The ads in the back of the comic books & Boys Life were something I'll always cherish. The excitement and wonder how these items worked kept me fascinated. What were your favorite products? Some of mine were the U-Control 7 foot Ghost Monster. For a great read, I'd recommend Mail Order Mysteries by Kirk Demarais. He documents just about every ad there was. He shows you the ad and then states a few different things; What We Imagined, What They Sent & then final thoughts. This was my first lesson in mail/advertising fraud as a kid.
