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!
Yeah, still rather have the comics!
