1202_thomas_edison_auction_launchThomas Edison wasn't ok with people ripping off his ideas, but this is your chance to rip off a bunch of his old memorabilia -- if you like grossly overpriced electric relics.

Heritage Auction is hawking 5 light bulbs and a socket preserved from the 19th century. Edison Electric used the gear during lawsuits against companies he claimed were copying his bright ideas. Heritage's estimate for the lot is $10,000 ... but expect to spend much more than that conservative number if you're interested.

Not into dead light bulbs? There's also a set of keys to Edison's Menlo Park lab where he invented his first commercial light bulb. Asking price -- $6,000!

You can bid online or in person in Dallas, starting December 3.
