Movie buffs now have the chance to own a piece of cinematic history.
In a three-day event starting Tuesday, Profiles in History, the Calabasas, California-based auction house, will drop the hammer on nearly 2,000 items from Hollywood's past.
"Relatively speaking, especially in contrast to the fine art market, I think memorabilia is a bargain," said Brian Chanes, who culled together the items up for auction.

For men of a certain age, seeing Princess Leia in this slave outfit from "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi" is forever burned into their memories.
This costume, made up of several parts used on screen, also incorporates a few extra pieces from the set.
Unfortunately, the item is a little too delicate to play dress up. Chanes said this costume is "the only one we know of outside of the Lucas archives."
The pre-auction estimate is $80,000 to $120,000.
This was the first spaceship seen on screen in the original "Star Wars" movie.
Measuring roughly 16 inches with working lights on the back, the "blockade runner" is expected to sell for as much as $300,000.
Overall, Chanes said he's seen "Star Wars" items increase "exponentially" over the years.
Despite so many rebel fleet troopers wearing these helmets in the original "Star Wars," very few of them still exist.
That's because movies often repurpose these types of items, and take them apart to be used them for other science fiction movies, Chanes said.
This rare piece, the first of its kind to reach public auction, is expected to sell for up to $250,000.
Authenticating this "Indiana Jones" movie prop was easy — it comes with a letter from "Jones" himself. Actor Harrison Ford used this whip in the film's first three installments.
Estimated hammer price is $100,000 to $150,000.
Actor Richard Dreyfuss used this diver's light in the original "Jaws" movie. Acquired by Chanes from the film's propmaster, it's expected to fetch up to $2,500.
Eyyy! This Triumph motorcycle was one of three used by "The Fonz" during the 10-year run of TV classic "Happy Days." (The other two went missing or were stolen.)
If you want to "sit on it," it will likely cost you between $100,000 to $150,000.
This 1958 Chevy Impala Sport Coupe was used in 1973's "American Graffiti," making it one of the most famous cars in cinema history.
This is the first time the vehicle has been up for sale since the movie hit the big screen. It's expected to carry a price tag of up to $1.2 million.
This puppet from the "Ted" movies was used for the actors' reference. It's one of only two Ted figures made for the film, and is expected to sell for between $12,000 and $15,000.
The late Evel Knievel played himself in a 1977 action film called "Viva Knievel!" in which he rode this bike, the Stratocycle.
The motorcycle was later represented by a popular kids toy. This full-size, modified Harley-Davidson is expected fetch up to $300,000.
This may be the most famous harpoon gun that's ever existed. Used by Robert Shaw's "Quint" in "Jaws," it still has some production blood on it.
Chanes said that when it comes to movie prop auctions, "Weapons are very popular. Be it knives, phasers, lightsabers — people love it."
The pre-auction estimate for the harpoon is $60,000 to $80,000.
For $50,000 you can get this knockout pair of boots from the "Rocky" Movies. The Nike boots come with a set of boxing gloves (not shown).
Both were used during the production of "Rocky II" and "Rocky III" and are autographed by Sylvester Stallone.
"This is probably the most important costume in TV history," Chanes said of this Superman get-up, worn by George Reeves in "Adventures of Superman."
Because the show was originally filmed in black and white, the suit was made from gray and brown wool. This one also comes with the original muscle suit and flying mechanism Reeves used to play the Man of Steel.
This suit's price is expected to fly up to $150,000.
