Lost fan alert: the show you obsessed over may be over, but its memory lingers on.

Profiles in History, the country's largest movie memorabilia dealer, is auctioning off costumes and set pieces from Lost. They plan to place over 1,000 lots of props, costumes and set pieces from the show under the gavel. For those whose dedication was undiminished by the controversial finale, this might be the time to break the piggy bank.

Some specific pieces include Kate's toy plane, Hurley's winning lottery ticket, Locke's Master Bowie hunting knife, Sawyer's letter, Charlie's "DS" ring and guitar, Mr. Eko's club, The Hatch, Swan Station computer, Desmond's fail safe key, Faraday's journal, Hurley's Camaro, and a DHARMA van. Driving the van around might induce mass paranoia, so be careful.

The auction is live, at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, August 21st and 22nd. A link to more info and a preview of the first 100 items is here.

Those who attend Comic-Con in San Diego, which launches Wednesday, can also see Lost creator J.J. Abrams and Joss Whedon interviewed by EW's Doc Jensen in Hall H. They're not James Cameron and Peter Jackson, last year's master auteurs, but they'll do in a pinch.
