    My feeling is that they're overpriced just based on them having belonged to Iacovelli. Don't know if they'll come down after a few relistings or not. It seems pretty obvious that the seller isn't really familiar with the show (witness upside down ranger patch). The BIN price for the de-listed Ikarra box was straight off of JMS' final bid for the Line Medal. Once he's got a Letter of Authenticity I think it'll probably sell - but not for more than $10k, I think. Genious that he is, Iacovelli isn't JMS.

    https://www.ebay.com/str/Gnumaginati...at=28401568017 is other items from the seller, apparently from John Iacovelli. I'd sorta like a script but I don't think I'd spring that much for something I've already got from the set.

    ETA: There are some gaping issues I've got with some listings. This one doesn't mention what the box is made from. The sheet music doesn't say which season the theme is from. The 'In the Beginning' script doesn't mention that it's not a complete script, only the blue revisions and doesn't say how many actual pages. And that's ignoring the fact that he got the episode title for the prop wrong. Not saying that these aren't really Iacovellis things, he actually posted about doing so on FB. Just strikes me as careless.

    SO yeah I've also noticed some items are mis-titled,

    And can someone explain this one.....

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Babylon-5-I...QAAOSw-RNd008R

    Is this the pictures he took of the sets after he designed them? I assume that is what they are, but not 100%.

    And why are the t-shirt prices sooooooo high?! It is because they would actually fit me as opposed to all the other tshirts that have been on eBay the last 20 years that are never bigger than LARGE?!?!?!?!?!?!

    There is some stuff I would LOVE to have, but it seems VERY high even if it is somewhat a piece of the shows history, but it seems most of this stuff is not connected to Iacovelli.

    Not worth another thread so putting this here. Just scored a new - to me - JMS script. It's his first script for Murder, She Wrote, "Night Fears". Already there are familiar names.

    In other news, somebody's selling Garibladi's trash! An empty Afterburner Whiskey bottle is up for auction for way too much money.

In the case of the auction, it looks like the label has fallen off or been removed (as some have done on mine). Here's a pic of the one I bought from a crew member for comparison.
    Thanks for the suggestions Jan

    It would be very nice to have the script from Comes the Inquisitor. But alas, not for that price
    Is there a way to be sure that it is a genuine script your buying, by the way?

    Another JMS script from the same seller - this one a "Murder, She Wrote" script. From the description, it may be the first one JMS wrote for the show, given what he said in "Becoming Superman".

    Great Scott Batman! Those scripts are expensive. Is that what scrips go for these days? If so I am sad to hear it. I have hoped to find a B5 script some day, but prices around the 200-300$ levels are just bananas.

    Bet that is someone who was in Galveston 2014.

    ETA: Confirmed it's a reproduction from the seller. Only stated as such in the 'category' way up at the top of the page. I'm not familiar with the seller or if it comes with authentication but this is cool.
    It is pure wool and fully lined with functional interior pockets. It fits a 44" chest and has 24" sleeves. The grey mock turtle neck shirt is an XL.

    That's changed since I saw them this morning. Then, they were at the full $300.00 each. Thinking about it, though, I recall paying as much as $75.00 for a couple before I found the crew member who sold me his collection. So I suppose after 20+ years that's not *too* bad. Maybe. I guess...

    Some original, set-used scripts. Seem overpriced to me but as time goes on, they'll be harder to find. Some good episodes here, too.

    The ones I've had for years haven't faded. No sunlight exposure. I'm betting these were unsold items found abandoned somewhere.
