These are real cool. It's very unusual for find these out in the "wild" at flea markets and such. You would think they would turn up but I just never see them at all.

 

They dont appear to have been collected as avidly as comics, though an OO collection did surface not so long ago in California.

 

Here are some random examples:

I dont know him, jimbo, sorry. I haven't actively collected these -or much of anything really - in quite a while. (The only things I've collected have been downgrades so I could liberate funds for other things unrelated to collecting.)

The ones he had were sold almost a decade ago....... from a Postal worker..... who also had a significant comic collection that later became a pedigree.... Lewis didn't get the comics. GOD BLESS...

I did get some high grade copies from a collection found in the Napa valley a year or two back.

 

Apparently, the guy didn't want his wife to know that he collected them, so had built a secret room to house them! It was only uncovered after his death.

Heck, my wife is an antique dealer and buys stuff like that for me whenever she sees it. She's a keeper!
