Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) said its new Entertainment Collectibles Store will start selling as many as 350,000 items from leading entertainment, including movies, recording and TV, such as costumes, props and other memorabilia.

The Seattle e-retailer said items include Bradley Cooper’s running costume from “Silver Linings Playbook” and the screen-used copy of “Farewell to Arms” in the film, which has been nominated for eight Academy Awards.

“There is something for everyone,” Peter Faricy, VP for Amazon Marketplace, said.

The new Amazon store has items from private Premiere Props, of El Segundo, Calif., which has sold props from more than 500 movies since 2001 and claims to be the top online vendor of movie memorabilia.

“Amazon provides an incredible platform for us to engage movie and television fans and collectors,” Daniel Levin, executive VP of Premiere Props, said.

Items are available from the likes of the Beatles, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and James Dean, as well as from the “Star Wars” series, “The Hobbit” and “The Twilight Saga,” Amazon said.

Amazon previously reported fourth-quarter revenue rose 21 percent to $21.27 billion.

Shares of Amazon rose $4.66 to close at $269.75 in Tuesday trading.
