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.
