Five Cool Pieces of Pop Culture from Movie Posters to Guitars You Can Make Yours

On Dec. 17 at Bonhams' Entertainment Memorabilia sale in London, there's a chance to score some seriously cool pieces of pop culture, from movie posters to guitars and more, at a range of price points. Here are the highlights:

A Fistful of Dollars Italian Poster

Vintage Italian movie posters are masterpieces of design that can often be had for relatively little money. This one of the 1964 Clint Eastwood classic is estimated at $900–$1,300.

Brad Pitt's sunglasses from War Machine

In the 2017 satirical war film Pitt plays a scandal-plagued four-star general. The aviators he wears on-screen were made by Savile Row Eyewear, London craftsmen of bespoke frames. Estimated at $780–$8,000.

Mick Rock Photograph

British photographer Mick Rock captured this image of three music legends, Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Lou Reed, at the Ziggy Stardust farewell party at Cafe Royale in London in 1973. If only we had a recording of their conversation. Estimated at $3,900–$5,200. 

Mick Jagger's Fender Stratocaster

Jagger used this guitar during the recording of his first solo album She's The Boss in 1984. It is believed to have originally been given to him by Fender Japan after the launch of this "Japanese Vintage" Squier model. Estimated at $6,500–$9,100.

Diamonds are Forever Poster

This awesome illustrated poster for the 1971 Bond flick, one of the franchise's grooviest, is being sold along with a second poster for Goldfinger, making a perfect matched pair. Also a steal at $780–$1,000.
