Default White Dragon Promotional Button

Perhaps a collecting highlight here. I saw this on ebay on my pretty regular Anne McCaffrey searches and snatched this up as quickly as I could click. A Del Rey promotional button from the original release of the White Dragon. Perhaps Hans or someone knows more about these and their rarity?

I thought I, or somebody else, already did a Collecting Highlight on this. I specifically remember making a photograph of it together with a pen Anne gave me and a glass of whisky... but I can't find it so maybe it was a regular post?

It is a genuine Collectors Item though. And there's more material connected with it. I seem to remember a cardboard bookstand, a poster and stickers.


Found it!

Indeed not a Collecting Highlight but a discussion on White Dragon ephemera you might like, Kindan. And with the photo I remember but Maelin moved her photo of the bumper sticker

Good find Kindan, you would think there are many of these buttons but no... you don't see them very often

Hans, I expect the glass of whisky was drunk

I knew you guys would have info. Bumper Sticker and T-shirt would be cool! I'll keep my eyes peeled. Someone should really have a café press site for like some generic pern-related stuff like T-shirts (just do like a silhouette of a dragon in gold, brown, green, blue and white for example, or weyr symbols and the like. in fact, could probably do both and have it customizable on there... how cool). Even if it's a tiny amount of income for those that hold the license, should be helpful, right?

I got one of these pins several years ago. A great addition to my collection.
