Default Collecting Highlight (29) - Ship Who Searched promotional cap

I'm awful late with my collecting highlight and I hope you'll forgive me for it. I'm so incredibly busy these days, professionally as well as private, I need at least 48 hours in the day to get my stuff done (let alone done in time).

Time shortage did make me think: I need an attractive collectors highlight but... an easy one. And you know, I just thought of an item which is exactly the thing I needed: nice, rare and almost unknown so that I can't come up with a single internet reference to it and something for which estimates on what it is worth (because I have absolutely no comparable material) are pure guesswork.

Hey, I hear you say, you must either have found it somewhere or seen and handled it if you are able to post a picture! Well, yes, I have but that was in the holy of holiest only Yep, Anne's office; where there were lying a few on top of a topmost shelf with books.

I know we covered several promotional items for this particular book in other threads: The Ship Who Searched, Anne's co-production with another favourite author of mine, Mercedes Lackey (published in 1992). The famous Ted E. Bear among them and the promotional display with poster (which I happen to own a copy of). On the flip side of this poster the promotional cap (there called a promotional hat!) is mentioned. It also gives the number that were made: 2000! (how many reached the shops and the fans?).

Well, to cut a long story short (didn't I manage to drag out this text rather well?) here is the item: a promotional cap of what I think is white cotton. Now anybody who owns one or has seen a copy of this: report!

Excellent stretching of text, Hans!!!
How neat to see this! Another of those unheard of collectible items. Great item for spur of the moment scramble!

Wow, I've never heard of it either! You realize you'll have to post an image of the poster too, right?

hmm, maybe you did, or some of those views. Can you show an enlargement of the part that mentions the hats?

Hans, Very good job with this Highlight, I think the Highlights are one of my most favorite parts of MoM. I love seeing all the different things that are out there having to do with Anne's writings.

@Becky...You don't have one of these well I guess it's good... this way you have something to go and look for too...LOL !!!

LOL! I'm finding that there are quite a few things I don't have, Maelin! I'm just glad there are still things for me to find.
