“Lost” fans bid thousands for Dharma van, authentic memorabilia

By Sean O’Connell One lucky “Lost” fan will be driving to work in an authentic Dharma Initiative van. They paid a pretty penny — $47,500 – for the right to do so.

The Dharma van earned the highest bid from “Lost” fans during a two-day, official show auction, conducted by Profiles in History in partnership with ABC Studios.

As countless fans began snatching Blu-ray copies of the show’s final season – which hits store shelves today on DVD and Blu-ray – more dedicated fans were bidding to take home memorable pieces of the wildly popular show.

At $47,500, the Dharma van was the event’s clear winner. A dial mechanism from Jacob’s lighthouse, seen in the final season, went for $27,500, while the frozen donkey wheel (which I would love to have) nabbed $22,500.
