This guy is an American Icon who first appeared in 1929. In 2002 Popeye was ranked by Tv Guide (wow remember TV Guide? It was a must-have back then.) 20 on its "50 Greatest Cartoon Characters of All Time" list. This site has so much information about this amazing character. https://popeye.fandom.com/wiki/Popeye

These are absolutely amazing and such historic pieces. These were likely made for the Bicentennial which could not have come at a better time for our Country as it healed so many wounds from decades of strife from the Vietnam War, Civil Rights Movement, Watergate, and a general feeling of malaise that had settled in since the Kennedy assassination. A neat history of how this was put in motion and how much effort was behind it here. https://www.fordlibrarymuseum.gov/library/exhibits/bicentennial/bicentennial.asp

These stickers are becoming very uncommon for obvious reasons. I have trouble selling the last of something and I am going to have to break my rule and keep a pair of stickers from each of the 6 different sets I am listing. Please note old stickers the adhesive is the first thing to go so if you plan to affix to something they are going to need assistance aka glue.

My pictures seriously don't do it justice.

The vintage stickers are a reminder of a bygone era. Museums and Art Institutes have galleries dedicated to them and more and more of them and collectors are seeking these out to preserve their history. Once the limited supply for sale is gone and on display with collectors or in galleries then they will be very difficult to acquire.

Imagine this amazing vintage advertising hanging as home decor in any room of your home instead of a museum!
The Vintage Patriotic Bicentennial Popeye Stickers 1975 American Icon Since 1929 is the yin, to your yang. You've found what you're looking for.
