Callaway Cars was talking of making them again in heavy vinyl, but not sure they ever did. The price is what it is... DOn't like it, don't buy, but the seller is proud of theirs, and rightfully so. We all want the most out of what we have, right?
Hell yes. I wasn't kidding. I hope it does go for $400+, and I would probably put mine up there. I've got the Speedster and L88 banners.

I own the LM, the speedster and recently acquired the C16.

Thinking about the new batch Callaway is selling I like the Alfa too.

I hope mine are not cracking and falling apart, did you hang them in a sunny place?

They were hanging in the back of the garage, out of sunlight. Just got brittle.

Did you buy the reproduced ones from Callaway, or the originals?

That one was origonal and it sold well. I sold one just like it a while back for around $300. The reproductions look HORRIBLE. Ive reported that guy to both Ebay and BFG for copyright enfringment but they keep on letting him list them. Its good to see people recognize the real thing still ( like callaway converted aerobody cars..... but I digress). UV rays are a definate killer for these. Even if they were exposed early in their life. I'm sure there were more than one firm tasked in creating these, which may explain the issue with the banner Chris had. I have an N.O.S. Red LM banner in which the edges were never bound or rings installd. It is very soft & pliable. My goal is to get it dry mounted/framed once the new place is finished. I'm out of wall space now.
