Halle Berry auto coming to James Bond product

By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Sports Card Monthly Editor

Rittenhouse Archives is celebrating James Bond like no other.

The company is putting out James Bond The 50th Anniversary Trading Cards Series 2 with some big names included in the autograph set.

Rittenhouse lists at least two actors who played Bond – Daniel Craig and Roger Moore – many of his villains and, of course, leading ladies, which includes Oscar-award winner Halle Berry, which seems to be her first certified autograph, according to the Beckett database.

The set is scheduled to come out in November for $84 a box on Rittenhouse’s site. There are three autos per box, including Sean Bean (Alec Trevelyan/GoldenEye), John Rhys-Davies (Gen. Pushkin/The Living Daylights), Richard Kiel, Honor Blackman and others.

The 99-card base set is the second half of the 198-card set that started with the first series of the product. It includes characters and pictures from 22 of Bonds’ films. These cards will also have a parallel.

Rittenhouse is included special inserts such as 108-card “From Russia With Love’ throwback cards, which includes unpublished photos, Gold Foil Plaque Cards, James Bond 007 Gold Gallery, SkyFall Preview cards.

There are also three types of Shadowbox cards featuring Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig.

Of course, no Bond set can be complete without a tribute to the ladies.

How come there is still no Sean Connery autograph card?
I mean, even if he wanted $100 per it would pay off for the company.
Seems silly to have to wait for the almost inevitable cut card instead.

I agree with Richard… unless Mr. Connery wants in excess of $100 per sig? Otherwise this product looks like a winner!

I bet Connery would need way more that $100 per card

Even if he wanted $200, it would still be worth it.
The product would go insane. Hell, make it a multi-case bonus only card and people
would buy the cases just for it alone, then sell the boxes at a discount.
I’d consider buying 30 boxes (3 cases) to get one.

Or they could do a direct sale to the public ala the Robert Downey Jr. Auto card mini set they
put out at a cost of $200 per.
