Auction for Vintage Batman Toy Breaks World Record

Batman Utility Belt

“Holy Utility Belt Batman”


Van Eaton Galleries, the premier animation, Disney and entertainment auction gallery announced new world record which was set at last weekend’s Celebration of Pop Culture auction in Sherman Oaks, CA. 

The most sought after of all 1960s Batman collectibles, the rare Official Batman Utility Belt manufactured by Ideal (1966) sold for a record $16,940 – the highest price ever paid for a vintage Batman toy.

According to the press release, the “complete set of crime fighting equipment” includes a yellow plastic utility belt adjustable to 32” with a Bat-Rocket-Grenade, Bat-Rope with grapple claw, a Bat-Storage Pouch, a Bat-A-Rang, a Dummy Transmitter, a Bat-Signal Flash, Batt-Cuffs, a Bat-Gun Launcher and a Batman Message Sender. As you can expect for such a high price, it was also assembled in the original cardboard box packaging.

The two-day auction also included sales of a Creature from the Black Lagoon One Sheet Poster which sold for $24,200; an original The Jetsons lunchbox which sold for $3,500; a Star Wars Storm Trooper Life Size Display which sold for $7,200; a Disneyland Mailbox Prop which sold for $12,400; a Guardians of the Galaxy Rocket Raccoon Life-Size Replica which sold for $24,200; The Munsters Title Artwork from Pilot Episode sold for $16,300; a Space Patrol Car Tin Toy sold for $9,680; a Mark Twain Life Preserver Prop which sold for $14,500; a Dragon Ball Z Broly Animation Cel which sold for $12,100 and a very rare “Sweet 16” Hot Wheels Story Display which went for $36,300.
