Man From U.N.C.L.E. ID Cards

Man From U.N.C.L.E. ID Cards

For those of you who would like to order my reproduction of the ID cards seen on the 1960s TV show “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” I need to make a few points. And PLEASE read ALL of this page–especially the stuff at the bottom–before you think about ordering.

Here are what Mine look like…

NOTICE: If any of you out there have more info on the screen used ID cards or if I have anything wrong, here, please email me at the address down below.

First of all, the MGM prop department did not make these cards to be very sturdy. They were just a quick prop made by the studio printing/prop department and were printed on card stock not much heavier than a business card.

In fact, in “The Deadly Decoy Affair” you can see that the card Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) hands another character is dented and creased showing that it is not a very stiff or sturdy affair.

The card featured a yellow front with an UNCLE logo and the agent’s names punched out on a Dymo label maker tape label that was then affixed to the front of the card. That was all there was to it. The card wasn’t laminated, it wasn’t made of real thick cardboard and it wasn’t plastic, or anything. (Info on the back of the card appears below.)

So, here are the cards as seen on the show…..

CARD ONE

Even though the photo is in black and white, you can see that this one has the agents’ names on red Dymo tape with the tape glued onto the card running through the middle of the globe and angling to the left of the card. The tape ended about 1/4 inch before the edge of the card. Both agents used this card on screen. (Illya’s card is on the left, Solo’s to the right)

CARD TWO

This card was used by Illya and featured his name in red Dymo tape affixed at the center top of the card.

CARD THREE

This one was used by Solo in “The Nowhere Affair.” Notice how the black Dymo tape with his name on it is right in the middle just under the globe.

CARD FOUR

This one Was used by Solo in “The Candidate’s Wife Affair.” Notice that the black Dymo tape with his name on it goes almost to the left edge of the card unlike card number one above which has the red tape ending about 1/4 from the edge of the card.

BACK OF CARD

As to the back of the cards, in “The Deadly Decoy Affair,” in the train scene you can see that there is some printing on the back of the card. Unfortunately, it is too indistinct to see what is really there, so I have decided to use the “section” info as printed on the ID cards the studio sent out to fans in the mail in 1965. I am only assuming that this is what was on the back of the screen-used cards as this is what the studio put on the cards they sent out when fans wrote in to ask for ID cards.

HOW TO BUY

Now, I will be charging $5 per card as these are all hand made. I use an antique, manual Dymo label maker (not a modern, computer-controlled one) so each name is punched out individually by hand, the same old fashioned way just like the prop department at MGM did it.

Please tell me which card type (version one, two, three or four) you want and which agent’s names you want on the front. Also you can order your own name, but be sure to understand that if you have a very long name it will be hard to fit on the card and won’t quite look like the cards as seen on screen.

Let’s put it this way, if your name is “William Pratt” it will fit better on the card than if your name is “Jonathan Montgomery Christensen, Jr.” if you know what I mean? So, try to keep it as short as possible if you want your own name on the card. Try to use only your first and last name, especially if you have a long name.

SHIPPING

I am going to charge $4 for shipping inside the U.S. if you order three or four cards. For overseas orders we will have to handle that on a case-by-case basis.

PAYMENT

So, I do Paypal and my address for it is igcolonel@hotmail.com. Please email me at this address with which cards you want and how many, what your name and shipping address is and I will send a Paypal invoice to you. Then you can pay and I’ll make them up and ship them out.

If you want a different way to pay, then email me using the address above and we can talk about it. But I am just a guy making some fun cards, NOT a business so I do NOT do credit cards or debit cards.

Please don’t try to order 20 or 50 or 100 cards. These are hand made, hand glued, and hand sprayed with a fixative, so I am not mass producing these. I am also not trying to make a ton of money, here. I have spent quite a bit in supplies and am basically just trying to break even. This IS NOT a money making deal for me.
