Mr. Gandolfini personally autographed both the driver’s side sun visor and passenger’s side dashboard of the vehicle after the production ended on the series. The car will be accompanied by photos of the actor signing the vehicle, as well as a copy of the original lease agreement with Soprano Productions Inc. and a signed certificate of authenticity from the CEO of Movie Time Cars verifying its use on the series.
The car will be auctioned on Saturday, June 26th and is available to bidders by phone, proxy, or in person at the live two-day event to be held at Planet Hollywood Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Escalade is currently on public display in front of the resort located in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. The vehicle is being offered from the private collection of The Golden Closet, a respected vendor of iconic memorabilia that has been in operation since 1996.
