In 2002 or so I announced that I had finally discovered what was
in the original Blade Runner Deckard ID wallet and listed everything
contained within. I also explained that I had indirectly encountered the
owner of one of the only three set-used wallets ever made—who had paid
$30,000 for his copy—and that it would never see the light of day.
Eventually it was discovered that the
original owner had actually spent $40,000 on the wallet and accessories.
Subsequently, after negotiating an arrangement with a friend of the
wallet's owner, I offered a reproduction to fans throughout the world. In
the end, approximately 25 complete wallet sets were produced, while a few
individual components were also sold separately. All of the proceeds were
returned to the original owner of the wallet through the proxy,
whom I believed to be completely reliable and honest.
One day, the original hero
Blade Runner blaster and various other props from the production surfaced.
These immediately called into question the veracity of my claims that the
props from my wallet set were copied from originals. And although I still
have no way to verify with 100% certainty that my source was telling me the
truth, I still believe the props I recreated to be real. If they are not, I
fell into an extremely well-concocted scam.
Regardless, I continue to
remain in contact with the person who supplied the props from which these
wallet components were reproduced, and no concrete evidence has ever led me
to believe that I was misled in any way. Supposedly, these items were
delivered to Ridley Scott for use in the film. It simply cannot be
confirmed whether or not these particular versions of the props were the
ones used on screen.
Now that quite a bit of time has passed, I have
come to the conclusion that the remaining 10 complete wallet sets that I have put
together should be made available to those who might be still interested in
this project. Everything is produced on acid-free material and the padding for
the case is hypoallergenic. These props are meant to last. Here's what's included:
1. Deckard ID
2. Deckard apartment card
3. Deckard credit card
4. Sepia-tone photos and futuristic money
5. The wallet and gold-tone picture badge
6. Vid-Phon card
7. One certificate of authenticity for each component group (6 certificates
- 1 through 6
8. One special full wallet set certificate of authenticity
9. Numbered display plaque
10. Shadow box display case with padding and red velvet lining material
11. Secret gift
12. Large photo of the original screen-used wallet set
13. Diagram showing where all of the components are located in the wallet
The total investment in
all of the components is $1150. Payment plans are available. But if you're

limited remaining sets. Once these 10 are sold, no others will ever be made:
The reproductions are all exactly like the originals that were presented to
me a decade ago. Although this set has become quite
controversial, it has nonetheless found its place among Blade Runner prop lore and
is highly collectable. Besides, every item in the wallet is amazingly
detailed, interesting, and desirable.
This is the most time-consuming labor-of-love Blade Runner project I ever
conceived. Additionally, it created so much discussion after some original
clip-on ID props
surfaced that it caused me considerable anguish and frustration.
Consequently, I consider each one of these sets a very personal extension of my
Blade Runner fascination. I've "bled" for them.
If you've read this far, you're obviously a big Blade Runner fan.
