Soon You Can Buy Don Draper's Car And Other 'Mad Men' Props
There's going to be an auction where you—yes, you—can purchase items from Mad Men, including Don Draper's 1964 Chrysler Imperial and Megan's sheets.
On June 1, several items from AMC's Mad Men will be available via auction on ScreenBid. There will be over 1,500 objects, including furniture and clothes, according to a release. The auction was curated by property master Ellen Freund, who said in a statement:
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. With this auction, it's exciting to give fans a chance to take home a piece of American and television history.
You can watch Freund tour the auction in the video below:
Lots will begin closing as soon as Monday, June 13, so if you can't live without something Jon Hamm touched, we'd suggest bidding early.
