An auction house in Dallas that is usually stocked with fine art and rare baseball cards now holds a six-foot dog mascot suit last seen in Episode 1 of the HBO drama “Succession.” Audiences may recall a nauseated Cousin Greg (Nicholas Braun) putting on the costume and puking through its eyeballs.
The item has been thoroughly cleansed of prop vomit, according to auction staff members, and is now among 236 lots of memorabilia from the show that are up for bidding on the Heritage Auctions website through Saturday.
“Even the eyeholes are mostly clean,” said Robert Wilonsky, a spokesman for the auction house.
“Succession,” the story of ultrawealthy siblings jockeying for control of their father’s media empire, ended its four-season run in May and is up for 27 Emmys on Monday — the most of any series. Fans and collectors wanting to own a piece of the show can bid on luxury suits worn by the show’s cast or the vape pen puffed by its Season 4 antagonist, Lukas Matsson (Alexander Skarsgard). Fear not: It comes with a charger.
The auction’s most coveted item may be a boxy Burberry tote ridiculed by Tom Wambsgans (Matthew Macfadyen) when it is carried to a family event by an interloper. “She’s brought a ludicrously capacious bag,” he says. “What’s even in there, huh? Flat shoes for the subway?”
The bag was viciously memed. On Friday, it was the most viewed lot in the auction, with a leading bid of $4,100.
