Default 1972 Pro Star Promotions Posters

I am looking for the elusive 1972 Pro Star Promotions Posters. It was a Canadian Issue that was released with the more available Postcards. I would not have believed they even existed but I found a Willie Stargell on Ebay a couple of years ago. There are a total of 12 posters, including Clemente, Rose and Mays.

I would appreciate any help on where I can find these posters.

Thanks

Do you have a picture of one? What are the size of the posters and who is included in the 12? Donít think Iíve seen one before.

You are looking for a rare bird indeed!! I knew a guy who had a complete set about 25 years ago. I bought the Clemente from him - it is tucked away somewhere. I have searched and kept my eyes open for more ever since. I have never seen them again. Your post is the only time since I bought mine that I have heard them mentioned again. Curious to see if others own or have seen them. If I recall - pose the same as the cards - don't recall exact size - something in the ballpark of Topps '68 posters.

I didn't know they existed, either. The checklist card lists them.

This must be the Willie Stargell. According to the listing it measures approximately 17 x 22 inches.

Wow. That's incredible. Has to be one of the rarest Clemente collectibles out there.

I would love to see that myself. Its the same picture as the postcards but I believe the autograph is placed in a different spot from the postcards. As an aside, PSA just had its second Gem Mint 10 of Brooks Robinson postcard recently.

I have a set of Al and NL postcards in original holders red for Nl and Blue for Al. Tough set to complete given the high number of Hall of Famers that get scooped up by player collectors. I have listed it on BST and get inquiries about singles but I really hate breaking up sets.
And I think due to where they were issued the Royal posters turn up more often than the all star posters. The key difference was already pointed out on the posters they kept the facsimile signature small and most times moved it to a white background where it can be seen easily. I had a small group of posters back in the day but traded them away since storing them was so difficult.
