Default WTB: Porsche Racing Poster 1000kms Spa 1970

Looking to buy this poster.



It used to be for sale from Pelican Parts as a reprint for $20 but it seems they don't have it anymore. Anyone have one they don't mind selling?

Thanks JoAnne. I've seen this one listed a number of times, but I've never pulled the trigger on it.

It looks like an unauthorized reprint, rather than the licensed reprints. Its not that I'm being snobbish on the authorization (due to what I plan to do with the poster), but more that aesthetically it doesn't quite look the same. I know that may seem inconsequential, but many of the posters from that time had blacks, reds, and yellows either to evoke the German flag or just as a design aesthetic, and this reprint seems to miss the mark since "SPA" has no yellow in it.

Many thanks for the suggestion though!

Yes......there is a difference.
Do you ever come up to the LAX Porsche Lit Meet?
You would probably find the real deal there but at real deal prices!!
We have a table or two every year selling our goodies.

No, I've never been.

I first became enamored with these posters at Rennsport Reunion IV...and then I saw the price tag on many. Real deal is right, there was a comma in many!!

I prefer the inexpensive replicas as I have them 'transferred' onto wood:
