This was a live auction. The organizers anticipated having over 1,000 lots. The catalog was sorted in season order (1-6) and was broken into lots, each consisting of one prop or costume or a grouping of items in episode order. Each lot had its own estimate which reflects the auction pre-sale range price range, but as in many auctions, many eventual selling prices exceeded the estimates.
Anyone in the world was able to bid, with 4 options: live in-person, telephone, absentee, and Internet.
Full color, 300+ page, printed catalogs were available for purchase. An online version was also available for viewing and downloading.
