‘The Independent Phantom Club’, formerly known as ‘The Phantom Club’ of Australia was founded by John Henderson in 1981 Coorparoo, Queensland, Australia and ended in 1995. During this 14+ year period the club was very active with its promotion of the Phantom on T.V and Radio, and in newspapers and magazines. The Phantom Club published a total of 41 newsletters titled ‘Jungle Beat’. Issue number 1 thru to number 21 was under the name ‘The Phantom Club’, whilst issue number 22 thru to number 41 was under the name ‘Independent Phantom Club of Australia’.
When newsletters were mailed to club members, un-numbered/undated 4 to 8 page ‘Product Catalogs’ were also mailed to members, together with one and two sided ‘Product Flyers’ and ‘Order Forms’. A wide range of collectibles were exclusively offered to members of the club in this way.
The postcard set was only advertised in 2 of the 8 Fan Club ‘Product Catalogs’.
