These were introduced 34 years ago as a sales gimmick for safeguard soap. Basicly the promotion was clip three coupons of your favorite soap (safeguard) and they would mail you a copy of this book. Bags and boards were pretty much not in existence three decades ago. A comic was read and stuck in your back pocket to be read again. So to have a copy of this key issue reprinted in this kind of condition is crazy. When you hold this copy in your hands you will be utterly thrilled. Special thanks to all you coupon clipping Mom's out there we luv ya!
