Hong Kong: Massive 1,300 piece collection of Supreme merch goes under the hammerMay 25, 2019 at 11:33 (GMT) · Published
A vast collection of 1,300 unusual items from the iconic Supreme skateboard brand has gone up for auction in Hong Kong.
Footage shot on Saturday shows the wide variety of merchandise, all featuring the iconic red background and white letters of the Supreme logo.
Collector Yukio Takahashi is selling his huge collection in an online auction through Sotheby's and the items will be on display in Hong Kong's HART Hall until the auction closes on Tuesday.
The New York based Supreme was established in 1994 and while it is chiefly a skateboard and clothing brand, it has also sold a wide variety of items such as the punching bag, camping equipment and pinball machine seen in the footage, many of which have been extensively resold as cult collectibles.
Takahashi’s collection, dubbed 'The Supreme Vault 1998-2018,' which he started in 2011, ranges from nunchucks, valued at HKD4,500 (€510, $570) to a motorcycle, valued at up to HKD70,000 (€7,950, $8,900). The supreme pinball machine is valued at HKD240,000 (€27,300, $30,500).
