So a current search of James Bond trading cards on eBay resulted in 14,729 listings. Most are autograph cards or boxes. Quick look saw no unlicensed ones, maybe they are somewhere else. Lots of erosion on the auto prices, I haven't really looked at these in awhile.

Anyway, hardly seems any reason to produced any unlicensed Bond cards, is there? Wink

These are uk auctions and there are about a dozen or more, look home made.

OK I guess either I don't see those here or they are buried somewhere in the 14,000 odd listings. Perhaps a reason for it might be that it has become to expensive to find eBay sellers who will ship to the UK. Certainly there is no shortage of licensed Bond cards for sale, but if they are mainly in the US market because it was RA, someone in the UK may see the opportunity for a home made knock off.

Here's the latest addition to my James Bond autograph collection; it took me a while to find all the pieces to put it together. Hope you like it.

That's really nice. You could add things to it like Eunice Gayson for instance.

Glad you liked it. This was basically done to highlight the Connery signature which took me a long time to get. I then decided to add Connery's Tuxedo card along with the other two main stars Andress and Lord to compliment it. I thought about adding more pieces but held off so I would not dilute the main focus which was Connery in his first Bond film outing. Also, the more you add to a piece, the larger it gets and the more expensive it gets. I do have other Dr. No autographed items and they're featured in my wall displays which I uploaded on page 22 of this thread.

Steve C. from Rittenhouse posted today about the 3 missing Bond autos, WA48 and A291 and 294.

He said that the WA48 does not exist in final form and/or it was never signed.

Steve would not comment on the other two.

He also would not say who is on the 3 cards.

Thanks X. Smile Do you have it ? (I saw you're collecting James Bond cards but I haven't read all the pages of the subject.)

Filled in a gap in my wish-list of James Bond autographs yesterday. Michael Lonsdale aka Hugo Drax from Moonraker was doing a book signing in Rouen (France) so I mocked up an autograph card in the style of Rittenhouse's autograph cards and Im pleased to say the great acting legend kindly agreed to sign it. Sadly he's quite old now, and rather frail (86 years of age), but his mind was sharp, he had a great sense of humour and was very generous with his time. Great guy!

Hoping this image will show...

You mocked that up? It looks professional.
Must have been a great experience getting that autograph.

Yep, scanned in an existing card and edited it in MS Paint! That said, I sent off to have it printed professionally and on-card.
Yep, meeting Lonsdale was great. He's very cultured and extremely well-read in English as much as French. When he found out I was English he started quoting Wordsworth to me! He's had an incredible life it seems. I was amazed that for someone of his advanced years, he still made time for his fans.

Yes I do have that one, I couldn't resist waiting when it came out. You did way better on the price than me, patience is a virtue and all that!

I, along with many, thought she would never sign as she was the last big hold-out of the Brosnan era signers. She has a nice signature too.

Many of the Bond autographs seem to be dropping in price and by dropping I mean they are reaching good value in line with the current level of demand. It's not for every signer that has hit an over $100 auto and it's not for every auto card of every signer that has hit an over $100 auto, but looking at the eBay sales list, there have been some really good bargains made on names you wouldn't expect to see. Maybe not on their best Bond auto card, but on one of their Bond autos.

All part of the changing of the guard. Unlike what we experienced with the vintage card market, time is not decreasing supply and increasing demand. Supply is remaining constant, as these modern hits are carefully handled and not subject to careless destruction. Demand is decreasing as newer and hotter subjects come along. As holding collectors decide to sell off, the prices must drop to meet the remaining level of demand of people that couldn't or wouldn't pay for these cards before. Only the best of the best are going to hold their peak values and only on some of their cards. So don't expect the likes of Janssen to drop, but the likes of Craig already have.
