It came from Charlie's basement

marvel superheroes viewmasters

One of the highlights of a recent trip to Chicago was being able to rummage through my friend Charlie's basement and look at his collection. It was almost a museum to growing up in the 70's, I thought I'd share random images of some of my favourite items. Expect a part two to this some time in the future.

I don't even collect Star Wars but I couldn't take my eyes off this vintage store display.

Loaded with Bronze age Marvels, not to mention multi packs.

Sigh, the one thing I could never seem to own, Stretch Monster.

That Man Thing comic in the rack was one of my first comics, I still have it (not in that shape) and the Star Wars display is great, I loved that time period the packaging artwork was just awesome.
