Seller: oldvan (52.229) 100%, Location: High Wycombe, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 392055744987 Toggle navigation Menu Home About Us Delivery Payment View Feedback This item is listed with FREE POSTAGE in the UK (Two) Pop Posters, made and printed in Holland by Monty Factories, Suzi Quatro / Meatloaf + Joey Travolta / Patricia Paay – as-new, in original Packet / Wrapper, c1978. This is a scarce 8½” x 6” flimsy packet that contains two double-sided Pop Posters, that were made and printed in Holland by Monty Factories – Leiden / Holland according to the wording on the back, in I think late 1978 or perhaps early 1979. I am fairly sure that they were only made for a very short time. I always think of Monty in terms of ‘Monty Gum’, but these packets never had any gum in them. They were sold as (effectively) trade cards, not confectionery. The glossy (but again quite flimsy) posters measure just under 12” x 8” and each features a different pop star / group on the front and the back. They are contained in the packet folded in half. The posters / images on the posters are not numbered so I am not sure how many there were to collect, although I know of 48, which seems a fairly sensible number. Some of the posters in the set feature rock / pop megastars (both from a 1970s point of view and a 2016 point of view). Others seem quiet obscure – especially for the UK market, although I assume they were sold in various European countries as well as Britain and so the inclusion of some of the less well-known acts does make more sense as they may well have been megastars themselves everywhere except the UK?! Some of the images on the posters seemed to be from earlier in the decade that perhaps Monty owned the rights to as they issued various smaller gum cards featuring pop stars at various times during the 1970s. Others are bang up to date and show bands / singers who only appeared during 1978 (and whose careers were over within months!!) The two posters in this packet feature A) Suzi Quatro, backed with Meatloaf and B) – Joey Travolta backed with Patricia Paay. Until I removed them to photograph they had never been taken out of the packet, which is now over 30 years old. So they are perfectly clean and do not have any pin-holes or tape etc in the corners. As I say, other than the name of the group / star there is no date or other information on either of the posters. They are an unusual size and if you are a fan they make quiet a curiosity now. Please note that the packets were never sealed. The tops are open and simply folded in to keep the posters in place. (Which makes it very convenient to open them, take a couple of pictures, and then put the posters back inside without harming anything!) Please note that the rather tatty box in my picture below is NOT for sale. I just thought I would show it in case anyone found it interesting.
