Oops. I think I just sold a rare Spider-Man poster for $5



This is a thing I discovered a little too late on a Spider-man item I recently sold online. I was at a garage sale the other day, there were like laminated cutouts from newspapers being sold and one of them I got was this gigantic spider-man color ad from the '80s. It's laminated and it says "Frankly, I'd rather have an apple." Eat fruit. Eat smart.

I posted it online and sold it for five bucks.

THEN I started looking up exactly what this poster was.

It's from a commercial ad campaign for the spider-man animated series that was in the 80s. They tried to get kids to eat smart obviously, it's in the name of the stupid thing.



Each commercial would be like:
Spider-man saves the city in some way shape or form and then at the end the mayor would try to give him some sort of reward and Spiderman would say

"Frankly, I just want an apple."

There were a few different scenarios and different fruit. Then he would fly away and tell everybody to eat smart.

And that's what this is from.

The item I sold was a full sheet newspaper ad and if you look even closer you can see like Snuffy Smith and all those other things on the other side of it.

As I was looking it up I couldn't find any other pictures of this ad online or nothing.

And that's when it occurred to me right after I sold it - Nobody has this! This is a rare item! Like, this is something that doesn't exist anymore and I sold it for five bucks.

I should have auctioned it. Live and learn I guess.

Sale bin.

I'm not gonna pay that much for an idea I'm not sure is going to work yet. If it does work I'll let you know.

Damage.

Although I just realized that I refunded the shipping cost too which I probably didn't need to do. Oh well, live and learn.
