Just the shoes brought $600,000 (plus an additional $66,000 commission) in a turn-of-the-century auction at Christie's in New York. There are several known pairs of the shoes, by the way. What about the rest of the costume? A collectible of value, to be sure, but the ruby slippers (which were "silver shoes" in the book) are doubtless the prize of the wardrobe.
