Default Pegasus prints!

I found these while browsing for posters

Pity they're in the USA!

Only the 2 based on Anne's stuff that I can find!

(How come I can only find posters that are out of the country?)

Cool posters. Is there anyone in the U.S. who could buy them for you and mail them to you. Or maybe you could have them sent to someone here then thay could mail them to you. I know nothing about international shipping cost.

It's not so much the costs as the handling! It's a pity I didn't spot these a couple of weeks back beforeNick's Dad went to Boston.

I have a print of A Womanly Talent that is signed by Freas. A friend sent it to me as a gift. I like it a lot! I have a signed trading card of A Bridle for Pegasus. Hmm, a small Freas/McCaffrey collection going, just need one more signed by Freas to be considered a collection.

Both of those posters have been offered on ebay several times. I know that person ships over seas. Not real sure of the cost, but you are also paying for the container, one of those poster mailer things.

It's the handling by the postal/ customs people- It takes forever and usually arrives slightly battered. My almost perfect textbook now has a layer of fluff glued to it due to the bad handling.

And remember that when I recently received my Michael Whelan posters they were indeed damaged despite beind well packed

I would be very careful (from now on) to buy (relatively expensive) posters unless I had the guarantee that damaged stuff would be replaced outright.

The "Hero" print is fantastic looking...I might have to add that to my ship collection even though it isn't exactly a "Helva" ship.

Edi, I hope that at some time in the future you will be able to find one that is located in the U.K.

Hans, Lets hope that after all of the hedious problems you have had lately with the post, that nothing else gets lost or dammaged...some treasures can't be replaced !!!

Edi, can you get it shipped by something like FedEx rather than the postal service? The Ebay seller would probably be willing to negotiate.

I have the 2 "Anne based" posters on my wall, cost about £16 for the 2, including shipping from the states.
Very nice and a little different from the rest.

Edith.......I have 3 copies of A Bridle For Pegasus and 1 copy of A Womanly Talent that I have left stored in a tube mailer for quite some time.....(my signed copy of the Pegasus poster is framed and hanging above my desk).....they came from the same seller who's website you listed. They are still as new and are very attractive prints........off hand, I don't know the shipping charge but if you want a set I will mail them to you for the cost of the tube mailer and shipping.......let me know............Sauchious (Dee)
