Other “Mad Men” collectibles on offer include Joan’s emerald necklace, Stan Rizzo’s bongos, Bert Cooper’s tea set, and a wide assortment of vintage barware, ashtrays, briefcases, luggage, lamps, carpets and period toys.

L.A.-based ScreenBid has previously handled similar auctions for Sony Pictures Television’s “Breaking Bad” and HBO’s “True Blood” after those series ended, among others.

Season 7 of “Mad Men” received 11 Primetime Emmy nominations, including for best drama series, Jon Hamm (Don Draper) for best actor in a drama, Elisabeth Moss (Peggy Olsen) for best actress and Christina Hendricks (Joan Harris) for best supporting actress. The series was created and executive produced by Matthew Weiner, who garnered two writing Emmy nods for the final season.
