Do you miss “Mad Men?” Would you like to to own Peggy’s typewriter, Megan’s china, Betty’s engagement ring, or Don’s watch? Maybe his office liquor tray? Or a script signed by the cast? Whether you’re looking for some mid-century swank or something from the lives of the engrossing characters in the series, this is your chance. Tomorrow, June 1, 2016, Screenbid is offering props from the “Mad Men” television series at auction. And if you’ve got money and space to spare, you might want to think about the red 1964 Imperial Crown Chrysler convertible, from Season 4, Episode 3, one of only 922 ever built. The New York Times says: “It has power steering, brakes, windows and antenna, plus a 727 TorqueFlite push-button automatic transmission. And, if you’re lucky, a few flicks of cigarette ash from the incorrigible Mr. Draper.”

Right now, it’s a nifty way to reduce production expenses and connect to fans. But if this becomes the prevalent way to dispose of props, with more than $60 thousand for Walter White’s copy of Leaves of Grass in the “Breaking Bad” auction, we might see television series start to look more like infomercials.
