What do you want to buy?

It is billed as the best pop culture collection ever assembled — ranging from the gun used to kill the assassin of President John F. Kennedy to the Wicked Witch of the West’s hat from “The Wizard of Oz.”

Collected over the past 25 years by South Florida property developer Anthony Pugliese, the collection, which also includes a whip and the holy grail from “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade,” will be put up for auction next month in Las Vegas…

Also up for grabs is the jacket worn by Beatle John Lennon in the “Imagine” video, the wedding dress worn by pop star Madonna in her “Like a Virgin” video, a “Superman” costume worn by Christopher Reeve, and an Andy Warhol paint brush.

Ettinger said Pugliese was selling his collection, which he had kept in a large vault at his offices, because it “had been his passion, but now has taken a back seat” to a green housing development he was working on.

Other items to be auctioned include a Federal Bureau of Investigation badge that belonged to the bureau’s founder J. Edgar Hoover, a wig worn by Elizabeth Taylor for “Cleopatra,” and the leather jacket worn by actor Brandon Lee when he was accidentally shot and killed while filming “The Crow.”
