Clear rating

Ever wonder what would have come in the mail if you ordered those Revolutionary War soldiers, or knights, or the 100 Army Men set with the footlocker?

The life-size monster?

The smoking dog?

The x-ray glasses?

This book presents on facing pages the original ad from the comic book and what would have come in the mail for your dollar's purchasing power.

A super nostalgic look at advertising as it used to be in the books and periodicals we used to read.
