This page allows U.S. and international buyers to purchase an Official Blondie Fan Club Collector's Package, view the upgrade options, and see other items I have for sale. Most of these items are over 30 years old, and several of the items in the Collector's Packages have become very depleted, and there are no additional supplies available once they are gone. I can't guarantee the quantities remaining are 100% accurate on this page.

Click on the links next to each item to see the photographs of the items.

Contact me directly with your interests and requests for quotations or to reserve items. Please provide your location to get an estimate on shipping charges, which vary considerably.

 

Questions?

If you have a question, send an email to blk1@blondie.net (or click this link) for a quick reply. If you are serious about making a purchase but need more time to pay, you may also email to request a merchandise reservation for your custom package.

Contents of the package

Buy now Collector's Package
Price $45.00 + actual shipping cost (2 lb. 6 oz.) $14.00 by Priority Mail Flat Rate anywhere in the U.S.
(some U.S. locations cost less)
International shipments are available, postage cost varies by location. (contact me)

Please note: some items have sold out, and many are now running low. If you want a package, now is the time to purchase or reserve these items.

All of the items are in perfect, mint condition (no damage, smudges, fading, or yellowing) except as noted and with the following exceptions:
1. Most of the fold-out lyrics posters show some ink smearing on the back side due to handling at the printer. Some of these may also have a very small folded-over point at the very edge of the corner.
2. The small membership cards and large membership certificates curl slightly because of being stored in shrink-wrapped packs rather than stored flat. I'm sure they can be flattened out.

Upgrade Options

There are four kinds of upgrades:
1. Large 5x7" band member postcards (featuring different photos from the 4x6" cards).
2. Add-on items not included in the standard Collector's Package.
3. Additional quantities of items that are (or were) included in the standard Collector's Package.
4. Miscellaneous items for sale that were not part of the Official Blondie Fan Club.

1. Large (5x7) band member postcards

Quantities of these are very limited. If you purchase a Collector's Package, you may, if you choose, also purchase the large format band member postcards as supplies last.

There were apparently two printings of the Debbie Harry card. The photograph and the text are both identical, but the photograph is printed darker in the one of the printings and is consequently slightly better quality. The other band member cards all appear to be from the same printing.

The following pricing information applies (available quantity is the original quantity from December 2006, not the current remaining number; offer ends when depleted):

The cards offered are in excellent condition and inspected individually. Some cards that are imperfect or have been slightly damaged due to storage and handling are available individually at a significant discount; email for more information if you are interested. Unfortunately, no Jimmy Destri cards were in the lot at all, so none are available here.

Please note that the "autographs" on the cards are printed onto the cards. They are not hand-written signatures, but are authentic signatures that were replicated onto these cards though not signed by hand on each item.

Blondie Tour Postcards - photos coming soon
I have a number of postcards printed by venues in 2012, 2013, and 2014 for promoting and advertisting Blondie gigs.

$3.00 each

Finally, I have many items that are imperfect, such as postcards with nicked corners (great if you want to actually use them as postcards), tour programs and magazines with minor scuffs or other imperfections, and newsletters that don't lay perfectly flat because of how they were stored. If you are interested in any imperfect items at greatly reduced prices, email me.
