Post Selling my CATS brochure collection on eBay
Hi there - wow, it's been a while. I used to prowl these forums almost 10 years ago and it has sure come a long way. Glad to see the CATS community is still going strong.

So. I was digging through boxes in my basement when I came across a whole box filled with my CATS collection. I remember spending quite a lot of money on this stuff back in the day, and to tell you the truth I have no idea what it'd be worth now or if there is still an interest in collecting this stuff. What I basically have is a big stack of souvenir brochures from various productions - Germany, Japan, Canada, USA, UK, and Australia.

I've just put a souvenir brochure from the 1999 Nagoya, Japan production up on eBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3DSelling

I guess this is just a test to see if it sells or not... because I have loads more and I'm not going to spend the time putting them all up if there isn't any interest. I've been out of the loop for so long that the rare brochures I have might not even be so rare anymore! If anyone wants a full list of what I've got, I'll gladly oblige. I'm just hoping I can send these brochures off to good homes where people can enjoy them instead of sitting in a box collecting dust.

I got the rest of my Japanese stuff up on Ebay if anyone is interested.

1993 SB - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0409527015

1988 SB - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0409530655

Posters - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0409535919



Also, finally got around to making a list of the stuff I'm looking to get rid of (SB = Souvenir brochure). Ideally I'd like to put most of this up on Ebay, but feel free to PM about specific items and we might be able to work something out.


-=JAPAN=- (These are currently up on Ebay)

4 small Japanese promotional posters from various productions
1993 SB, Shiki Theatrical Company
1988 SB, Shiki Theatrical Company

-=AUSTRALIA=-
1985 SB, Sydney
1989 SB, Perth
1999 "Cats - Run Away to the Circus" SB (Can someone fill me in on what happened to this production? Was it a success? How long did it run? This was probably the last Cats item I collected, then lost interest.)

-=UK=-
1983 SB
1986 SB
1988 SB
1990 SB
1994 SB
May 1997 SB
Dec 1997 SB
1998 SB
May 1999 SB
Nov 1999 SB
2000 SB

-=CANADA=-
1985 SB, Toronto (I have 2 copies of this for some reason)

-=US=-
NY Wintergarden SB
1999 "The Year of the Cats" Calendar
US Tour 1 SB
US Tour 2 SB
US Tour 3 SB
US Tour 4 SB

-=GERMANY=-
1986 SB, Hamburg
1996 SB, Hamburg
1998 SB, Hamburg
???? SB, Hamburg (For the life of me I can't find a year on this one. It's very similar to the '96 ... so I'm guessing it's '97 maybe.)

Toured Australia and NZ, very successful, due to cheap tickets and every seat good. Did one round and then appears to have been shipped to South Africa, and consequently became the World Tour.

Wow! I want it all! :P I'm not too rich at the moment, but I think it might be worth investing in some of these... Would combining postage make it cheaper than the ebay prices for shipping?

I would love the 85 and 89 Australian ones, but I have no money. At all.

I sould point out that the Perth one is 2000, not 1999.

I just put up several auctions on Ebay.... sorry for my hiatus!

http://shop.ebay.com/the_beckster84/m.h ... m=&_ipg=25

Souvenir brochures from Germany, Canada and Australia.

Yes I do ship internationally... and if you win several of my auctions I will combine them in one package to save on shipping costs!

Hey, sorry to be a bother, but I figured I'd ask here rather than through eBay...

Could you show us a few more images to help identify the german brochures? Specifically the ones you're not sure of the year? See, I can't tell whether I have a couple of those already, and I don't want to accidentally wind up with a second copy...

:oops:

Or if anyone else recognises the photos and can tell me what year/s they're from...?

Sorry... couldn't figure out the best way to link the images in these forums so I just uploaded them to my Flickr account.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/i_dreamr/

The order is a bit messed up but I labeled each image with the corresponding year it is. However, for the two that I'm not sure on the year I labeled #1 and #2.

#1 = http://cgi.ebay.com/CATS-the-Musical-So ... 911.c0.m14


#2 = http://cgi.ebay.com/CATS-the-Musical-So ... 911.c0.m14


These two brochures are very similar except the production/cast photos are different. Also #1 has the drawings of each characters, #2 doesn't. Hope this helps.
