Anybody know about these promo posters?
« on: September 01, 2021, 02:22:43 PM »
Not the folded up posters Topps sold in the 1970s, these were both (promo?) posters from the 1970s…I apologize, I am terrible at uploading links and photos, but there are currently two different posters on e-bay..First is asking $600 for a poster of reproductions of first series stickers, the seller makes it clear it is not an uncut sheet, but a poster he saved wrappers and sent in to get. Ebay auction number is 324773679623….second poster is for sale at $375, has Wacky Package logo in the center, and reproductions of a ton of OS Wackys. The ebay auction number of that item is 384243384397…Does anyone know how rare these posters are? Im sorry if this has been previously covered in this forum, but when i searched for “posters” i get a bunch of threads about the folded poster packs that were sold…

The mail in poster is indeed difficult to find, and is a vintage Topps item. The other poster I believe is fan produced.

Would you think it is $600 rare? I realize items are always worth whatever someone us willing to pay. Anyone on here have a mail-in poster?

I had one I received in the mail when I was about 14 but cut it up to fill holes in my collection.  :sad:

Don't cry, I used uncut sheets to fill my holes.   :'(

Ah, the foolish things we did when we were young….It is a wonder that we, and our collections even survived…

I think I have two sets of all three mail away posters and some of the mailing tubes Topps used to mail them out originally.  They are very difficult to find.

It is escaping me: what's the third mail away poster? I can only think of the Hostage and Weakies versions of the one JOJ pointed out. I have both Hostage and Weakies versions, though the latter is in pretty poor shape. I also have two versions of the other (fan made) poster with all the die-cut/OS stickers on it.

Believe Ernie is referring to the 1979 reprint mail away poster.

Posters are very cool, but that is a LOT of money, and framing larger items is NOT cheap...

Ah, OK. That one completely slipped my mind, obviously.

I have all three mail in posters - $600 could be fair depending on condition.  The $375 poster was fan produced and I think we paid $25 for one

Sorry, the original listing for item #324773779623, the mail in poster for $600, is no longer on eBay, nor is it listed as having been sold. Maybe the seller pulled it. There is the same item, listed at $660 in slightly worse condition fir $660 as item #324789716259. The $375 fan poster is still listed as item #384243384397….

Here is the picture of the mail in poster, so we might still see it for a while after the auction is gone.
