One of things I'd like to highlight in our film is the extent to which the '64-65 fair was promoted through licensed/branded items, so that we can put it in perspective compared to, say a modern hollywood blockbuster, to give the younger audience some perspective on how heavily promoted/pushed the fair was.

Does anyone have an official number (or heck, even a good estimate) on how many different products were "official" branded merchandise?

I know very little about the 1964/65 NYWF. If I recall correctly, in 1939 the number of Official Souvenirs was esimted at 25,000. I could be very, very wrong. OldSkool39 would know and probably know about the 64/65 Fair as well. You still here John?

Best wishes,

Based on the boxes in my garage and the piles I have seen at Randy's, Gary Holmes and and a few other members houses the number has to be around 2 million.

Seriously, it never ceases to amaze me at some of the stuff that got licensed.

There were 66 Official Licencees in '64 and 82 in '65, according to my records.
A few offered just a few items, but many offered hundreds or even thousands.
So it's anyone's guess.....
