I got a freebie for you, tho- the hubby did a recording in Chicago you’d probably like- he’s got it free on the jonesjazz.com site. If you get to Vegas, remember to hit me up for tix to hear him at Penn & Teller.

    There were many things I would have liked to purchase (you know, if I had money to spare like Bill Gates), but Daniel’s journal was at the top of my list. I knew from the start that it would be one of the — if not THE — highest selling items. I watched hours of the auction online. It was fun to watch — and it makes me feel good about shelling out $150 for the complete series DVDs when it comes out tomorrow!😀

    I was surprised that John Locke’s suicide note (about a dozen words scribbled on a sheet of notebook paper) went for $8,000 — $500 more than Locke’s compass ($8,000)!

    Oh, and the other thing I was glad to see bring in so much money was Hurley’s “Empire Strikes Back” rewrite notebooks. $4,750! How much was written in those books, and did you write it all?

      Oops — meant to type that the letter went for $8,500…

  15. Sars August 23, 2010 at 4:25 pm #

    Was the journal the highest any of the bids got? We watched that one live and took a screen shot. I hope the LOST nerd who bought it finds out lots of secrets. I’m kind of wishing I would’ve registered to bid instead of buying a new car, but I think I made the wise decision.🙂

  16. Irish Girl August 23, 2010 at 6:18 pm #

    I hope they at least gave you Hurley’s golf course flag. 🙂

    Would have loved to get a piece of Lost memorbilia, wow 27 k for a notebook! I love your humor-Just watched some more Lost and it comes through on the show too!Love keepin up with your posts- its interesting to see what you are up to! Thanks for continuing your page…lookin forward to see what your next endeavors are!

  18. Giulia August 24, 2010 at 12:47 am #

    Did you actually get to keep anything from the set?

  19. Eglantine August 24, 2010 at 6:41 am #

    We tried bidding on several items since our house is full of Lost fans, but we were outbid every time. It got pretty depressing. Congrats to those who managed to buy something though.

    Hey Jorge😉,

    we were watching it on the inernet too,what a challenge for worlwide bidders,fans to stay online or at the event more than 26 hours for the 2 days auction.congrats to them.

    We were looking (with a price limit) for one prop from the coolest DUDE in the show and we ended with Hurley’s costume from “the numbers” episode.That’s the funniest episode among your whole centrics,we watched it several times and had so much good memories and laughters.As soon as the package will show up here in France,no way to get it lost in the mail by sending it back to the US lol but we hope to get it signed by you for your next trip in the country.

    ps:where ended your gold watch,ring,necklace bling bling and the yellow hummer….lol

    greetings
    stef & mag

    It wasn’t too bad around 1am on Day 2, when the hangar lost internet connectivity, and the ‘net bidders had to drop out. Things got really reasonable then. I was actually able to buy something. LOL

    Jorge, I was really pulling for you to get those golf flags!

  24. Marnie August 24, 2010 at 7:16 pm #

    So cool that it’s all for charity!
    I would’ve bid on your Empire script.;-)

    Can’t wait to see you in some new adventure (or comedy, drama, reality, etc.) All the best!

    I got a nice print last year. Featuring Hurley and the numbers. Small run . . may be worth summat in the future.

  26. AnnR August 25, 2010 at 10:13 am #

    I watched a lot of it on-line. I would have loved to get that Taweret statue. Most items were way out of sight. It was sad to see all those things sold off to strangers far far away from the “island”. Did you get anything Jorge?
    THe gold course flag did not go up for bid? I noticed that some items were skipped as they were probably sold before the auction.

  27. Erin August 28, 2010 at 7:27 pm #

    I couldn’t believe it when I saw that! Dan’s notebook was one of the things I really would’ve loved to bid on, but it’s about a hundred times too rich for my blood. But I’m quite happy with my lotto ticket (from the action figure) that you signed for me! Doesn’t get much cooler than that!😎

  28. John in PDX August 31, 2010 at 10:16 pm #

    I bid on quite of few things, but quickly was outbid. My limit was 1K. I did end up getting a prop from the show though, the hatch from the submarine….
