Should there not be a measurement from the top of the card to the top of first cut out or the height of the cut out?

Well, with all that welcomed help from Corky and his ORIGINAL TOL card, the man from ebay, has put together a semi-matt/matt version of the card again, this time with the right specs, hopefully it will work this time and give an attractive base to display my Toblerone VW Bus.......... We'll see?


Naturally I will post photos when they get here.

Hello Everybody!

I finally received the Reproduction TOL *Trans-O-Lite* Promo-Display cards from that Ebay seller and I think that they are now very close to the original in both look and feel, I think that they make a very nice facsimile and it really looks cool in my VW toy collection.

I want to say a special thanks to  Everyone here at PD who helped me with specs and details and also scans to make this attempt at the TOL card worthwhile. ~ Thank You!

Nice one Tom, that does look really good and worth the little bit of hassle you endured to bring it to life and Yes, big thank's to the forum members involved with it, once again the collector's community spirit is in evidence, give yourselves a big pat on your back.
