1993 TYCO Slot Car X-MEN RACING LAYOUTS Set 6205! WOW!
    Item Description
    BEAUTIFULLY RARE! From The TYCO Industries of Moorestown, NJ FACTORY ARCHIVES this is the ORIGINAL, PHOTO Color Illustration PACKAGING ART that were used to shoot the RACE SET COVER for the TYCO X-MEN ELECTRIC RACING release #6205! Incredible, ONE of ONLY ONE Set Known. A RARE set of pieces of HO Slot Car Advertising & Printing History. In the days before computer design was widely used, Toy companies like TYCO Ind., would contract an outside artist/design firm to make a rendering of their ideas for box or card backgrounds. This work was then approved & brought to a Very High End Photographer, who would in turn, would produce a very High Resolution Photograph from a $50,000 camera. That photograph was then Scanned in, often on a $50,000 Drum Scanner, to a computer for final processing ($25K, if one was around.) From this point, In-House Employees of TYCO would design, print & Overlay the details of the CARD ART or BOX ART they were creating. Wording, overlays of the Track Layout, Fine Print, Bar Codes etc were made to the scale of the ARTWORK & then submitted for approvals. Finally, in some cases, plastic Separations were made in Primary Colors to attach to the Printing Press for the Final Product. An Amazin Trip from Conception to the Finished Product we enjoyed as a toy. You will never look at your Race Sets or Package Art the same! Certainly Suitable For Framing; Comes as received with original cover & details as shown. Much More Impressive in Real Life! Authenticity, quality & condition absolutely guaranteed.
