    I saw some of those at wondecon a couple of weeks back...they were in really poor shape though or I'd have gotten a few.

    (poor shape = rusty as hell and/or faded or mangled pics)
    Hell was full, so I came back.

    Yep, ebay indeed. These ones are in grat shape! There is just a bit of rust on the back of one of them, and none look faded in any way. I'm quite pleased, they will find a home with my Sasquatch patch.

    you lucked out then because the dealer was asking for $5 a piece for the ones he had. The backs were rusted solid and several of them looked like they might have had water damage or something to the pics.

    wow I haven't seen those in years. Gotta love EBay. Congrats!

    They were given out in the mid eighties if I remember correctly as a promotion for the book. The memory is fuzzy but I do remember having 2 of them. I had to trade books to get them but I had to have them.
