The Perfect Gift for the Person Who Has Everything

March 10, 2008 5:31 PM

Got a tax rebate check burning a hole in your pocket? Instead of being a sap and saving it, why not stimulate the economy by buying massive amounts of pop culture knick-knacks?

For instance, Guernsey’s Auction House is prepping its Pugliese Pop Culture Collection for the block next week.

Bust

What well-respected person about town wouldn’t want Batman’s Shakespeare bust? You can set up the button in the neck to fire off a large cannon full of hundred-dollar bills.

The Flying Nun

Sally Field’s “Flying Nun” costume?

Maltese Falcon

Or go for the gusto and buy the Maltese Falcon. A mere estimated bid of $500,000 to $800,000 stands between you and something once held by Humphrey Bogart.

The auction is set to start Saturday, March 15.
