Default Bill Thomas sticker and signature

Came across these today looking through some stuff. I bought these back at the beginnings of Ebay. A guy (first name Tim) claimed this was Bills signature, and these were originals from Bill's shop. Heavy-good quality gold metallic sticker (only one with a sig). I really don't care if their real, just curious what you people think......

I remember seeing repops on Ebay 20 years ago. Most vintage 50 year old paper products have an old book smell.

The original Bill Thomas decals were water slide type, not a sticker.

My friend's original one owner 64 Chevrolet still has a Bill Thomas water slide decal in the window that he installed back in the day.

Default Bill Thomas Decals

There was one peel & stick decal offered by Bill Thomas. It read Bill Thomas equipped. I have seen one example that did have the decal company name and instructions printed on the reverse side. This same decal is pictured in two photos in the 1970 1/2 Bill Thomas catalog. It appears they were included if you purchased something. The two versions of the water slide decals both read Bill Thomas race cars.
Hope this helps. Thanks for sharing.

Marty

It may be a real.

and had some stuff signed

Yes JoeC, I just found the envelope that the stickers came in and They were mailed from Maryville TN, which is ratpacks posted location. I think I might still have the Ebay page printout that shows the acution, I'll look for that next. Thanks for the link, and to the rest of the posters.

Actually searching the guys name, it would seem he would not be one to be selling fake stuff.
