Calling all James bond fans! Winter Associates in Plainville, CT will be holding an auction October 4, for the John Griswold James Bond/Ian Fleming collection. If you have even a passing interest in collecting James Bond memorabilia, you have to check out the listings in this auction.
John Griswold is a James Bond authority, and has amassed an unbelievable collection of items related to our our favorite secret agent. I bow down to Mr Griswold’s superior collecting ability. This isn’t the kind of stuff you would buy at the mall — this is one-of-a-kind, rare, autographed, and vintage greatness. He has a first edition of “Casino Royale” with its dust jacket. I’d pay 50 bucks just to sniff that book!
Included in this mind boggling auction is some original artwork for publications, including this signed Robert McGinnis painting used in the poster for On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (one of my personal favorites):
And the original art for the movie, You Only Live Twice:
Anyone have $12,000 they could lend me?
