SAN DIEGO — I stopped by the Profiles in History booth to get a look at some of the props and costumes from Lost that will be auctioned off after the series wraps in May 2010. I was able to get an up-close look at items like Sawyer’s jumpsuit as “LaFleur” and Charlie’s DriveShaft ring. The postcard promoting the auction also had some mysterious, Lost-like qualities.
