This is a RARE VINTAGE ORIGINAL 1966 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN POSTER, it’s VERY BIG, and it measures about 42 inch by 26 1/2 inches. This 1960’s Amazing Spiderman poster was released at the height of the MMMS (Merry Marvel Marching Society 60’s Fan Club), and it was produced by a company called Personality Posters, who also produced a 1966 poster of the Incredible Hulk. This scarce Spider-man poster features the timeless Spidey pose originated by Steve Ditko, who along with Stan Lee, was the co-creator of Spidey back in 1962 in the silver age Amazing Fantasy 15 comic book. This’66 Spidey poster looks MUCH bigger in person, and it was made back when a poster was a poster! This is the ultimate Spider-man pose, and this classic image art has been used over the years for various toys, for a 1967 Milton Bradley jigsaw puzzle, for the Amazing Spider-man comic cover logo (redrawn by John Romita Sr), etc. This is one of the very first Spider-man posters of all time, and one of the RAREST SPIDER-MAN POSTERS OF ALL TIME. Although Steve Ditko was the first to draw Spider-man in this pose, I believe this giant-size Spider-man poster’s artwork is by Marie Severin, an extremely talented Marvel Bullpen cover art/interior art artist in her own right (not to mention a fantastic person). This is so early in Marvel’s history that Spider-man actually has his mouth showing through his mask! Here’s some further history on this Spider-man poster: Just to clarify, this is not the little 17 x 11 inch’66 Spidey poster that was part of an 8 pack posters kit by the Merry Marvel Marching Society that showed the Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, etc. And furthermore, this vintage 1960’s giant-size poster predates the 25 or 26 set of 1971 Marvel Third Eye blacklight posters by 5 years, it predates the 9 or 10 set of 1970 Marvelmania posters by 4 years, and is MUCH rarer! This giant-size Spider-man poster was released when Marvel Mania was still in it’s infancy and was no doubt printed in fairly small quantities. The probably aren’t many left in existence, and most of the few remaining posters are not likely to be intact or in nice condition. IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES (see photos): This Spidey poster still retains it’s gorgeous colors, but has paper tanning, pinholes, minor creases and crinkles, and some small tears along some of the edges. With this in mind, I’d only grade this poster as “very good/vg” condition (using comic book grading terms). I’m 100 percent certain that many poster collectors and poster sellers would probably grade this poster higher, but I prefer to grade more conservatively. This doesn’t change how rare this Amazing Spiderman poster is one bit, and as I mentioned above, the colors are still gorgeous and it looks MUCH LARGER in person. It’s incredible this scarce poster even survived the 1960’s, 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s, the 2000’s, and now. There can’t be many of these posters left in existence after all these years, and there weren’t that many made to begin with. PLEASE READ TERMS BELOW.
