It had been missing for decades. During the pandemic, a retired acting professor at the Catholic University of America spotted the iconic blue and white dress while going through some boxes.

The auction house said it was one of five known versions of the dress, but it was one of only two attached to the white blouse.
Judy Garland wore this version of the dress during the Wicked Witch’s Castle scene.
The school memorabilia was found to have been donated by actress Mercedes McCambridge in 1973.
It is expected to go for quite a bit of money. Another dress worn by Judy Garland fetched $1.5 million at a Bonhams auction in 2015.
