User Rating:

It had to start somewhere. Just as he's had a long career in films, 007 has a storied history with trading cards. For collectors in North America, it all began with 1965 Philadelphia Gum James Bond.

The set is nothing fancy. The cards feature black and white photos and a small white border. Most are movie stills, although there are some promotional shots as well. Card backs are a little more elaborate. The top has a large banner declaring James Bond as a "Secret Agent." The left corner has a series of red circles that hold the set number. Running down the left side are two black silhouettes of Bond. One is pointing a gun. The other has Bond opening a door. Finally, the cards have a large writeup describing the action.

The 66-card set includes cards from the first three James Bond movies. Dr. No kicks off the set with 18 cards. From Russia With Love runs from numbers 19 to 41. The final 25 cards are dedicated to Goldfinger.

I have an uncut sheet of black and white sean connery/james bond cards. Wondering how much they’d be worth and how to find out.
