Touted as the "most comprehensive collection" of Bond movie posters to hit the collector's market, the range is going up for auction December 15 and 16 in Los Angeles.

Noted Hollywood auction house Profiles in History, run by Syfy's Hollywood Treasure host, Joe Maddalena, has put together the impressive collection from every film starring the world's most famous secret agent.

The 007 movie poster collection alone is estimated to bring in more than $200,000, said The Hollywood Reporter.

"This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any fan of James Bond to acquire rare Bond movie posters that may never reach the market again," Maddalena said.

Some of the rare poster highlights include a Dr No special advance silkscreen UK double crown poster from 1962, arguably the very first James Bond film poster to appear in public From Russia With Love world premiere advance UK quad poster from 1963, possibly the rarest of all theatrical release James Bond posters  and a Goldfinger UK advance double crown poster (style A) from 1964, considered one of the great rarities of James Bond poster collecting.
