There's also a fair amount of the black ink on the back side of the poster, almost resembling an ink bleed, caused from being stacked on top of the previous poster. - This 2nd printing poster has been out of print for a number of years and a cleaner copy of this poster went for a hefty amount in a 2008 Heritage Auction, and on eBay in 2017 - I acquired this poster from Globe Poster directly, when they only had this copy left, since it had significant black ink bleed, etc. and they had to dig it out of the back room for me - Ultra Mega Rare - Beautiful A-/B+ to B+ condition - Inquire for Availability / Current Price - **Extra Shipping costs for this Godzilla size window card poster
