Not many people have as much Monty Python memorabilia as I do. Perhaps the only other person (outside of the Pythons themselves) is my friend Hans, who has been collecting for a long, long time. Longtime fans may remember his terrific Python web site, the Daily Llama.
Hans spent 30 years collecting Python memorabilia, including books, videos & DVDs, records & singles, posters, lobby cards, rare photos & press kits, video games, board games, stuffed toys, gag gifts, action figures, collectible cards, t-shirts, ties, watches, hats, costumes, mugs, magnets, postcards, stamps, buttons, keychains, etc. etc. At one point during that period, he even found time to have dinner with me.
I’m not sure who that tall English gentleman is, however.
Well, all good things come to an end, and Hans has decided to auction off his vast treasure trove of 1500 highly-desired Python items. A collection like this doesn’t come along every day, and now’s your chance to own a piece of it–hard-to-find items, autographed bits, and–well, look for yourself. But give yourself plenty of time. My brain is hurting and I haven’t even scratched the surface.
