As a fan of the show, I see many neat things, but I have a tiny feeling they will all become outrageously too expensive. I just hope someone doesn’t pay through the nose for a box or a paperback book.

“Mad Men” fans will soon get the chance to literally walk in Megan Draper’s shoes — or see the world through Don Draper’s shades.

ScreenBid, an online auction house that partners with Hollywood studios to sell collectibles from the set, is selling 1,500 props from the award-winning AMC show that wrapped last year.

On Monday, about 50 items went up online to give fans a taste of what is to come ahead of the start of the two-week sale that kicks off June 1.

Prop master Ellen Freund, who worked on the show for all seven seasons, curated the sale and designed the lots based on the characters.

“She’s made this a more thoughtful auction,” said Sara Campbell, a spokeswoman for ScreenBid, referencing last year’s “Mad Men” auction of 1,400 costumes and smaller props.

The detail-oriented Freund made headlines for spending $15,000 an episode to create the 1960s-era vibe the show emulated including vintage jewelry, old bar carts and authentic outfits.

Some of the auction’s highlights include Peggy Olson’s blue typewriter, Pete Campbell’s globe bar cart and both Don Draper and Roger Sterling’s Ray-Ban sunglasses.

Many of the pieces are museum-quality items that were previously on display at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens.
