Auction Alert: Profiles in History Hosts James Bond Poster Sale
With Skyfall, the 23rd installment in the Bond series hitting theatres today, it’s only befitting we scour for some bond memorabilia. Quite impressed with our finds, we direct you to a James Bond movie posters auction in Los Angeles, all set for a 15-16 December showing.
Joe Maddalena, owner of Profiles in History claims that the collection is so vast and exclusive that the auction will overshadow the 1998 South Kensington Christie’s spin-off by miles.
While the distance covered can be only gauged after the auction, it’s the money the auction is expecting to raise that is impressive. All bets are on roughly $200,000.
Do the math and it seems fairly realistic this tag. While the rare Dr. No poster from 1962 is expecting to fetch $3,000-$5,000, both Goldfinger Style ‘A’ (1964) and Thunderball (1965) are an easy $4-6k bid.
The lowest scorer would have to be Goldfinger’s alternate Style ‘B’ poster, touted to go at just about $2,000-$3,000 , but much of that will be compensated by their special advance Leicester Square world-premier poster of From Russia With Love. This Renato Fratini piece of art could garner $10-15k easy.
