Super Tuesday: The Merry Marvel Marching Society

Here’s the ad introducing Marvel’s first fan club — the Merry Marvel Marching Society. Actually I’m not sure it was a club so much as it was an excuse to sell some swag that your average collector would die to have today. For the price of a dollar you scored a membership card, some “absolutely worthless” stickers, a button, and a 33 1/3 vinyl record (which you can listen to HERE, thanks to the miracle of the intertubes).

Interesting that if you got six friends together to join at once, you’d both get discounted membership fees and a special certificate, too.

Any Longbox Graveyard readers been around long enough to have been a part of the M.M.M.S.? Give me your membership numbers, in the comments below.
