USPS Classic Movie Monsters Poster
« on: February 21, 2020, 03:24:00 PM »
Can anyone that has one confirm that the US Postal Service had posters like this one? I was told that it hung in the lobby of a post office not sold to the public. The person said they have had the poster for many years and that they had found it at a Flea market. Size is 16x20.

Do you know how to do a screen grab?

I'm anxious to see this poster as well, The Monster. Would it happen to be the one that featured the unused Basil Gogos artwork?

Another failed attempt.  ;D

Is it the 1997 stamp art?

I also found and bought some art prints of just the stamp artwork, That a guy tells me the post office did. I cannot get them to post. They don't have the stamp border or the 32 USA on them.

11 x 14 prints? They came in a decorated folio folder. I used to have those, but I sold all of my '97 stamp stuff.

 I have that set. It's very, very nice. He may have forgotten to include a Phantom pic. If anyone is interested, they should contact the dealer to make sure.

Well the seller said they are like 12x16, and why would the phantom print be 16x20? but I think the seller may have matted them and now they are saying the Frankenstein is damaged and so they did not send it. I believe they are a board member here. I need a Frankenstein "masteraddams"? lol or my set is no good. you should have stated they where from the folio lol.
