Update: This auction was canceled. However, the duffel bag was up for bidding in the next auction round one week later.
Launched in January, Propworx’ Battlestar auctions are now in their final month. And there is at least one Kat prop among the few hundred items left to be sold — Louanne “Kat” Katraine’s duffel bag. You can see the bag in this scene from Luciana’s very first BSG episode, “Act of Contrition.”
The latest Kat prop is described as follows:
Pilots bag belonging to Louanne ”Kat” Katraine, one of Galactica’s pilots. Kat is one of Galactica’s best pilots, and eventually becomes CAG. This bag was marked by production as belonging to the character of Kat.
Technical Description: A standard empty duffel bag with various pouches on the side and Velcro patches sewn in the sides, thereby allowing name tags and patches to be affixed and swapped out with ease by the prop department. Duffel bag is gray and black. Gray name tags are stitched in black. Galactica patch is brown colored with black stitching. Measures about 10” x 18”.
This auction will end Sunday, June 21, at 8:30 pm PDT. Judging from the results of similar auctions, Kat’s duffel bag will sell for at least $400, possibly as much as $800. In any case: Good luck to all of you who think about bidding!
