Original 1980 Dutch Card Wrapper

Artists/ Groups:


Hi, up for auction here are a nice lot of two (2) KISS card empty wrappers, printed in Holland circa 1980 by ‘Monty’. These colourful wrappers originally contained 3 x 1 sided KISS cards that had a variety of live, studio & candid shots on them. Although these cards came ‘un-numbered’ there were 100 in a complete set. A cool, stylised shot of Gene from 1977 is on the front of the wrapper - taken from an actual studio session by famed U.S. rock photographer, Lynn Goldsmith. *Although not sanctioned by ‘Aucoin’, etc, these were very cool items and one of only a few pieces. (Aside from posters, magazines & t shirts), etc, of European ‘retail’ KISS merchandise to be sold in shops around that time.

Not so much a ‘wrapper’ in the traditional sense, these are small ‘bags’ that came ‘unsealed’. A small paper flap on the back top edge of each ‘bag prevented the cards from falling out. (*This ‘flap’ is still intact on the 2 bags pictured). Because these wrappers/bags contained no stick of ‘bubblegum’ they are not ‘waxed’ and are printed on thin paper stock. They measure 3” x 4” (7.5cm x 10cm). The back of each ‘bag carries details about joining; 'THE MONTY KISS CLUB’, you could at the time collect 10 of these wrappers. - (Along with 50p in stamps for postage) and in return, ‘Monty’ would send you ….‘the giant, magnificent KISS Poster’. How could you resist? J

(*Please note, the photo used is of the actual items for sale.)

As for the condition, I'm a collector myself and pretty critical when it comes to rating stuff. Having said that, these are in near mint shape as you‘ll find. Stored flat out of sunlight and dust, for the best part of three decades, the colours on these is superb, with NO creases, folds, fading, stains, or any other kind of damage. Overall, I'd rate them at a firm 9 out of 10. In well above average condition for being nigh on 33 years old.

There you go, some superb vintage wrappers for the KISS aficionado/collector.

I will post/ship these wrappers in VERY strong packaging WORLDWIDE! After the auction, the items and packaging will be weighed at the post office and the winner will be notified of the EXACT postage cost, purely depending on their location.

*NO hidden extras, I do NOT charge for ANY packing materials, etc. Please check my feedback and bid with confidence - thanks for looking and good luck!

Payment Details: I’m happy to accept - U.K. winner; cheque, postal order or PayPal.

U.S.A. & ‘Rest Of World’ winner: PayPal.

- If these methods aren’t suitable, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH FOR FURTHER PAYMENT OPTIONS and we can work something out. Swift payment ensures item will be sent the same or very next day payment is received. Or in the case of a cheque, the day it clears. Thank you.
