Click to see the originals!

Arcade cards were originaly sold in vending machines in the 1960's. They were sold as individual member of the Beatles or as a group shot. Reproductions are known to exist and were sold in the 1970's. To spot a reproduction it's easy : reproductions generally do not have printed information on the back of the card. The pictures of the reproductions can be fuzzy with lack of detail. The originals have cardstock that is made of yellow/brown paper stock material.
