Also on sale will be the "egg" in which alien Mork traveled to earth from Ork in the breakthrough series for Williams, who committed suicide last month aged 63.

"This is such a big piece from a pop-culture, television history perspective," Brian Chanes of the Profiles in History auction house told AFP.

"I think that it's going to stand on its own merit, not because of what recently, tragically, happened with Robin," he added.

The Mork spacesuit -- thought to be the only one ever to come up for public auction -- is estimated to fetch $15,000-$20,000, while the egg-spaceship could go for between $4,000 and $6,000.

The items will go on sale at an auction of Hollywood memorabilia to be held from October 17-20 at the auction house in Calabasas, northwest of Los Angeles.
