‘Mad Men’ Auction Will Let You Take Home Don Draper’s Wallet, Peggy Olson’s Typewriter

More than 1,500 official props and memorabilia used on the set of AMC’s “Mad Men” will be available for auction beginning June 1 to commemorate the 1-year anniversary of the series finale.

Ellen Freund, the award-winning property master who curated the items, teamed with Hollywood’s leading collectible auction site Screenbid to make the opportunity possible. Fans will be able to place a bid for such items as Don Draper’s (Jon Hamm) bar cart dressing and wallet, Peggy Olson’s (Elisabeth Moss) moving banker box and SC&P typewriter, and Joan Harris’ (Christina Hendricks) office ice bucket and tumbler set.

“Every item that appeared on ‘Mad Men’ was chosen with painstaking care to be both historically accurate for the time period and to help tell the characters’ stories through the objects around them,” said Freund. “With this auction, it’s exciting to give fans a chance to take home a piece of American and television history.”

Other props available for auction include  Ted Chaough’s globe bar cart,  Don and Megan’s clear glass ice bucket and scotch glasses set, Roger Sterling’s Ray-Ban sunglasses and the SC&P Kodak projector complete with stand and reels.

Dozens of items in the auction were featured in the “Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men” exhibit at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image in 2015 and at Modernism Week 2016 in Palm Springs.

“Mad Men” auction items will be available for bidding on ScreenBid.com on Wednesday, June 1. Lots will begin closing on Monday, June 13 and conclude on Wednesday, June 15. Hundreds of items will close on Monday, June 13 so they can be shipped to arrive in time for Father’s Day.

“Mad Men,” which followed the professional and personal lives of Madison Avenue advertising men and women during the 1960s, is one of the most honored series in television history, winning three Golden Globe awards for best drama and four Emmy awards for outstanding drama series. It tied the all-time record for Emmy wins in the category.

The series was written by Matthew Weiner and ended its run in the spring of 2015.
