Anyone interested in having this? It's got to go so any decent offer will be accepted. Pickup in Palmy North preferred or make your own arrangements.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Neat… What are the dimensions, and how good of condition is it? What's the timeframe for picking it up?

Thanks!

Really enjoyed those Games - remember them well. I was heading into 7th Form, and was a member of the school Rowing VIII. Every morning after training we would get back to the house and flick on the telly. Really got into the Lawn Bowls :)
The weightlifters were all training at our school gym.

Cool poster.

I might definitely be interested. That's right up my alley, that is, and we're putting together a new house, so wall decoration would be cool. It looks framed, is it under glass, what condition, etc?

Stupid statement about framed, given the title. Sorry. :P

It's approx. 60cm wide by 82cm high. 

 

It's in really good condition although there are a few slight chips in the black paint that frames the image. These can be easily touched up. They are paint chips on the top front surface of the wall hanging, no chips in the board itself. Purely cosmetic. 

 

This was always as it shows in the photo.  Exactly how it's manufactured, I'm not sure. It's on fibre board but not like a poster stuck onto board as there is no ridge or edge that you can feel along the edge of the "poster". It's laminated somehow but laminate doesn't go right to the edge of the board and there's no edge.  

 

The history of this is that prior to the start of the games this was up on the wall of offices in Auckland's CBD. I can't recall which company but it's likely to have been at Eagle Technologies because I was often in there and I socialised with the family. Anyway, I remember admiring the wall hanging and expressing a wish to have one. After the games concluded, a courier turned up at my office with this. I've loved it and looked after it ever since but cannot take it with me. 

 

it's a bit of games history as well as Unisys history. Which is why I put it here to let Geekzoners have a crack at it. I haven't advertised it anywhere else - it deserves a home where someone can appreciate it.

I need it to be picked up as soon as possible but definitely before 20th November.
