NEW YORK (AP) -- If you want to own a pair of ruby red slippers from the ''The Wizard of Oz,'' don't bother clicking your heels together -- just plunk down a lot of cash.
A pristine pair of size 6B ruby slippers made for Judy Garland in ''The Wizard of Oz'' is set to be auctioned off at a Christie's East sale of Hollywood and television memorabilia, auction house officials said. Collectors estimate the pair could sell for $750,000.
Also included in the May 24 auction are the Cowardly Lion's ''Oz'' costume, a Rolls-Royce from the James Bond classic ''Goldfinger'' and Christopher Reeve's Superman capes and body stockings.
Christie's sold a pair of the ''Oz'' slippers in 1988 for $150,000, then a record. They were among seven or eight pairs worn by Miss Garland while filming the 1939 MGM classic.
