    On June 17 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM ET, TREASURE HD (another VOOM HD Networks channel), will air a live auction from Planet Hollywood in New York with audio simulcast and live concurrent bidding at Planet Hollywood in London. The auction will feature over 50 lots of James Bond memorabilia including the original Lotus prototype driven be Roger Moore in For Your Eyes Only. (It’s estimated at $250,000 to $350,000, so you’d better check the limit on your credit card before you start bidding.) The auction is being presented by Julien’s Auctions, and if you’re really serious about owning some of the Bond memorabilia (like Odd Job’s gold finger ring worn in Goldfinger, Odd Job’s steel-rimmed black felt derby hat, or a pair of opal and rhinestone drop ear-rings worn by Miss Moneypenny in Moonraker), you can bid online at Julien’s Auctions web site.
