Space Invader Invasion Kit Signed By Franck Slama +map Banksy Revs Graffiti Obey:
Offered is an original complete unused Invasion Kit from street art legend Space Invader, dating from 2003. Here's the back story: Some time in 2003 I picked up a few wheat paste flyers from New York City graffiti and street art pioneer Revs (Cost/Revs) from an seller. After winning the items I was contacted by a man named Franck who was interested in obtaining any Revs items I might have (this was back before starting hiding user ID's). Through a series of emails we worked out a deal where I'd mail copies of the flyers I had, and in exchange Franck would send me one of his Invasion Kits. I was aware of Space Invader at the time and thought it'd be a nice addition to my collection. The Invasion Kit arrived sometime in October of 2003 - I opened it once carefully and then stored it away in a dry place until this week.
Offered is the complete kit as sent to me, including the original mailer envelope with Franck Slama's printed signature and address written in ink. The postmark is dated October 13th, 2003, from Paris, France. The kit includes the tiled Invader Albinos, sealed in its static shielding bag, and then sealed in a protective foam envelope with an Invader sticker. There's also an Invasion of Rotterdam map (limited to 6000 copies, dating from December of 2001, measuring 600 x 420mm), and two unused 1-point Invader sticker sheets. I'm including in the pics a screen grab of a portion of the original email conversation Franck and I had. Overall an incredible offering in mint unused condition (besides typical wear to the mailing envelope). Images with personal information have been blocked out digitally for the sale, but the winner of this lot will receive these untouched.
