The description fails to mention that the set comes with an autograph of Sean Connery obtained during the "Fantasy Weekend in London":
'to Ian & Matí: Congratulations for being the "BOND BOYS" for the weekend - Sean Connery'
Question: Is it Jan, Ian or Zan? Who is Ian & Matí? :-)
The "upcoming Bond movie" (visit to Pinewood Studios in early 2002 was included in the original Wristory auction lot) was: Die Another Day (with Pierce Brosnan as James Bond).
