AMC Networks in partnership with Goldin, the leading marketplace for collectibles and memorabilia, announced today that it will auction coveted and one-of-a-kind items from its cultural touchstone television series, The Walking Dead. The exclusive, blockbuster auction features more than 100 iconic items that have been centerpieces of some of the most beloved episodes of the show over the years.
The collection goes on sale today, September 27, just ahead of the broadcast of the final episodes of the smash hit post-apocalyptic series, Sundays at 9/8c on AMC and AMC+. Over the course of its 11-season run, The Walking Dead has earned praise from fans and critics alike. The TWD Universe continues to expand with several successful series currently available, and three more new series set to debut over the next two years.
