Marvel Third Eye posters have been on my list of Holy Grails for years, and I never dreamed I would find one in the wild. Last weekend, I found ten! These posters have a huge following and there are usually one or two available on any given day on eBay, but be prepared to pay over $200 each. I am still pinching myself to have found these.
If you dropped acid in the early 70’s there’s a good chance you had one of these posters hanging on your walls. Trust me when I say the photos do not do these posters justice. The colors are day-glo and so vibrant that you want to reach for your sunglasses, so flip on the blacklight, ease back in the beanbag chair, and nirvana is not far away.
“I’ll lie still… and silent… strip my mind of earthly thoughts…” — trippy!
The orange and black colors on this Captain America and Falcon poster are stunning!
This Medusa poster is beautiful! This is the one I will be framing and putting up in the cave.
In addition to the ten posters, I was thrilled to get this extremely rare display poster. It is a two-sided poster on heavy cardboard, and was used to advertise the Third Eye postcards. The artwork on this poster is pretty bad, but that kind of adds to the charm.
In addition to the Marvel posters and postcards, Third Eye produced puzzles as well, and finding any of these items is difficult (and expensive!). I believe there were 24 posters released in the series, so now I have 14 more to track down!
