Original Film Prop Spiked Louisville Slugger Baseball Bat From Ellis Props - As Used in Hollywood Movie Escape from L.A.

Regular price $395.00

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This real bat with spikes was used in the 1994 Hollywood film Escape from LA, which is the 1996 sequel to 1981's Escape from New York. John Carpenter returned as director and Kurt Russell stars once again as Snake Plissken, who is sent into the prison island of Los Angeles to retrieve a device stolen by the daughter of the President of the United States that is the key to activating a powerful doomsday weapon.

This prop was acquired from the Ellis Props and Graphics liquidation auction. Ellis was the oldest and the largest Prop House in California until its liquidation auctions in late 1999 and early 2000. The original Eliis Auction label is still on the bat and identifies it as a bat from the film. It reads:

ELLIS PROPS AUCTION DAY 5
LOT 5947
QTY: 3 (only one)
PROP SPIKE CLUBS USED IN PRODUCTION OF
“ESCAPE FROM LA”

The vast Ellis collection was acquired beginning in 1908, when a pawn shop, Ellis Mercantile, began renting merchandise to early filmmakers. According to Ellis Props, it began when a studio employee wanted to buy a glass eye. The pawn shop decided to rent it in case the owner returned, and it continued the practice with other items.

Ellis Props & Graphics closed after 92 years in business because rentals were declining as film and TV production increasingly left Los Angeles, California. The vast collection was acquired over the years since 1908, when a pawn shop, Ellis Mercantile, began renting merchandise to early filmmakers. According to Ellis Props, it all began when a studio employee wanted to buy a glass eye, but the pawn shop decided to only rent it in case the owner returned.
