ISO: Gold Crown 1 advertisement images

Hi. I'm trying to locate some nice, hi-res scans of Brunswick Gold Crown 1 ads and brochures. In particular, I'd like to find some nice images of the various apron and cloth combinations that were available from the factory. Does anyone collect GC1 brochures from that early- to mid-60s era?

For example, does anyone have a better/larger version of this one? This is the only pic I've seen of tangerine aprons with gold cloth (or so it appears). Hard to tell much from such a small image. Thanks!

Brunswicks site has a handful of GC images. Here is a link to a few but they are pretty low res.

I have a couple original copies of the blue table with gold cloth flyer that I had hi-res scanned. If you have a dropbox or somewhere else, I'll upload them for you. front is 13mb, back is 7mb.

here are quick thumbnail shots.

I know its a good distance from you, but this is an early GC1 with the plastic name plate. I have never seen a plastic name plate in this condition. This probably is an indication of the rest of the table. Don't know what someone would charge to move it, but if you got the table for 1500, you could have that time capsule GC you are looking for cheaper than the one you posted previously.

here are the 2 hi-res scans.



The 2 files are around 19mb. They are PDFs so kinkos should be able to print them as large as you like.

These are great. THANK YOU!

Does anyone have different images? Would still like to see all the various color combinations, if possible.

Rob, why just a sneak peek? I'm sure you have some great stuff to share!! This is great brunswick history.

I have that "blueprint" image also. It came as a photo copy with my table. I am going to use it for wall art also. Do you know the origin on this "blueprint"? Was it in a brochure or something? Also here is a layout for a pool hall.

It’s from a dealer sales catalog.
Sorry, it’s not for sale...

Dang it! I missed whatever it was that you gave us a sneak peek of. For some reason this forum won't email me when there's a new reply to my threads.... even though I'm subscribed to the thread. Grrrrrrr.

Sodly, Its the image I put in the next posting, the image on the right of the black and white blueprints.

Here is it scanned and enlarged to 300%. It a bit fuzzy so I am going to have a graphics friend try to clean it up. I think it will be a great size for wall art.

I sent the low quality blueprint to a graphics friend. He is re-doing the entire sheet so its clear and can be resized with no blur. Here is the sample he did. I think it will look great poster size as wall art.

Cool stuff! Thanks guys. Keep it coming. For some reason this darn website doesn't notify me where there are replies to my thread (even though I'm subscribed to it). So I don't always see these things in a timely manner. Sorry!

My buddy finished recreating the whole image, crystal clear and a PDF so it can be scale to any size with no pixilation or blur. I'm pumped, gonna look great at about 3x4 ft on the wall. Here is a screenshot...
