The piece was up for bid at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills. Also being sold were Steve McQueen’s racing jacket two prop pieces worn by John Belushi in The Blues Brothers.
Dorothy’s dress was not the only Wizard of Oz piece being auctioned, as publicity material for the film including keybook, continuity and photos sold for $33,705.
