A number of relics of the US and Soviet space race, including the original NASA designed and constructed spacesuit transporter from the Mobile Biological Isolation System (MBIS), will also be sold off.

"These extraordinary items taken out of the secret archives and vaults from the US, Russia and Cuba will add tremendous value to any collection from world class museums to any history buff's private trove," Darren Julien, President/Chief Executive Officer of Julien's Auctions said in a statement.

"From the entire KGB Espionage Museum collection to obscure US and Soviet space race artefacts to never before seen items from Cuba and their Revolution, these stunning objects offer a fascinating look at the geopolitical, economic and cultural upheaval of that time, whose impact resonates more than ever in this election year."

This collection will be offered for the first time to the public.
