Has anyone seen one of these before, I think its a promo card from when the novels were released but correct me if I'm wrong?https://s12.photobucket.com/user/Planetmelmac/media/2b6b8f90-a6b4-4185-9664-ecc3cd4943c5.jpg.html

Wasn't that put out when they broadcast repeats of series 5 on Granada Plus?

I don' think so as it says ITV on the card, I'm thinking its 60's. A friend saw it at a framing shop but unfortunately it had been sold and they didn't have any info on it.

I'm using Dave Rogers' "Avengers Anew" as my mouse mat and it's in there, page 109. "The entry ticket for the fashion show held in 1967" with a big full page reproduction of it, that one has the text the other way up (Steed is at the top of the card, Emma at the bottom) so I guess there were two variants.

Thank you. I knew I had seen it before. Most of my Avengers books are at my parents at the moment including Avengers Anew, thanks for letting me know.

Stunning photos of the fashion show, I bet there are not many of those tickets still around. Very Happy

Thanks - I should have checked my books, page 109 of The Avengers Anew has the same information.

Wait, there was that sort of fandom merch for sale in the 60s? I thought it was a more recent invention, I guess you do learn things every day.

Novels, annuals, a newspaper comic strip (and also in kids' TV Comic), a fashion range, some toys like a shooting game, can't remember it all; the 70s had some more with the New Avengers, like toy cars and dolls. But most of it was professionally-produced, I don't recall any fan stuff until the 1980s with the fanzines.

Mike doesn't sell anything from his site, he just lists items that were released. (And he hasn't updated it in YEARS)

I had one for years and was always under the illusion that it was a ticket from the 1960's fashion show, it isn't. It is simply a playing card that was included with one of the Avengers novels published back in the 60's. A publicity item for the return of series 5 in the form of a book mark. They aren't easily found, but not really that rare either.
