This week, I had the chance to accompany the folks at PopCultureGeek.com in previewing a selection of “Captain America: The First Avenger” memorabilia soon to be auctioned at Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo April 14, 2012. The collection is being housed at Profiles in History (Calabasas, California), the world’s largest auctioneer of original Hollywood memorabilia.
More than 200 Marvel collectibles will be auctioned off as part of the event, some – including a full-scale screen-used Mark II “autopsy” suit from “Iron Man 2″ – expecting to fetch up to $80,000.
When we visited the collection, items were already being prepped for shipment to Chicago. Even if you’re not planning to hit Chicago for the event, you can still bid online at http://bid.profilesinhistory.com/auction.aspx?as=22585.

Just for the record, if anyone is looking for a late birthday gift for me, the Steve Rogers dog tags have my name all over them. Figuratively speaking.
