back in th day (1990 I believe) Queen (asnd a bunch of other bands) released a whole bunch of very big posters - probably about twuce the size of the 'normal' size poster you'd buy - Approx. 6 ft by 3 ft I'd say. I brought one for the "I'm Going Slightly Mad" single release (with the big monster thing on it). Does anyone know if these things are worth anything these days?

60x40 posters were intended to be stuck to fences, walls etc, and I think are now largely illegal.

The market for them is fairly small, so it's hard to put prices to them, but I did sell an original One Vision & LOMO for £50 a year or so ago.

Incidentally, HFE, LML & AWT from MiH were all promoted by two posters side by side, making a total of 60x80. Good luck finding wall space for them.

Thanks Guys.

I used to have it on my wall back in the day (we're talking 15 years ago now) - It's just rolled up in a tube with a bunch of other posters from thereabouts.

Speaking of Large posters.Does anyone remember the Large Wall posters that were around in the seventies?I'll never forget the poster that I procured on the Boardwalk in Wildwood,N.J.in the summer of '77.It had some great pictures of the band from the ADATR tour.I especially remember a great picture of Freddie with his red and white striped shorts and suspenders.That same year I won the NOTW album on one of those spinning wheel games.I really wish I still had that poster.that was a great summer for a 13 year old Queen fan!

Yeah, I've got that Innuendo (the single) one too. Won't be worth much anymore, though. I've had it on my bedroom ceiling (yes-yes! It did not fit my half curving attick walls ;-) for littele short of 10 years. Got smudgy from dust and got small holes in all 4 corners.

I've got the billboard poster for Roger's Cyberbarn gig, billboard poster for Brian's '98 UK tour, billboard for Brian's gig in Rotterdam '93, and billboard for WWRY musical in Cologne (I hate the musical, but nevertheless ;-)

And talking about HUGE ones, lol...
I've got a wide billboard poster (in two parts) for QPR in Cologne, which is TWICE those Innuendo's :-)

btw:
P_G; that Great Pretender one is coohool!! ;-)

Ive got a couple of billboard posters that were 'borrowed' from a couple of venues of Roger's 'Electric Fire' tour.I have no idea how much they cost. Probably not very much.
For those of you who know me, know that I have problems with these posters staying on the wall and regularly I wake up to find myself pinned to my bed by a 7ft Roger(a girl can dream).

I own a really BIG poster, of wich only 2 copies exist. It is the very first testprint for the Innuendo promotion campaign. It was withdrawn as it has a thick black lining, like a border, on the outside, marking the outside-size wich in the eyes of Queen looked too much like one of those cards one gets at funerals...or letters one receives when somebody has passed away...Freddie was still alive at that point, and the press was already hunting his home then...in order to not provoce more rumours, this design was never made available. In absolute stunning mint/mint super condition, i will sell this one-off collectable for € 500,- only. mail me for serious reactions only on : basjesplace@queenzone.com it is very very rare indeed...and unbelievably beautiful.....


lifelong loyal and dedicated Queenfan.
