    Recently I found some printing dies at a car boot sale,
    I believe they are test dies for a V.F.L sticker set from 1975, I'm only missing one team, Melbourne Demons.
    Not sure if I will sell the dies, or make limited edition prints of test art for a V.F.L stickers. if I make 500 of each team and sell them for $10 each... ehhhh , I'll have to check if it would even be legal... I was thinking, maybe cos they aren't "V.F.L APPROVED" and they were just test art, they might fall outside of copyright.?? But I will have to look into that.
    And if I can't legally make and sell prints, then I'm sure I could sell the dies for a pretty penny. :D
    this might just be the best "other investment" I've ever made.
    I'm curious to see what people think these could be worth?

    I was thinking of presenting them like that when I sell the dies. But I'll make a few hundred prints of each team before I do that.
    I might go stand between Richmond Station and the MSG on game days, I reckon at $10 bucks, with a little print out with a photo of the die and an explanation of what it is. I'd have not a trouble moving them.

    Great find! They are really neat!

    Could you print onto a t-shirt? I'd buy a Lions :D

    I don't know how it would go printing onto a shirt. the material would be to fluffy, but I'll do some experimenting and see how it turns out.
