Apple Think Different poster set

Hi all,

I used to work for Apple Education back in the day. I was digging through some old boxes in my garage today (having a clear out) and came across a sealed boxed set dated 2000. The part number on the box is L04997A. I'm not looking to sell these, as I think I'll hang onto them for 10 or 20 years and see what happens.

I can't find that part number when I do a Google search. There are photos on the front (Gandhi, Einstein, Lennon, etc), but only 6 and I think people have said the box contained 10? I've attached a few photos.

Would be interesting to know what's in them, how many, and the current realistic value (if anyone has an idea).

Large Apple TD Banners

I currently have three of the 50" x 50" Think Different vinyl banners on eBay. They are the Alfred Hitchcock, Gandhi, and astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Very rare, reasonably priced.

just joined the Forum, hope I've posted properly.

I actually just sold 10 apple think different posters as a set on eBay. Some lady just gave them to me for free! I'll always wonder what they would have been worth if I had kept them. However at this point in time they were worth more in money than to keep.

3 Bus Stop Posters in very good condition

[QUOTE=Tiggs;13324798]Would be an interesting project and I've partially done based on my knowledge and research. To complete the task you suggest, you're looking at easily 60+ different official apple posters as well as at least 7 different sizes. Would take bit of effort to gather all the images and hopefully others contribute.

For example, real Buzz Aldrin posters, while quite rare, were made in several different sizes. There exists the 24x36, the amazing bus shelter 48x72, the New Zealand 18x28, and the Apple Asia 28x40.

Guess might work that myself or others could add pictures to the rough guide I have started. Here's a copy of it for reference and might be a good starting point:

This guide is meant to educate about the history and variety of Apple Think Different Posters that Apple produced as part of their Think Different Campaign from 1997+. It was a historic campaign and reflected the huge shift in Apple that was occurring with the return of Steve Jobs who brought in TBWA/Chiat Day that ignited the new marketing campaign. I also want people to appreciate the huge scope and variety of Think Different Posters that were produced.

While some people may think that Apple only made some 24x36 and 11x17 posters, this would be grossly inaccurate and only reflect their ignorance. In fact, some of the first posters Apple produced were among the largest, rarest, and by far most desirable posters of the entire campaign. These were the 'bus shelter' posters, sized 48x72, and printed at great cost on very heavy paper stock. There are at least 7 different sizes of genuine Apple posters that were made for reference. I will also note poster rarity on a scale of 1-5 with 1 being impossible to find/acquire and 5 being highly produced/common.

- The first Apple TD(Think Different) poster, aka 'The Crazy Ones' sized 18x24. Rarity 2. This poster is named as such given its title and consists of all the spoken words by Richard Dreyfuss in the first TD ad. It also has several small pictures of people from the ad such as Einstein, Picasso, Davis, etc. and a copy of it is also in the first 2 pages of the TD Book. Very few of these were produced, small distribution as promotional giveaways, never sold publicly. Not many survived and largely unknown by most people.

- 48x72 'Bus Shelter' Posters. Rarity 1. These were the first 'portrait' posters produced and used as advertising tools at bus stops. Never offered publicly and were made in very small quantities at huge expense(heavy paper stock plus large size). Most ended up being destroyed. 7 different ones were produced, in order of desirability: M.Ali, Buzz Aldrin, Einstein, Picasso(facing/hand on head), Ghandhi, A. Hitchcock and Thomas Edison.

I stashed 3 of what appear to be original of the 48 X 72 Bus Stop Posters in my attic 15 years ago. They are on the very heavy paper and am confident they are orginal. They are in very good condition. Ali, Picasso and Edison. How would I go about getting these valued?

Einstein Think Different Poster

I had posted this about 6 years ago, but thought I might ask again, because I have read on some websites that there was only one size of these posters. However, I really think this is authentic because of the fact (as stated below) that it was a display poster (not for sale) in a Art/Graphic supply store (and not purchased from a person) in early 1998 just after the campaign started. I do believe it was printed in the UK where paper sizes are different, lending a reason for the different size. I was wondering if anyone knows about these posters.

(original post below)

I have an Einstein Think Different Apple poster that I got in 1998 while living in Ireland in 1998. It was hanging in a graphics/art supply store (I am a graphic designer) and I begged and pleaded with them to let me have it. It measures 27 inches x (about) 38.25 inches, although I'm sure it was produced in a metric size.

It has a copyright line running vertically from the bottom left corner that reads: 1997 Apple Computer, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Albert Einstein licensed by Roger Richman Agency, Beverly Hills, CA.

I haven't been able to find any like this online and was wondering if anyone has any info about it (I don't believe they were sold). And also how I would find out the value of it?
