Fans of hit TV show “Dexter” have the opportunity to get their hands on props from the series in an auction this month.

The serial killer drama came to a close with its season eight finale in 2013, and around 400 items connected to the show are now set to go under the hammer in the Dexter Slice Of Props Auction.

Devotees can purchase the main character’s couch, framed pictures from the walls of his apartment and even the phone which sat on his desk. A prop forensic report featuring the Dexter Morgan character’s signature is also among the lots.

The online auction ends on Jan. 12.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Michael C. Hall, who played the title role, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2010 but has since gone into remission and is now a major supporter of the charity.
