HBO ends for good Sunday night, but you can take a piece (or two or many) of the show home. Hollywood collectibles auction site Screenbid is auctioning off more than a thousand set pieces, clothing items and props from across all six seasons of the Emmy-winning show about computer geeks trying to make it in Northern California’s global tech hub.
The items range from smaller goods like Richard Hendricks’ official Pied Piper company badge, Bertram Gilfoyle’s skull keychain and Satan iPhone case and Big Head’s bike helmet, all the way up to bigger grabs like the Hacker Hostel ping-pong table and a working Samsung UHD Monitor Dinesh Chugtai used in the season 6 premiere to email Gabe the latest “tech specs” for the fifth time.
You could practically fit yourself a new wardrobe with all the shirts on offer here.
There’s a pink and gray striped polo shirt Kumail Nanjiani wore as Dinesh in the season 5 finale, Brooks Brothers button-down shirts worn by Zach Woods as Jared Dunn and a good selection of T-shirts donned by T.J. Miller while playing dot-com millionaire Erlich Bachman. These include a gray Aviato T-shirt, a blue binary “bitcoin” T-shirt and a Space Invaders tee.
Part of the proceeds from the auction will support St. Joseph Center’s Codetalk program, a tuition-free digital web tech job training program for low income, underemployed and underserved women in LA County.
Bidding starts Sunday, Dec. 8 at 11 p.m. PT just as the cold, reality sets in that the Gavin Belson and the Pied Piper guys won’t be living on in new episodes. At least they can endure in Richard’s frantically scribbled handwritten notes on middle-out compression, the Weissman score and cloud storage.
The auction begins closing on Dec. 20, and ends Dec. 21. HBO will provide an official Studio Certificate of Authenticity for all items sold. Yes, even Jian-Yang’s underwear.
