Rarest authentic Planet of the Apes 1-sheet poster known to exist. In fact, there have only been five of these rare rolled beauties to surface on the collecting market in as many decades!
That's RARE by anyones measurement. Why is this poster so rare? It's because MEGO Toys. Issued this poster in conjunction with a contest to see the film in the theaters, and so it was a limited time display! It's also a rare.Because it's ROLLED and NEVER_FOLDED! It was uncustomary for 1-sheets to be issued rolled in the early 1970's.
That's because most 1-sheets a. One-sheet or 27x41 were distributed by the National Screen Service to movie theaters FOLDED. MEGO directly issued this poster. To the limited amount of toy stores participating in the contest.
Besides the fact that not many were originally printed, these originals were just not saved like the National Screen Service movie theater counterparts, and so that's why it's so amazingly RARE! Beyond the rarity, this poster ROCKS! What a sharp perfectly representative image for the legendary film series and toy line.
I've posted photos from the original 1974 20th Century-Fox GO APE Pressbook with information on the MEGO campaign. The Photos are only shown for reference purposes only and the Pressbook is NOT included in this sale.This is THE BEST EXAMPLE KNOWN TO EXIST! It's in a SOLID MINT/NearMINT ROLLED-NEVER FOLDED ORIGINAL CONDITION. It can crash regardless of any decision you make and can even crash regardless of any decision made by the company related to the stock - Leaving you with a near worthless piece of paper that won't inspire anyone!
