Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We love auctions. More specifically, we love it when companies like Profiles in History and Prop Store are able to comb personal collections and archives for pieces of Hollywood and science fiction history. The upcoming Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction coming up (from Prop Store) has some absolutely fangirl scream-worthy items listed in the beautiful catalog, including come choice pieces from Robert Zemeckis‘ iconic films “Back To The Future” parts 1 and II.

Marty McFly’s (Michael J. Fox) radiation suit from Robert Zemeckis’ sci-fi adventure film
Back to the Future. McFly wore his radiation suit while making the jump back in time to
the year 1955, and later donned it again as “Darth Vader from Planet Vulcan” to scare
his father George McFly (Crispin Glover) into asking his mother Lorraine Baines (Lea
Thompson) to the “Enchantment Under the Sea” dance.

This fluorescent yellow Tyvek jumpsuit features a zip on the front, Velcro®® fasteners
on the wrists, two pieces of tape affixed to the shoulder blades, and orange highlights
on the ankles. This radiation suit is in excellent overall condition and exhibits signs of
wear and age throughout, including some minor staining and dirt.

The flyers each feature the header “Save the Clock Tower” and a photocopy
of a Hill Valley Telegraph newspaper article headlined “Clock Tower Struck by
Lightning,” written in the wake of the events McFly witnessed in 1955. Filler text
is used for the body of the article, and a plea for donations from the preservation
society is at the bottom. Three flyers are printed on light blue paper and the fourth
is printed on yellow paper. The flyers are in excellent overall condition with minimal
signs of wear. Dimensions: (each) 11” x 8 1/2” (28 cm x 21.5 cm)

Marty McFly’s (Michael J. Fox) left Nike MAG sneaker from Robert Zemeckis’ sci-fi
sequel Back to the Future Part II. Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) gave Marty self-lacing shoes when they time-traveled to the futuristic Hill Valley.

Created by famed Nike shoe designer Tinker Hatfield, the shoe represents a
futuristic take on the classic Nike brand. This high-top sneaker features soft grey
material around the foot, thick white support lining at the ankle, and a blue-flecked
foam appliance around the sole. Also included is a white Nike ankle strap. This
shoe is in fair overall condition with signs of age and wear. It has undergone
significant restoration to the soles, reconstructing cracked, crumbling foam
components. The shoe was missing the “Nike MAG” piece at the heel, and the
back piece to the ankle strap, and has had replicas of those components fitted.

SPORTS ALMANAC” applied to a full glossy paper
