Recent Spectrum 1988 Sale....

Post by phatmedia » 27 Jan 2015, 09:28

Is this legit? Sam pointed out the dates are different. Front says Mon 11 Apr and the back says Sun 26 June both are 1988.

Also I could be wrong but the shine in the pic makes it look laminated. Never a good sign. Click the link for larger images.
I did wonder if the seller has listed the wrong photos together but then read ...
"someone has stuck a drawing pin in the top" ... you can see the drawing pin hole in the top of both pics. :-?

The one we have listed on phatmedia for Spectrum 11 April 88 has a different back.

Hmm, that does look decidedly dodgy.. However, I guess it could have been a print error back in 1988.. and if it is laminated that raised even more questions..

I've got 3 or 4 spectrums ( London and Bham ) from '88 -'90! All a6 size and all have a coated finish that might give the impression (in a photo ) of them being laminated. Quality wise I think they were a few years ahead of their time. Think the opening night was April 11th and maybe that was just left as it was on the flyer as a nod to the start of acid house!!! A few of the '88 flyers have the date/city blacked out and the flyer for the weeks events in Ibiza during summer '88 has 'Monday's on the front!!! Check last years 'highest prices fetched' list and you'll see the flyer listed, sold for £32. So yeah I think was a legit flyer and a bargain at £23 considering it was mint :-BD
