Cricket Collectables occasionally have Movie Star autographs

Posted on January 11, 2014 by Selby There have been 0 comments

It's rarer than a Faberge egg (there's 61 of those).

It's rarer than a Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder LWB (50 were made).

And incredibly, it's even rarer than Shakespeare's signature (just six of those exist).

The brand new stock item I'm going to show you today is… rare.

But SO WHAT you say? Cold days in July are pretty rare, and last time I checked, nobody wanted one of those.

Not so fast. Let me explain.

Sex on the brain

This item is from one of the most famous literary names of the 20th century.

People all over the world know his work.

This Englishman created one of the most loved film heroes of all time. A hero who is instantly recognisable today.

And, as an upcoming BBC series will demonstrate, this man was every bit as intriguing, exciting and rakish as his creation.

"No one I have ever known had sex so much on the brain," said a former girlfriend.

But what does this mean for you?

When you have this incredible heritage asset in your possession, you have an item to pass down the generations. An item your friends envy. An item that gives you tremendous pride to own. An item that places you in a very, very select group of high-end collectors.

You can say to yourself: 'This man is a literary legend, it's almost impossible to obtain these pieces - yet I own one.'

What am I talking about?

This:

Ian Fleming signed photo

Your chance to own one of just five Ian Fleming signed photos


A fully authenticated Ian Fleming signed photo. One of just five in existence.

Fleming, the creator of James Bond.

James Bond: 25 films and counting - every new release sparks global pandemonium. The theme tune, the girls, the one-liners, the absurd killing devices.

It's Ian Fleming we have to thank.

Fleming was his own inspiration for James Bond. Fleming established a secret commando unit in WWII, he enjoyed affairs with a string of women in high society, he had unending self-confidence.

Where will you display it?

The signed photo is an absolute beauty, and provides a terrific sense of Fleming's debonair character.

Fleming's signature is crisp too. A real treat.

And at 4.5 inches high, it makes a superb display piece.

Its provenance is rock solid.

It comes from the collection of a housekeeper for Britain's WWII counter propaganda team, where Fleming spent some time during the war.

It's not in perfect condition. But at more than 50 years old, it's not going to be. Yet the slight rips and scuffs do nothing to hamper the overall impact of the piece.

A growing market

Yet there's one question you want to know. And that's how much, right?

Consider this.

→ A Fleming-signed first edition of You Only Live Twice made $70,000 in 2011.

→ Fleming's original manuscript for Diamonds Are Forever auctioned at Sotheby's in 2012 for £97,250 ($158,000).

→ A gun used by Sean Connery in publicity photos for four Bond films sold for £277,250 ($437,501) in 2010.

Collectors are clearly willing to fight hard for the leading Fleming and Bond pieces.

So you might think one of just five Fleming signed photos is going to cost you, say, £30,000, £35,000, £40,000?

Nope.

Just £19,950 (approx. $32,900).

£19,950 ($32,900) gets you an incredibly rare signature from one of literature's most famous names. Remember, Ian Fleming signed photos are rarer than Shakespeare's signature.

And I want to make it even easier for you to own this piece: pay in 12 monthly instalments of £1,662.50 ($2,742) if you prefer. Learn more here
