Clue find! Success at the flea market today!

Post by Mr. Sterling Silver » Tue Apr 23, 2019 7:05 pm

I visited a great, three-story, local flea market about a mile from my home today and found one of these!

This is a photo I found online and not actually a photo of the one I obtained. Mine seems to be missing the small certificate that tells you what issue number it is. There is a number on the box, but it's hard to read (and the vendor had stuck a price tag over it that was NOT easily removed :x ). I think it's 249. Does anyone know what this Stearman bi-plane cost when it was released? Just curious. I paid $15 for it. Didn't realize the certificate was missing until I got it home. The ornament hanger, which the box says is included, also appears to be missing. Oh, well ...

That is so cool! Just when you think you know everything with a Clue logo on it. Something else pops out.

Interesting, this is likely the strangest branding and licensing strategy in the whole Cluedo franchise.
