Better Call Saul Props & Costumes Going Up For Auction After Series Finale

Following the series finale on August 15, a ton of props and costumes from Better Call Saul (and Breaking Bad) will be headed to auction. Created by Vince Gilligan, the Breaking Bad universe began in 2008 and centered around Bryan Cranston’s Walter White, a dispirited high school chemistry teacher recently diagnosed with lung cancer who partners with his former student, Aaron Paul’s Jesse Pinkman, to produce crystal meth. The series soon expands to explore the lives of others in Albuquerque’s criminal underworld, including drug kingpin and fast-food chain owner Gustavo Fring and his right-hand man Mike Ehrmantraut.

Premiered in 2015, Better Call Saul follows the evolution of Bob Odenkirk’s Slippin’ Jimmy’ McGill into the two-bit bus-bench lawyer audiences came to know and love from Breaking Bad. The prequel series intertwines backstories for other returning characters like Gus, Mike, and Hector Salamanca, while also introducing new ones like Kim Wexler, Chuck McGill, Howard Hamlin, Nacho Varga, and Lalo Salamanca. The prequel series has now seen the return of Walt and Jesse and is just episodes away from finishing its successful 6-season run.

After Better Call Saul airs its series finale on August 15, fans and collectors will have the chance to own over 250 of the original props, costumes, and set decorations from the Breaking Bad prequel show. The auction will be held on Propstore Auction from August 18 to September 1 with all the proceeds going to charities in Albuquerque. Check out a few of the items that will be up for auction below:

As seen above, a few highlights from the upcoming Better Call Saul auction include Hector’s bell ($3,000-5,000), Jimmy’s “World’s 2nd Best Lawyer” travel mug ($2,000-3,000), the Zafiro tequila bottle and stopper ($1,500-2,500), and Chuck’s space blanket ($600-800). Since many of these items are likely more expensive than the average Better Call Saul fan can afford, simply registering for the auction will enter participants in a drawing to win a free gift pack full of items used during the production of Better Call Saul. Judging by the website, these gift packs appear to include several Los Pollos Hermanos branded items and Saul Goodman business cards.

The Breaking Bad franchise is one that pays close attention to details, which is apparent through its use of props, costumes, and set decorations that add rich details to the fictional universe. The fact that Better Call Saul is auctioning off these items is seemingly an indication they won’t be needing them anymore, as the upcoming series finale will likely spell the end for many of these characters introduced in Breaking Bad, including Jimmy, Mike, and Gus. There are curiously no Kim Wexler items up for sale, meaning a spinoff for Rhea Seehorn’s character might be a real possibility.
