Estelle Getty’s 1987 Emmy for supporting comedy actress for her work in "The Golden Girls" was put up for sale on eBay last week and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences wants it removed, reports Variety.
The statuette is being offered by a seller of fine art, with an initial asking price of $15,000. As of this morning (Tuesday, Sept. 21, 2009), there were no bids.
Academy policy is that if honorees don’t want the statue anymore it must be returned. Getty died last year.
