First up is an amazing example of Bat-Merchandising, a DC COMICS SUPERHERO PROMO GLASSES Fast Food Restaurant Store Display Poster featuring Batgirl! I remember when these "Pepsi Moon Glasses" came out and I totally loved them. In fact, I have a complete set of these babies somewhere deep in storage. The set took me forever to complete (this was before evil eBay ).
Then, here's a vintage copy of COMIC READER Magazine from August 1974. I said "magazine", but these were really more like small mini newspapers. When I was a little kid, maybe 11 or 12, I used to shop at a comic book store called, "Down Memory Lane". I always loved that name. Anyways, the Owner was a really nice guy and used to throw one of these in my bag for free on every visit.
The next 2 photos are some small mini-comics that were Free Comic Book Premiums hidden inside Post Cereal Boxes back in 1979. I have that 1st one in my collection and the 2nd one is a photo sent to me by a friend named Mike ( Thanks Mike! ).
OK, are you ready? This last toy is probably the rarest of them all, a true "Museum Piece", as Toy Collectors say. Here is a BATMAN COLOR DOUGH MOLDING MACHINE Set in the original Box. No, I don't own this. This is a random pic i found on eBay many years ago and I have not seen since. I'm not sure of it's origin. It might be British or Canadian. I'm thinking it might be "foreign" because it's so hard to find.
