Olympic Posters Strike Gold: Summer of Sport 2012

24th July 2012

The Antiques Trade Gazette feature AntikBar's original vintage Olympic poster collection: "The 2012 Games have finally hurdled into London with the start on July 27. The Olympics are just one theme of the speciality posters that online dealer AntikBar sells online and at fairs... For an online business, fairs are a good way to attract poster and emphemera collectors other than web customers... also on social media; Poster of the Day is very popular on Twitter. There has been growing interest in the collection of Olympics and crossover sports posters since early this year with press coverage of the Games ensuring a steady stream of sales." The full article is on page 47, issue 2051

Also: the latest AntikBar blog article "Summer of Sport 2012: The Olympic Games" is now on our WordPress page - a short online exhibition of original vintage posters ending with the inspirational words of the Olympic Motto:

“The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.”
