There is a market in Ferndale, Michigan called the "Rust Belt" market, its a former TJ Maxx turned into a "vintage/crafts" market and there is a guy there that makes up fantasy event posters using names of nearby towns and such. They are a lot of fun actually.... "Belle Isle Motocross" and such. No such thing ever happened on Belle Isle ! "Riverside Drag Strip" never existed. Even puts dates and all, and uses the appropriate graphics and stylings. Have a look... http://www.electricvector.com

Not even AM circuits, but "Am" circuits. What are those? :roll:

Those are first person circuits - very desirable features. You wouldn't want second person "Are", or even worse, third person "Is" circuits now would you?? :lol:

You want "to-be" circuits.

Nice stuff! I like the sexy alien girl. She'd be prefect for the next edition of Playthings of the Past.

Update - A new version of the Philco Boomerang ad is now for sale, missing the Jetsons cartoon characters.
My guess is there was a communication between the artist and the Warner Bros legal team. :x
Maybe not, maybe the time warp between 1949 and 1962 was only temporary.

Good news if you bought one of the originals, it may have collector value it didn't have before. :D

He has a very good selection of signs for sale and many have an authentic look that would enhance any radio display. The RCA Xmas girl ad has a spelling error "There tops in tone ..." should be 'They're'.

I saw the “predicta” version while searching online and thought the same thing. What la lazy attempt to cash in on people’s nostalgia. They probably knocked the whole thing out in five minutes. I agree,why would they make something catering to collectors of vintage items using cheesy anachronistic fonts and clip art instead of creating something that looks convincing and period correct? That would be like reproducing a predicta tv and putting a digital channel readout instead of the rotary dial. I had to laugh at the inclusion of the Jetsons and their space car in the philco “boomerang” radio ad! About as authentic as a Johnny Rockets diner is to a real one back in the 1950’s.
Obviously they sell,and the guy is likely not a collector or he’d be passionate enough to produce something with more thought put into it. Maybe he can do one with a wulitzer 1015 jukebox and a 1957 Chevy in it. Because those are both 50’s things,right. :roll:
It’s always stuck me as funny that every fake 50’s diner always has to have a 1015 style jukebox which was a 1946 design. Seeburgs ruled 50’s
