The Spock ears of Leonard Nimoy

Two of TV's most famous props -- the original pointy ears worn by Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock on 'Star Trek' -- were auctioned on eBay in 2005. The latex prosthetics were worn by Nimoy on the show at some point between 1966 and 1969; his character, a Vulcan, had pointed rather than rounded ears. Research online suggests that the ears sold for about $7500.
