The Choice is Yours

This is one of the most controversial promotional posters ever produced by the World RPS Society. The copy seems to suggest that in playing Rock Paper Scissors the “choice” is up to the player, but the promotion of the single throw, Paper, is clearly evident. The Society claimed that two other posters, one promoting Rock and the other Scissors, with the exact same copy were also produced, but due to a printing error never saw the light of day. This controversy ended with the destruction of most all of these posters which has made it a very popular item for collectors of RPS memorabilia.

Recently, one surfaced and was offered for auction on Ebay with a reserve price of $7000.00. It was later proved to be fake before the auction ended and never sold.
