2020 Reflections

edited December 2020 in Recent Acquisitions
Well it’s almost over - 2020... VMPF saw its 6th year. Boy, time flies! I was worried most of 2020 thinking it would take forever to see a potential vaccine and the new year. 

On the poster collecting front, I ended 2019 with a Star Wars bang racking up the Stye A and ROTJ 3SH.  I start 2020 getting my Angels with Dirty Faces Restored. Dario rescued me with a fresh resto of Tax Driver at some point. I missed out on that purple Mad Max which you guys now have me convinced is just as scarce as the orange one...  Else, I spent a lot of 2020 picking up IMAX and Intl variants of many different posters.

Also fell down a comic book rabbit hole with the high point being a Howling Commandos #1 with a Jack Kirby signature on the splash page...

I only managed one barn find this year with all the closures and COVID fear. But you guys wouldn’t know - I never posted them.  I’ll try to get on that today... A very nice set of ~40s stills...

I think for 2021 I need to religiously share my pickups. I use to love posting to latest acquisitions but with my time being pulled away with the firm, I just let it slip.

I also want to increase my Hitchcock and Cagney collection. Hopefully a few great pickups out on the horizon.

Thanks for being a member of the best little poster forum on the inter webs. I always feel we are a close bunch - like a second family...

If I can ever help any of you in any way, just let me know. I’m not as grumpy as I seem.

Wishing you all the best in the new year!

How was your 2020?


That second mouse in the bowl of cream we call life...

    Sweet post Charlie, can't wait to see those 40's stills. Hopefully we can all stay covid free in the new year.

    As for me only one poster but a gem to add the war collection. Apart from moving to my new place, I got lucky to land a new job and get out of the construction industry. I work for a company that provides fibre to the home in new estates. Those fibres go back to a "head end" via series of splitters which I build in the workshop. 

    Nice to be on active side dealing with Satellite, RF and Comm's equipment rather than just cabling a network.

    Here's for a better new year everyone, good riddens to 2020!
