LOS ANGELES - The famous red and white spacesuit worn by Robin Williams in hit 1970s TV series "Mork and Mindy" is up for auction next month, with an estimated price-tag of up to US$20,000 (S$25,377).

Also on sale will be the "egg" in which alien Mork travelled to earth from Ork in the breakthrough series for Williams, who committed suicide last month aged 63.

"This is such a big piece from a pop-culture, television history perspective," Brian Chanes of the Profiles in History auction house told AFP.

"I think that it's going to stand on its own merit, not because of what recently, tragically, happened with Robin," he added.

The Mork spacesuit - thought to be the only one ever to come up for public auction - is estimated to fetch US$15,000-US$20,000, while the egg-spaceship could go for between US$4,000 and US$6,000.

The items will go on sale at an auction of Hollywood memorabilia to be held from October 17-20 at the auction house in Calabasas, northwest of Los Angeles.
