Named after its signature (and now deteriorating) tread that resembled the footprints left behind by astronauts, this 1972 Nike Moon Shoe is a rare relic. Handmade by Geoff Hollister under the direction of Nike co-founder Bill Bowerman, they were worn in that year's Olympic Trials by marathoner Bruce Mortenson, and were one of just a dozen pairs made. The nylon uppers were imported from Japan, the now-iconic Swooshes attached with fishing line, and the outsole cut, glued, and stitched by hand, making these a truly unique piece of sneaker history.
Offered from the collection of Japanese collector Tad Soto, this Nikon 1 Vintage Camera isn't just "vintage": it's the earliest known surviving production Nikon in the world. Just the third ever made — it dates to April, 1948 — it's in remarkably good condition, arriving with its original Nikkor-H 2/5cm lens and matching cap. It also still has its original shutter, original "Made in Occupied Japan" baseplate, and original double-strap carrying case. An extremely rare piece of still-functional photographic history.
It's not quite as recognizable as the Tumbler from which it emerged, but the Batpod is certainly close. Created by The Dark Knight production designer Nathan Crowley and crafted by special-effects supervisor Chris Corbould, this unique motorcycle was one of only six built for use during filming. It has a custom-made chassis, Hoosier racing tires, and a Honda 750 engine, and is outfitted with faux barrels on the front, fiberglass body panels to cover most of the working components, and black foam padding for comfort. It arrives with a metal display stand and Warner Bros. certificate of authenticity, and lest you get any vigilante ideas of your own, it's in "rolling-only" condition, with all its fluids, battery, fuel tank, and throttle controls removed.
George Lazenby's infamous turn as the world's most famous secret agent nearly tanked the franchise. Yet his timepiece might be the most valuable to have ever graced 007's wrist. James Bond's Pre-Daytona Chronograph Watch was worn by Lazenby in On Her Majesty's Secret Service, but that's not its only claim to fame. Eon Productions special ordered it for the film, requesting a red second hand as opposed to the standard stainless steel, as it plays a key role in one of the movie's scenes. As a result, it's the only reference 6238 in the world with this detail, and is made all the more desirable by the fact that it's in excellent condition.
Finding a pair of original Olympic Air Jordan VIIs is hard enough, with their red, white, blue, and gold color scheme and telltale "9" on the back. Finding a pair that was actual worn by His Airness? Nearly impossible, yet that's exactly what Michael Jordan's Dream Team Sneakers are. Sourced by another member of the Dream Team who wished to remain anonymous, these shoes saw a lot of action during the 1992 games in Barcelona, and have the abrasions to prove it. At the time, the shoes were made specifically for Jordan to wear during the games, and while Nike has since reissued the style, none of those had the privilege of launching through the air on the feet of the GOAT as he and his teammates ran roughshod over the rest of the world.
