Blade Antenna Ball Mint on Card Original 1999 PWC Designs #3655
These were fully licensed products from Marvel Comics and we, as Pee Wee Comics, secured the rights to produced the antenna ballz line for a very short time. The card-back was designed by Josephine Pira our late mother but she never saw the finished production piece.
While the ballz were produced for a short time and made entry into the mainstream marketplace they were ordered and distributed in very small quantities. Our clients included Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Florida, Gadzooks, Hot Topic, Do It Center and Diamond Comics for comic specialty shops.
These were officially licensed antenna ballz and were the precursor to the Carl’s Jr plastic version Spider-Man ball. These ballz were made during the bankruptcy era of Marvel Comics. When Marvel became solvent again, the licensing fees increased dramatically and production was then shut down.
This is an officially licensed original 1999 Marvel Comics Blade mint in package. This ball was the precursor to the Carl’s Jr plastic version Spider-Man ball. These ballz were made during the bankruptcy era of Marvel Comics. When Marvel became solvent again, the licensing fees became too much and production was shut down immediately. We also have other officially licensed Marvel Antenna Ballz currently posted, so please look for our Punisher, Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and prototype antenna ballz. All produced antenna ballz still had a very low/limited production run with the Blade having the least amount produced.
