Rare James Bond posters hitting auction block in LA
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - In line with the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise, posters from every Bond movie in the series are hitting the auction block in December, along with stills, lobby cards, scripts and other 007 ephemera.
Auctioneer Profiles in History said the Bond poster collection is expected to take in well over US$200,000 (S$244,000), led by a rare From Russia With Love special advance Leicester Square world-premiere poster from 1963.
It is one of a handful believed still in existence and is expected to fetch US$10,000 to US$15,000, the auction house said.
"It's such a rare thing when you get every title like this," said Joe Maddalena, the auction house's president, referring to the comprehensive offerings.
