PostSubject: Cool vintage Maiden/KISS merch order forms   Mon Sep 07, 2015 7:23 pm

Just in case some of you missed my post in the "Music Haul" thread yesterday, my 8-year old son and I made an interesting find at our local-yokel thrift store: when we walked into the store, there was a big pile of random junk in the front lobby. This is the so-called "free crap" pile, i.e. non-sellable stuff that's on its way out to the dumpster. On top of the pile was a stack of albums. I noticed KISS' Rock and Roll Over sticking out and said to my 8 year old son "Cool, check this out dude, it's one of Dad's favorite KISS albums." I then realized that the sleeve was empty - there was no LP in it. The guy behind the counter sez "Yeah, they're all empty." I'm like "Who the hell donates record covers without the records?"

My son suddenly pipes up "Can I take some? I can hang them on my bedroom wall!" That sounded like a neat idea (and a way to save some of these classic covers from becoming landfill) so I let him grab a handful (the counter guy was gonna give'em to him for nothing but I insisted on paying a quarter apiece for 'em). He came home with the covers to Maiden's Number of the Beast and Maiden Japan (!!), Twisted Sister's Ruff Cuts (!!), and KISS' Rock and Roll Over and Love Gun.

Even cooler is when we got 'em home and were hanging them on his wall, we found vintage merchandise order forms inside the Number of the Beast and Love Gun sleeves. Way cool! Here's some pix. The KISS order form was 2-sided, the Maiden one was one-sided. I thought you guys might get a kick out of seeing this vintage stuff and the prices they were charging. Ahhh, memories!!







Hey, there's no expiration date on the coupons on either †merch form - does anyone think I can still get a year's membership in the KISS Army for five bucks, a patch for a dollar, or the 1977 Tour Book for $3.00? How about a Maiden wristband for 6.00 or a baseball jersey for $12?

Very cool, I remember buying a few vinyls and they would have these old order forms in them

Interesting and nostalgic, if only those were today's prices.

Man, that $6 Maiden wristband would be pretty sweet!!

I remember picking up a vinyl copy of Joe Perry's Let the Music Do The Talking years ago and tucked inside was an original album review and pic of Joe. I gave the album to Ult and he scanned the pic as the header on his Joe Perry page...

He's 8, so he likes whatever Daddy likes right now, haha. I'm not gonna get too used to it cuz I'm sure he'll move on to other things as he gets older. For example, his 12 year old brother is listening to a lot of country right now (barf)....
