Picture of the Week: So Cool, It's Chilling

Here's a great 1968 magazine advert for the Barnabas glow-in-the-dark poster, one of the earliest pieces of merchandise to feature Collinwood's resident vampire. "Here at last, in all his gory glory..." gushed the copy, adding that potential customers should: "Hang it in your pad, your den, your bedroom – wherever you want to curdle your blood."

I have one of these posters. Bottom left corner has 1968, Dan Curtis Productions, Inc. All rights reserved. The poster still glows in the dark! I have never seen another for sale or other wise but there still has to be others out there.

I have one also!
It glows in the dark too, got it on ebay off an ex-employee of the company that manufactured these back in the early 70s.
My original one (from 1970) has long since been trashed.
Wonder if these are the only 2 left in existence?
What condition is yours in?
Mine is MINT, had it framed alongside an original comic-book ad for the poster.
