A selection of iconic costumes and props from the hit HBO drama “Succession” sold for over $600,000 at auction this weekend. The items showcased the show’s signature high-end fashion and lavish lifestyle, giving fans a chance to own a piece of the Roy family dynasty.
Ludicrously Capacious Bag Sells For $18,750
One highlight was a Burberry tote bag carried by Sarah Snook’s character Siobhan “Shiv” Roy. Dubbed the “ludicrously capacious bag” by fans, the tan leather accessory fetched an impressive $18,750 from one determined bidder.
The bag went viral after Shiv used it to carry everything from her laptop to workout gear to an entire turkey wrap. It became a symbol of her attempts to balance her high-powered career with expectations to be a dutiful political wife. The auction gave one superfan the ultimate “power accessory” to emulate Shiv’s style.
Designer Outfits For Each Character Up For Grabs
Outfits actually worn by the show’s stars also attracted interest from fashionistas. A floral Gucci suit donned by Jeremy Strong in his Emmy-winning role as troubled heir Kendall Roy secured $22,000. Meanwhile, a checked Burberry suit worn by Kieran Culkin as snarky youngest son Roman went for $15,000.
For Sarah Snook fans, a green midi dress with gold buttons fetched $11,000. And the show’s costume designer put together special custom outfits representing each core character’s style, allowing buyers to cosplay their favorite member of the ultra-rich family.

Quirky Props Also Attract High Bids
Beyond the fashion pieces, bidders dug deep for props central to beloved plotlines and jokes. Greg Hirsch’s ubiquitous “Fuck Off” travel mug scored $4,250, while his infamous “Sands” theme park costume went for $17,000 after heavy late bidding.
Other silly yet iconic items like a bag of fake “Dick Pic” sausages from Roman’s bachelor party and a hyped “box of documents” from Kenall’s press conference traded hands for solid four-figure sums. The auction provided the ultimate closing chapter for these absurd running gags.
Auction A Testament To Show’s Cultural Impact
The Succession auction brought in over $600,000 total, cementing its status as a TV sensation with a passionate fanbase. While flagship items like Shiv’s bag and Kendall’s suit captured headlines, even minor clothes and trinkets exceeded estimates.
Nate Erickson, lead entertainment consultant at Heritage Auctions, noted the depth of interest across all items: “That says the appeal of the show is more than the main stars and storylines but the whole environment around it.”
Indeed, the exorbitant bidding symbolizes Succession’s cultural footprint. No longer a hidden gem, its cutting writing and acting catapulted it to popularity over four seasons. As the curtain closes, fans are clinging to artifacts from the saga of the hyper-wealthy Roy family.
Future Of Franchise Still Unclear
While the props auction marks a farewell for now, the future of Succession remains nebulous. Creator Jesse Armstrong is playing his cards close to his chest regarding a fifth season or potential spinoffs.
The season four finale leaves plenty of narrative threads to explore. But Armstrong may feel the latest episode makes for a fitting series conclusion, despite fan hopes.
Of course, HBO will likely want more of its prestige drama flagship. The network greenlit season four before season three even finished airing. And the recent viewer surge and award recognition offers momentum for continuation.
Ultimately, Armstrong holds creative control. Fans await his verdict on the Roy family’s fate – which could influence prices for relevant Succession memorabilia in future auctions. For now, season four’s props haul shows the current strength of the franchise.
