Stan Lee by Mail


Here's a late sixties ad that shows just how Stan Lee had already become a personality in his own right in a way that Julie Schwartz, Mort Weisinger and even Dick Giordano never did. Supposedly offering a signed photo of Ol' Smiley, I really, really wanted to order it from this nicely lettered ad but hey, a dollar could buy you five or six comics back then so I opted to do that rather than send in.

Spend a "measly" dollar on a photo of Stan Lee?
Or spend it on EIGHT count 'em EIGHT Marvel comics! With change back, yet!
Not a dilemma. No, not at all!
Though...the Merry Marvel fans who
DID send for this autographed photo,
and hung onto it for forty years,
can now sell it on Ebay for big bucks!
-Sigh-
Yeah, still rather have the comics!
