'The Wizard Of Oz' Works Its Magic On 'Hollywood Treasure': Judy Garland's Ruby Slippers Sell For $2 Million (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

On the season premiere of "Hollywood Treasure" (Tue., 10 p.m. ET on Syfy) auctioneer Joe Maddalena got his hands on a legendary piece of Hollywood history: Judy Garland's ruby slippers from "The Wizard of Oz."

Although four pairs of the slippers are known to exist, these were the actual ones that Garland clicked her heels in during the "there's no place like home" scene at the end of the movie.

The slippers had "Judy Garland" written in the lining and, most excitingly of all, "what appear to be very slight circular scuff marks. And that would of course be from when Judy -- clicking her heels."

How much for the iconic footwear? A whopping $2 million.
