That's impressive! I figured we'd have to wait for Greggy to show up with his pillows. Where's Spidey?

I found a set of Third Eye cards that were identical to the much larger posters. They are about the size of a birthday card. I gave away about half of them over the years, and have not seen them for sale.

There's usually a set (of 24 cards) floating around on Ebay - two currently, one for $699 and one for $1000.

Yes, I meant "on sale", rather than for sale.(thumbsu

You can find them on ebay.  Sell for about $20 each

This thread is going to be amazing! I have to start a new want list now.

These are technically comics but I think they belong here.  Marvel mini comics from 1966.  You can find singles on ebay but a complete set like this is tough tough tough

Sgt Fury, Hulk, Thor Spider-man, Millie the Model, and Captain America, in  blue, red, orange, green, yellow and pale green.  They were sold in gumball machines and apparently also sold as cake decorations.  They're also the smallest comics published and possibly the first variant cover

Thanks. Although I have a pretty vast SA collection, my heart belongs to the GA. So, I rarely visit this section. I saw this thread and figured I’d throw up some stuff. I know I have a lot more and will see what I can dig up.
