(Looks like Burt & Bert's signatures are embroidered)
(Seller doesn't seem to know their from the NBC versions of "High Rollers")
(A rare photo on the set of "Word for Word")
(Seen a similar photo, only Hugh and Bob are shaking hands in this one)

(Yes, they may be fakes, though if they were you'd think the seller would call out the show directly. Don't care. You know that "if you could have ONE prop" thread that pops up from time to time? Assuming that the Card Sharks cards don't exist, this is mine. Happy Birthday to me.)

I'm sitting there looking at it, thinking "You know, I'd go as high as $50 for these, but they'll probably go for $100+." And then I realized I didn't have to. And I just turned 40 last Wednesday and hadn't gotten myself a present yet.
And so I clicked figuring they were long gone since I'd been looking at it for a minute or so, but nope. And honestly when you're looking at Bakelite dice in those sizes at Friendly Local Game Stores they go for somewhere between $20 and $25 a pop, usually, for a single die. So, like I said up there, even if they *are*, fakes, if the auction said "THESE ARE FAKE 100% INAUTHENTIC REPLICAS OF DICE USED ON A '70S GAME SHOW", I'd have pulled the trigger anyhow. The fact that they *may* be genuine is just gravy.
I've since emailed the seller asking if she remembered how she came into them (really curiosity, not out of trying to detect their authenticity or anything), and she replied:
