I've covered this famed mail-away item from 1973 before, but dig this recent eBay win! That's right! It's the entire DC Comics sticker sheet, complete and like-new (tho folded)!

It's also loaded with tons of personal memories, as it's one of the very first comics items I ever mailed away for! How I bugged my mom every day after school, inquiring as to its (torturously lengthy) arrival! Then, one day, she presented me with a sturdy mailing tube that held--you guessed it!
