    Yeah it's well-known.

    BUT WOW How much value did the guy take off it buy trying to erase the other parts of the pictures? The box looks like it's been watered down for 20 years.

    But why would a person do a pepsi-cola one when nobody has seen it rather then do a exact copy of the pepsi sticker and say this is original and put it with a pepsi prime and nobody would know the different between the real or fake "why" do a pepsi-cola is what I don't get so maybe it is original, but I will find out when I get it!!!!!!

    no more so than reprolabels is i guess.

    no, i can not do any type of stickers. i just recently acquired the ability to use vinyl stock (white and clear, like what they use for G.I.Joe) i can not print on metalic yet like delta, or print white inks.


    Megatron187, no body is saying yet that it's a KO. i've NEVER seen a pepsi-cola version sticker before, and i've yet to actually finish my USA version pepsi reprolabels. however now that there maybe a different variation, it's very easy to print up both versions now.

    a quick search of vintage pepsi logos does indeed show BOTH versions of the logo were used in the early 1980's, and according to some sites, pepsi started phasing out the logo in 1989-90 and by 1991 went in favor of the new italic futuristic font.

    so it's VERY possible this is an early print run of the sticker, and changed when pepsi started to change the logo.
