Cool BP poster - show us your posters... - Tue Feb 19 2019 09:15 AM

Hi,
I recently got this cool BP poster. It is an original from 1957 when the Swedish Grand Prix races were held in the town of Kristianstad.
Two of the worlds best racing drivers were advertized - Juan Fangio and Sterling Moss.

A number of these were found in the home of a person working at the track at that time - they are now sold in favor of youth sports in the local sports club.

Hope U like it :-)

This is my only racing related Mobil poster, from 1960. I do not have it framed as it's quite large, about 3X4 feet. I love posters and have many Mobil ones, but they take up a lot of wall real estate which I just don't have much left anymore!

That Veedol poster is amazing, bustermonty! I need one in my life! Here’s a Tidex one I had a couple years ago and a poorly cropped pic of my French Tide Water Suprol poster as I’m not home to take a better pic

Mine is not a framed paper poster but rather an easel-back cardboard advertisement for the 1963 Shell 4000 mile car rally from Vancouver to Montreal. A Chevy II Nova won that year.

Couple Decembers back, I was invited to look at a Associated Bulk plant that was boarded up back in the early 50's.
There was a couple boxes of posters that had never been opened from shipping, in tubes, to the bulk plant.
There was over 150 original posters and most were Veedol/Tydol but many other posters for stuff like Whiz products, Champion etc..
They were amazing with the graphics and colors!

Here is a example of the graphics for the stamp on the posters and a local football Flying A poster that was hanging in the bulk plant office.
